In the ffmpeg line (144) ffmpeg -y -i $filename -s 320x240 -r 24 -f flv -ac
2 -ar 11025 -ab 64k -b 256k /dev/stdout

you should be able to tweak the quality settings - e.g. increasing the size
from 320x240 and upping the bitrate of the video (the -r option)

I use for higher quality : ffmpeg -y -i $filename -s 480x320 -r 25 -f flv
-ac 2 -ar 11025 -aspect ratio 16:9 -ab 128k -b 400k /dev/stdout

There's a whole list here: http://ffmpeg.mplayerhq.hu/ffmpeg-doc.html

I find if you increase the buffer size in flash player, you can use the
flash controls to go forward (only by as much as in the buffer)
