As I said there might not be existing tools to do that. 
libebml/libmatroska would be able to create such streams and read them. 
But it needs the app on top...

Basically for such a stream the Segment has an "infinite" size (-1). And 
obviously some things like Cues can't be used since the location is not 
known beforehand...
