Sending a stream (command line)

Streaming with the command line:

$ dvgrab --format raw - | ffmpeg2theora -a0 -v5 -fdv -x320 -y240 -o /dev/stdout - | oggfwd 8000 hackme /tcvi.ogg

This translates as: take the raw input of the attached device (typically a digital camera), pass it to the program ffmpeg2theora that will create a video flux with a frame of 320×240. The result is then processed by oggfwd that sends is to an icecast server (in this case the local address on port 8000 with password hackme on mountpoint tcvi.ogg)
