if I try to split the file I get an error telling me that the segment is
invalid, the RTP protocol also produces the error that I can not write the
ffmpeg -i rtp:// -f rtp rtp:// >100011.sdp

due to problems with ffmpeg and not to disturb longer users of the list,
try using ffserver for transmission via flash With A Player created by
me, check
the wiki and I found this setting and with these error messages

<Stream live.flv>
    Format flv
    Feed feed1.ffm

    VideoCodec libx264
    VideoFrameRate 30
    VideoBitRate 512
    VideoSize 320x240
    AVOptionVideo crf 23
    AVOptionVideo preset medium
    # for more info on crf/preset options, type: x264 --help
    AVOptionVideo flags +global_header

    AudioCodec aac

    AudioBitRate 128
    AudioChannels 2
    AudioSampleRate 44100
    AVOptionAudio flags +global_header

/etc/ffserver.conf:17: Invalid codec name: 'libx264'
/etc/ffserver.conf:21: Option not found: 'crf'
/etc/ffserver.conf:21: If 'crf' is a codec privateoption, then prefix it
with codec name, for example 'flv1:crf 23' or define codec earlier.
/etc/ffserver.conf:22: Option not found: 'preset'
it is assumed that the wiki should not have errors, for this reason I have so
many problems, because everything I find on the net is wrong
They forgive me for bothering but I have no place to go
