If bandwidth is the only issue, you could stream a stream.  My camera is 
on one box and streams (via VLC) to a second box which has both ffmpeg 
and ffserver on it.  I only have one client for the output of ffserver, 
though.  But it is handling an incoming and an outgoing 19 MB/s stream 
without too many problems.
