We are using Nvidia Capture to capture and encode a 3D app. Our solution
writes the stream into a named pipe \\.\pipe\stream -

This stream is playable with "ffplay \\.pipe\stream".

The problem now is that we have to channel this stream to our local net
work and internet. Low latency is very important.

We are exploring possible solutions like :

ffmpeg -override_ffserver -f \\.\pipe\stream  http://<our server

With mpegts and pure UDP it works for localhost and local network. I also
tried to reencode the data, without success.

So, what is the simplest way to send the stream up to our FFSERVER (or
Gstreamer server)?
