That's helped! I've now got it flushing a page when there are over 23
packets (ffmpeg2theora's magic number) and the resulting stream plays
perfectly in both Xine and mplayer from file. Xine sometimes struggles a
bit when playing the stream over a network though, might need a lower
packet count per page for such simple video. Is there a handy way to
find the time duration of Theora or Vorbis packets?


Thanks Zen and Ralph!
