Vstream-client is a fork off of the vstream library from the tivo-mplayer project. It has been stripped down to just the client code, and includes an example client application. If you have vserver installed on your Tivo (which most tivo hackers do), then you can use this simple client to stream .ty files from it. MPlayer includes support for this library. This library can be used by MPlayer/MEncoder to watch/re-encode tivo streams live over a network.
