I have been using ffserver on a different box to get a live stream on my 
IPod (works great) However, i would like to keep everything on one box. 
How would you satisfy the input file for ffmpeg using:

tail -f /path/to/some/in/progress/recording.mpg | ffmpeg -the -right -options

ffserver works to play the existing live.mpg file, but will not continue to play the file as it grows.
