Server side: NDNFS https://github.com/remap/ndnfs-port
I used to operate a server using this software. Initial setup is confusing,
but it's pretty stable afterwards.

Client side: NDN Firefox add-on
It should be possible to write a web app as the client so it can work in
more browsers, but supporting videos would need advanced knowledge in video
encoding and WebRTC APIs.

Yours, Junxiao
