Not sure how specifically to word this... I'm wondering if there's any way to take a video stream from one application, for example VLC Media Player, and present that video stream to other applications as a video input source. For example, could I broadcast a video file from my hard disk to a website that allows video conferencing using a Flash applet?

Basically, I'm looking for something like Soundflower, but for video streams. Is this possible?

Tags, title, question re-wording suggestions welcomed -- I'm not sure how to properly describe this. Thanks!
