So you have to encode the file, leaving space for the header, and then write the header once you have finished. This would tally with the error message - in that ffmpeg would be trying to write the file and then seek back to the start of the file in order to write the header. Obviously if the file is 'stdout' it can't do this. In this case I can't see that writing 3gp to stdout could ever work. Which is a shame.

I am not an expert neither, but I don't think apache can do that. We
need a dedicated streaming server.

I did try bbc web site, the flash video work on the n95, but I can't
find the way they do it (presumably rtsp)

Finally - A spam blocker that actually works.
