Hi Vistas,

I use same work-flow in my live transcoder:

It read and decode packets in one thread, pass decoded data to multiple
encode threads (to encode in multiple formats) and at the end, pass encoded
packets to one or multiple muxing threads, that uses custom writer to send
muxed data via HTTP.

Transcoder uses my AVCPP lib, that C++ wrapper for libavformat, libavcodec
and libavfilter (also: libavutil, libswscale)
