Yes, some other folks I work with are using this for streaming of static
files, but what I'm trying to get going is live video. . . which again we
have working for non-h.264 FLV.

Yes, they do. . . but we're trying to get it to work without their streaming
servers. ;-) It seems very close, since I can stream live if I have the
beginning-of-file headers. I'm hoping to not have to reproduce those in
full, by injecting the SPS/PPS data in some other atoms mid-stream.
Thanks for the info!
