Hi All,

Does anyone familiar with the communication between ffmpeg and ffserver?
for example :
ffmpeg -loglevel debug -f video4linux2 -r 30 -s 1280x720 -input_format
mjpeg -i /dev/video0 -vcodec copy http://localhost:9080/feed1.ffm

as my understand,
ffmpeg use http post(localhost) to ffserver, then ffserver can use "recv"
system call to get video data.
per the result I tested.
the mechanism about http post to local host is not stable for long time
because ffmpeg do tcp send to ffserver, the send will get stuck when I test
for about 30 minutes.
then ffserver can not get new video for the client preview.

Does anyone have idae about this issue?
