I am trying to pipe /dev/video0 to out.raw and then immediately read it in
omxplayer. But I am getting no picture in omxplayer (I tried the same with
mplayer out.raw -> Playing out.raw but no picture shown)

My commands:
mkfifo out.raw
mplayer tv:///dev/video0 -dumpstream -dumpfile out.raw &
omxplayer out.raw

Any idea why I am not getting picture?
