Hey Guys,

I'm trying to load a live stream from red5 and save it to a file.
Using the following is resulting a very long delay (5 - 10 minutes) before
it start to read the stream:

 ffmpeg -i "rtmp:// test.flv
(I can see in the red5 logs that it connects and the stream starts)

if I use the live option, it connects and but the stream never plays:
ffmpeg -i "rtmp:// live=1" test.flv

Loading a static stream from red5 works just dandy.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
