You cant stream direct video through VH servers. But you can video stream via a third party & show it on your site via something like an iframe (similar to youtube)

Hosting a video elsewhere (such as at YouTube or Vimeo) is not streaming: it is merely storing a file elsewhere to be played by proxy ..... and whether or not you imagine such a work-around, the fact real streaming itself is a process that requires significant band, the Terms of Service (http://www.vodahost.com/web-hosting-terms-of-service/) stipulation of keeping under the 5% of server resources is the prohibitive issue to contend with overall.

The simple (and easy to keep in mind) answer is VodaHost's Terms of Service (http://www.vodahost.com/web-hosting-terms-of-service/) clearly prohibit IRC and streaming, i.e. media such as video and audio.
