Simple ffmpeg UDP Video Streaming (from BeagleBoard running Ubuntu)

I really mean simple, this is a one command line UDP stream from the BeagleBoard (running Ubuntu ARM) to my desktop (IP address in this example), the source video is an FLV file inside the ARM-board:

$ ffmpeg -i UNIQLO_MIXPLAY.flv -v 0 -vcodec mpeg4 -f mpegts udp:

ffmpeg streaming from BeagleBoard played by VLC on the desktop

Although it’s a break-dance video, it plays uninterrupted, without any break.

Here is how my desktop see the stream with VLC player:

With less documentation, a more complex setup with integration to Wowza Media Server is available on my github.
