Hi guys ,

I used ffmpeg , and ffmpeg2theora , with oggfwd for streaming to the
icecast2 streaming server without any problems.

But now , only works if I use ffmpeg2theora.

I try with one of the latest svn version and  one that I consider "
stable" because  is ok for all my needs , and they don't work.
This is the complete shell output

ffmpeg -i /home/pierpaolo/Scrivania/31.mpg -vcodec libtheora -acodec
libvorbis -ab 128k -b 1000k -f ogg - | oggfwd localhost 8000 123456

I installed libtheora and libvorbis , normal and develop version , via
apt-get on my ubuntu linux 8.0.4
How I can  fix this problems?

Best Regards
