I was looking for a tool to send a stream of data with FEC where the

found anything but Udpcast that can do anything similar. I think that
maybe an "streaming" option can be added so the sender sends Hello
packets at the end of a block of slices+FEC so a receiver can hook to
the UDP stream.
What do you think about this? Can this be made modifying Udpcast without
broken it all? Is there another software that I can use?
Sounds like a good idea. I'll consider adding this for the next version.
I just released version 20090830, which has support for this idea.
You can now add a special flag (-Z or --streaming) to the sender, which
makes it retransmit HELLO packets during the transmission, which
receivers can then use to "jump onto" the ongoing transmission.
