Hi:
What do you want to do?
1. Receive a stream? (Video/Audio)
2. Serve a stream ? (video/audio)
3. Or both?

I like VLC best, because I can use it as a streaming server and as a client to receive sound/video. I am not sure whether VLC is in the 8.x repo??
Totem (Videos in Mint) can be used as a streaming client also.


t(w)o be(ers) or not t(w)o be(ers) that is the question

On the Raspberry Pi you can run  ffplay  from  ffmpeg.tcz  for basic audio/video playback.
Download a copy and keep it handy: Core book ;)

You can. Highlight the text you want to copy by holding down the left mouse button wile dragging the mouse over the text.
Place the mouse pointer in the terminal window and center click to paste.

Right ! Thank You   :) ............ I'd forgotten that. Most distros now seem to work with the Windows way.
