playout server

I have to develop a Playout server; in other words play the video files and do text/image overlays on the fly. I was evaluating different options. I had almost decided on desktop player built using Adobe Air. Then I came across Xuggle. It is "A free open-source library for Java developers to uncompress, manipulate, and compress recorded or live video in real time." They have such cool demos. It looks promising. I am gonna give it a try!

Sounds cool! (I like Adobe Air too, though I've never written anything with it!)

did you ever take a look at MLT ( the Media Loving Toolkit)

well you release your playout server to the public when it's done? i am searching for a opensource playout server.
