Yes, this is pretty much what I need to do, except for the " output is
fed to applications like
 mplayer." part, I want to do this by creating like a fake dvb or in
this case v4l device, which mplayer could go read.

I checked out this application, but from what I can see this won't set
up a device that any application can read. If I am wrong, please
correct me. Thanks
