Hi Carl,

If I can ask one last question on this topic.

I thought that maybe I can skip the muxing, and just use http live
streaming of the images one after the other in something similar to
the following:

./ffmpeg -f video4linux2 -s 640x480 -r 15 -re -i /dev/video0 -an
-vcodec mjpeg -bf 5  http://localhost:8099/feed1.ffm

What do you think ?

Thank you,
