I think this question should go to the FFmpeg people. I don't know if
they support writing elements with unknown size in there.

You may also have a look at GStreamer, it has support for that.

Now just read the input file (part by part) from server side and send it via my own protocol to the client-app, where i'm playing it. Everything works fine! Now I want my application to work with live streaming video. As we have read on matroska.org, mkv-container provides live streaming support. For that I just need to set all segments to unknown size and after that I can freely concatenate those segments to my buffer-file and transport them through the network. So I need to encode any input video with such rules.  But, unfortunately, I haven't found any information about how to do it with libav*\libmatroska or some other way. Can I just encode input video in such way with ffmpeg application ? Or I can do it only with libmatroska\libeml? Some other way?
