web application for streaming media

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
hi Experts

i have a NAS at home Dlink-321
i use it to stream media to my home LAN.

now i want to be able to  stream this media from outside my home as well.
i already have a web server at home which is reachable from outside world.

what is the best way of doing it?

i am thinking using a web application to do this.
but i am open to alternative ways of doing it too as long as the solution is open source.
i've heard that vlc can do it as well but im not sure howto integrate that with my web server.

please enlighten

Thanks Experts
