I'm new to mencoder but I have used ffmpeg a lot. I've had success using
mencoder to record from a tv tuner to an avi file with the -o option eg: -o
outfile.mpg dvb://, but I'd like to output to a red5 server instead - the
output url being rtmp:// I've tried
'-o rtmp:// and the command runs ok but
if I play the output in vlc it's just blackness. Can mencoder output to
red5 (like ffmpeg can) ? if so, what is the correct syntax? thanks for any
