This is a project to take input from a DVD/Blu-ray player (or any other arbitrary HDMI Input) and make it available on the local network in a standardised format (initially HLS, though Smooth Streaming may come later if I'm feeling particularly sadomasochistic).

There are a limited number of HDMI ports on most TV's and most of my viewing now happens in Kodi (or more specifically RaspBMC). Given that Kodi gives me the ability to watch network stream, it'd be great to be able to stream from a single player to anywhere in the house (reducing the need to walk around trying to work out where a specific disk went).

The intention is that HLS-Stream-Creator (see project HLS) will do most of the leg-work in transcoding, so the main aim of this project is to build a system that can take input from a HDMI source and pass to HLS-Stream-Creator (ideally running on either a Raspberry Pi or in a VM).
