How to stream CompressImage data as mjpeg

Are there any packages for streaming CompressedImage data as mjpeg over http?

I've found mjpeg_server and web_video_server, and while these support output as mjpeg, they only accept raw uncompressed image data as input.

My project is running on a Raspberry Pi, so computing resources are limited. I'm using raspicam to stream image data. It supports both raw and compressed output. However, the raw node consumes 180% CPU whereas the compressed node consumes...9%, so you can imagine why I'd like to use the compressed stream.

I believe web_video_server does support compressed images. Source code for the class here:

how do I use in a web page? I can sometimes get the video tag to work but only with certain cameras and I am not sure why. What is the best source of documentation for web_video_server?
