I am writing stream into video files with ffmpeg. Each file about 15 minutes. I want to be able to play finished and unfinished files with VLC (program using MetaVLC to be more precise). Which codec will best suit for this scenario?
I tried raw h264. Vlc can play them with option "demux=h264" but it unable to seek or change current time of playing. They play only from beginning.
I tried flv, but VLC can't play unfinished file.
