Thanks for your answer,

No i'm on Mac OS X.8 and ffmpeg 2.0.7.
I know it's possible to do that if you don't use -segment option :

ffmpeg -i udp://   -acodec copy -vcodec copy -map 0 -f mpegts -t 60 /Users/stan/Desktop/Capture_FR2/out_`date +%T`.mpg

But this syntax don't work with the option -segment…
