Can anybody please recommend a good native linux Video-on-Demand media server, which is codec-independent and supports random seeking while viewing a movie?

VLC can do that, but it works via RTSP, which is UDP and is really not good for heavy-loaded public networks. Unreal media server works with its own TCP-based protocol called UMS. It supports random seeking and works great  in all networks.
