Thank you so much for the information. I will try that and see.
I have found a workaround. Don't know if this is the correct way of doing
Created AVOutputFormat using "AVOutputFormat* oformat = av_guess_format(
"flv", NULL, NULL)" and then manually edited the audio and video codec
fields in "oformat" before giving it to avformat_alloc_output_context2.
It works and I'm able to stream audio and video.
But I get the following warning:
"Failed to update header with correct duration.Failed to update header with
In the command line, I rectified this error with the flag -flvflags
Could you tell me how to set this flag in the API ?
Thank you so much.
