Streaming Media best practices?

HI Folks,

Could any of you point me to tutorial or be open to discussing a preferred-way to perform streaming-media from a Rails app?
Specifically I am needing to "forward’ a media stream from an internal server-farm to the external browser request.

Thanks for any help you can offer!
