yes something like that (if it can take raw mpeg4 video, I could pass
that in too (then you could theoretically just create new divx frame
headers, and no reencoding would be needed)).

Well, I'm not sure how it can tell a video frame from an audio frame in
streaimng mode.  perhaps if I could provide 2 fifos one for video, one
for audio, that'd be easiest.  In any case, I may look into it further
when I get a chance.  I'd like to make sure the current transcoder stuff
is working well first though.
