I've the problem that ffmpeg insists on creating 1500 byte packets when
directing to stream via plain udp. This is a problem when streaming over
DSL-lines or over VPNs which limit the packet size to a value of 1472
bytes (DSL with PPPoE) or even less (many VPN solutions). Is there a way
to tell ffmpeg to produce smaller packets?

Best regards,
