Is it possible to build a Linux-only media streaming server which can do streaming of the formats supported by Windows Media Services? To the best of my knowledge, the popular streaming servers that run on Linux, like Wowza and Darwin, don't support this. Note that I mean proper streaming and not progressive download.
More generally, I wonder whether there are other features provided by Windows Media Services that can't be replicated on a Linux streaming server. In other words, what capabilities would I have to miss out on if my streaming server is Linux-only (so not even running a Windows VM image)?
