[FFmpeg-user] output lagging at startup

I'm running ffmpeg, it is reading from stdin and writes to stdout. When I
start it for a couple of seconds it doesn't output anything.
If I use an output codec with small bitrate this can take minutes which is
really bad, because I want to segment the stream and stream it with a web

I tried several command line parameteres related to various buffers but none
of them seems to solve the problem.
Is there a parameter to fix this?
