Stream video over LAN with a capture card

I have an HTPC (windows 8.1) connected to my home network in my living room that I'd like to use for local streaming. Can I use a USB capture card to send video from my STB, PS3 etc. to the HTPC and then over the network to other PC's in my home using something like VLC (preferably in HD)? If so, what capture card should I use? Would this one work? Is VLC the best choice of software?

Thanks in advance,
Ryan

  1. You can use any capture card really. VLC seems like a pretty good idea actually.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "capture card" but the following is what you'd use.

    After that I think you can't stream the video until you've finished the session and have a single file to work with.
