Using FFmpeg streaming unix desktop to windows via UDP

"FFmpeg is a free and open-source project consisting of a vast software suite of libraries and programs for handling video, audio, and other multimedia files and streams."

FFmpeg is powerful, and sometime it is hard to figure out what exact the parameters to be used to achieve your goal with it. Today, we will teach you how to streaming Linux desktop to remote windows by using FFmpeg.

Voila, now you can view your Linux desktop on Windows now.
