I’ve been looking at the references and the source code to try and figure a way to get this to use an ffserver as a source, but from what I can make out, it can only retrieve data from files. Am I missing something about how to use this? There isn’t much in the way of documentation, so I thought it’d be best to ask here.

I’m sorry, I never did implement any sort of ffserver support. In fact, I don’t really know what that is. I suspect it wouldn’t be too hard to add, though - for a hardcore C++ programmer.

Ah… ffserver is a part of the FFmpeg project.

From ffmpeg.mplayerhq.hu/:

I’m looking for possible ways to stream multimedia from a server to panda, and I’d recalled using ffserver and ffplay (a media player using FFmpeg) in the past. Since panda makes use ffmpeg, I assumed that it could interact with ffserver.
