[FFmpeg-user] New To FFmpeg streaming question

I did a little more testing and it appears that the following works to create a .mp4 file:
ffmpeg -i "udp://@" -vcodec libx264 -preset slow -crf 20 -c:a libvo_aacenc -b:a 128k -vf scale="trunc(oh*a*2)/2:480" "C:\inetpub\testVideo\myTest.mp4"

However, it doesn't seem to be playable/live while the command is running.  I have to terminate the batch job before the file can be viewed.  So there must be something funny going on with the localhost, or port 8080, or permissions for FFmpeg to write to that port.
