I've seen this sort of thing done a couple of ways with audio,
one being what I do in my house:

I think VLC can do audio+video streaming over RTP, but without
the inter-room synchronisation. I don't how (or even if) MM1
fits into this picture, though.

Another way is a neat hack that I saw at a bug-squashing party at MIT:

I don't see MM1 playing any special role in that either, though.
