[FFmpeg-user] Piping example?

Hi Carl,

Thanks for directing me to the libav-user mail list. 

I would, however want to start and use the ffmpeg executable from within my program (in a process) and open the pipe programmatically, like in the brief stackoverflow example mentioned in my first post. This to avoid getting to deep into the ffmpeg code, as I believe that may be a larger project.
