I think your best bet for figuring out why ffmpeg is failing to
transcode on the fly is to edit stream_flv.pl and change the piping of
std_err from /dev/null to a log file somewhere, then load up a browser
and try to stream a recording. Once it fails, open your log file and
see what it says.
That said, the files in git should work, assuming you've met the
dependency on ffmpeg.
