[Libav-user] MOOV Atom Not Found

Hi Guys

I am wondering how it is possible to play streamed MP4 files that are
produced by FFMpeg - it seems as though AV* puts the MOOV atom at the end
of the file which means that the entire file would have to be downloaded
before the video can be played. What I am trying to achieve is a kind of
http-streaming where the video is played as soon as possible.

Can someone tell me how a conversion for live streaming is possible? Also,
I would be doing the file conversion dynamically in memory which means that
I cannot just encode a file, re-position the MOOV atom and then stream.
