Hi Bob,

That looks pretty awesome seems to offer just what I was after, just one 
question tho I was kinda hoping to stream the video out as flash video 
flv dont suppose you know if thats at all possible ?

Or if anyone knows how to stop the buffer underflow messages in ffmpeg ? 
its streaming my webcam but it grinds to a halt eventually sigh.

Thank you all.
