After more reading, it looks like what I'd like is progressive http, so that
I can supply a non-fixed sized data set and have it play before it's all
received.  I should have mentioned that I'm working with mpeg2 / ac3 ts
data, which I'm getting mixed information on whether it's supported as


So maybe this is an Android issue and not a libavcodec issue, sorry about
that.  Though if anyone has some insights, I'd appreciate hearing from you.

Subject: Decoding while receiving via http on Android


I've got ffmpeg hooked into Android working with an OMX plugin, and it works
great with files, I can play with Gallery, or with a simple video player.
But I need to send a live stream to it.  


I'm doing so with a small http server, and testing with a file.  That works,
but it doesn't start playing until the entire file transfers, no matter how
big the file is. which means sometimes I get out-of-memory errors.


What else do I need to do to get it to render while it's reading data,
instead waiting for all of it?
