Aha, well the nice thing about VLC server is that it supports seeking. By using 
libcurl you can just send it a the seek position. So if that was the only 
reason for not using ffmpeg network code you may want to reconsider :)

Btw, current version of ffmpeg also supports http_seeking. So one more reason 
to reconsider.

If I see it correctly, currently gnash only supports progressive download type 
of streaming. Real streaming via http or rtsp would be a new feature.
