Comment (by slhck):

 Replying to [comment:6 heleppkes]:
 > It should probably be documented that for mpegts you want the ssegment
 muxer, if its not documented properly somewhere already and you just
 didn't find that.

 The documentation mentions that:

 > stream_segment is a variant of the muxer used to write to streaming
 output formats, i.e. which do not require global headers, and is
 recommended for outputting e.g. to MPEG transport stream segments.

 Perhaps if we'd replace "recommended" with "necessary", it'd be more
 obvious that you need the ssegment muxer.

 It honestly took me a while to find the source of the error although I
 think I'm quite experienced with the tool.
