Here is how to do it ,even without using Windows Media software encoder or server:
(You will need a public IP and plenty of bandwidth)

VLC works in the three flavours: Windows XP, MacOS/OSX And Linux:
1. Download and Install VLC:
http://www.videolan.org/mirror.php?file=vlc/0.8.6a/win32/vlc-0.8.6a-win32.exe
2. Launch it.
3. Ctrl+N
4. Choose HTTP/HHTPS/FTP/MMS and fill the URL info with your own stream info
5. Example: mms://your.ipnumber.streaming.server/mountpoint
6. In Advanced options check Stream/Save (or something with /save option) box
7. Click in Options button
8. An Options window opens
9. In Outputs, check Reproduce locally (If you want to see how will be the content encoded and streamed to the users) This is optional, if you don't want to see the content, just leave it unselected
10. Choose MMSH
11. Put your IP in the url, choose 80 (or the port you will open in your firewall and/or router) as a port number (80 is open by default, is the http web browsing port)
12. Leave MPEG TS selected (Default)
13. In transcoding options choose MP3 as the audio codec, and WMV2 as the video codec, choose your required bitrate in both items and if you want 1 or 2 audio channels
14. Hit OK in the first and in the second window.
15. Open Windows Media Player in the user PC
16. CTRL+U
17. Write mms://ip.of.your.machine:80, example: mms://192.168.1.100:80 (if you put this as the content of an text file with the extension .asx, it will open Windows Media Player, .ram Real Player, .m3u Winamp, and so on)
18. Hit OK
19. Happy re-streaming,
Feel free to make additional questions
Regards
