Or you might want to try out the Helix Server (from Real Networks) - which is 
afaik not really "free" either. Have a look at:
Haven't yet played with it. But I heared the developer-tools they offer allow 
easy configuration and compilation. The server allows you to do streaming of 
RealAudio/-Video if needed.

I'd appreciate to hear from you about your test-results on streaming-video-
servers (private mail) - or maybe others here are interested as well.

Good luck,
