 You need to serve it with a streaming server instead of a mere HTTP
server. Red5 will work. Or Darwin. Or ffserver. You'll have to decide
which is best for your needs. Darwin can be hard to install and
configure, but it is very good and handles many streaming formats/
protocols. ffserver handles only RTP/RTSP/HTTP.

And if you are using the stock Android Media Player, you must serve it
in RTP/RTSP, not RTMP (which MediaPlayer does not understand). See for 
more details.
