Is it possible to -ss in ffmpeg to the file, that is being received via pipe? So that I start reading it from a given timecode? I am not encoding the file.
So it is definitely impossible.
here is what I was trying to achieve:
Bad news: the file WILL be downloaded from 00:00:00
Good news: downloading WILL stop at 00:00:10
I guess something close to the desired goal of having a 7-second long clip that starts at 03 initial seconds is achievable through librtmp / streaming and then seeking to the desired timecode, but that sounds like an overkill for what I am doing.
