FFmpeg is (a library and) a transcoding tool, the specific
recording format "data" is currently broken.

Use mplayer -dumpstream or tcpdump or tools/aviocat
to record streamed media.
(You did not give enough information, so I cannot know
which tool would be the best for your usecase, there
likely are others.)
