Hi Carl,

Thanks for the feedback.
Yes, live555 support it according to Q&A (though the recommendation is
to use rtp instead).
I intend to use mpeg-ts over udp, (with given encoded buffers from HW encoder).
Do you think that it is better to do it with ffmpeg for the streaming
purpose, or better do it with live555 library instead ?
It seems that ffmpeg API is simpler for this but I am not sure if this
should work.

Another thing - Is the latency for the streaming will be minimal with ffmpeg ?

Thank you!
