I don't see a reason why not, but I'm not up on any possible differences
between how the QuickTIme Streaming Server might handle precompressed
streaming video and compressed-on-demand streaming video. From Director's
point of view it should end up being the same thing, but there may be
something in the preparation of that video that I'm not aware of, sorry.

Here's the overview document on streaming QuickTime in Shockwave, for this
side of the equation:
"Streaming QuickTime 4 Media in Director and Shockwave"

(It doesn't mention any differences with webcasts or other live feeds, but
it would be good to either test this or confirm it via Apple's server-side
