I already have a Media Server on LAN, now I need a 'streamer' or 'packager' so that I
could pick up a 'live media feed' on that Media Server.

I'm sorry, I didn't explain it well.
I don't need the VoD service via DLNA, there is a need of some kind of an IPTV channel
that I source/stream from my local HDD.

I tried to stream the files via VLC but a renderer (TV, sony PS4, etc) stops playing at
the end of a first streamed file so I thought maybe FFmpeg could do the job better.
