Hi guys,

I'm looking for a streaming format so that one program can write to a file
while another program can read/play it at same time.

Seems webm can do it. but when play it with ffplay seems the newly written
data are not read out. I googled and see people saying the amount of data
can be read is determined when the read file handler is opened, that means
there's no way in 2nd process to keep up with 1st process. Does anyone have
experience on this?

Secondly, whatelse streaming formats do we have? I originally thought avi
should be but seems ffplay can't play it when it's beening written so I
guess it's not.

Thanks for help
