That actually calls for an actual DLNA server. There are some solutions
which nicely wrap ffmpeg for you. Two come to mind - I haven't gotten
around to trying them, but they might do fine for you:
- mediatomb
- Universal Media Server

Beware, the latter uses Java. ;-)

As far as I understand, they can be configured to transcode only if the
receiving end requires this. They also understand quite a few formats,
not least thanks to ffmpeg.

I'm not sure, but I believe you should then be able to relay these
streams to your "central" DLNA server, if you don't want your TV to
pick up a second one.

happy holidays,
