Good day to all. I have a little problem.

I am using ffmpeg to record from a live stream. I managed to make everything
to work fine but I have no seek on the resulting file. The command I used is

ffmpeg -i pipe.avi -vcodec flv -f flv -async 1 -r 25 -s 640x480 -sameq

Now I feed the pipe with

mplayer dumpstream rtp://someIp:5004 -dumpfile pipe.avi

The resulting file is exactly what I need... but with no seek. Can any1 tell
me what I'm doing wrong? Thank you for your time.
