[Libav-user] ffmpeg to publish to streaming server (Wowza)

My use case: I need to programmatically (read: not from a console command line) capture video from a Mac's builtin video camera and publish that video to Wowza streaming server (clients talk to Wowza). I would like to use ffmpeg to transport the captured video from the camera to the Wowza server. A few notes on this: 

- For reasons that are non-negotiable (I cannot do anything about them), this video has to be published to Wowza for streaming. 

- Wowza supports the encoders based on the following: RTSP/RTP, RTMP, MPEG-TS. I am looking to use MPEG-TS for this. 

I have been scouring the Internet looking for any kind of code example which would demonstrate how to do this, or something near to this. I'm not having much luck. If anyone has a sample code chunk or can point me in the right direction, that would be great. 

Thanks in advance! Your help is appreciated.
