[vdr] Re: MPeg2 encoder/transcoder with stdin/stdout?
ffmpeg ( http://ffmpeg.sourceforge.net ) can grab video from a V4L-source or
file and stream it to network or write into file.
Several input formats ( PES-, TS- streams, MPEG1, -2, ...) and several
output formats ( DVD, MPEG1, -2, SVCD, DivX, ...) can be choosen.
There's also input-/output capability for sound (sound device or file to
network or file (e.g. MP3).
But for streaming, you'll need a fast CPU!
Decoding won't need much CPU power, just like having a file ...
