    I believe that the best setup is to give each computer a public IP. 
Though the node comprising multiple computers appears as one participant 
in the venue, the data streams coming from each computer are sent 
independently. Similarly, the computer in the node that is given the 
'video consumer' service will be the computer receiving the data 
streams. The data is not funneled through the controlling computer.
    There are probably network setups that avoid public IPs for each 
computer, like iptable rules on a router or other NAT solutions, but I 
think these will be difficult to setup and maintain.

    The disappearing bridge problem has been around for awhile. I don't 
believe there is a solution currently.
