A public IP for mchawkins seems like a good solution. I also tried
port forwarding for the video through pony using socat. Unfortunately
while port forwarding works fine on the internal network, I couldn't
connect using pony's public IP:

jesse at pony:~$ MCHAWKING=
jesse at pony:~$ socat TCP-LISTEN:1111,fork TCP:$MCHAWKING

vlc http://pony.noise:1111/ works but
http://pony.noisebridge.net:1111/ does not.

jesse at barony:~$ nmap -p 1111 pony.noisebridge.net
Nmap scan report for pony.noisebridge.net (
1111/tcp closed unknown
jesse at barony:~$ nmap -p 1111 pony.noise
Nmap scan report for pony.noise (
rDNS record for pony
1111/tcp open  unknown
