Hi all, i have a problem with encoding a stream.

Stream is coming from an Axis cam, and it's h.263

Till some days ago i had generated an mp4 capturing with vlc and then converted to flv by ffmpeg (ffmpeg -i '<inputfile>' -s 4cif -r 10 -b 512 -deinterlace -ab 64 -ar 22050 -ac 1 '<outputfile>')

now i've replaced -i inputfile with -i rtsp streaming captured directly from the camera.

File is generated, it works, but ... it's not seekable (i have a flash streaming server: RED5). If i try to seek, or pause, it always stop and restart at all

But if i 1st use vlc and then ffmpeg ... it perfectly works!

what to do?

p.s.: my vlc before had this parameters:
