I want to set up a streaming server to stream 3gp videos on-demand. I've tried using ffmpeg, but it seems ffmpeg doesn't support 3gp streaming. It gives an error saying

Codec for stream 0 does not use global headers but container format requires global headers

The log: and the config file:

Is there any streaming server for 3gp file streaming that works well in a Fedora 14 EC2 instance? Any suggestions?

Or, is there a way to make ffmpeg work for 3gp file streaming? I can live stream in 3gp format using ffmpeg.

Open Streaming Server seems to do it.

Is that still maintained? The last update was in August 2009 – SparrowG Jul 8 '11 at 11:19
I didn't use this. But this is the best answer I could get. – SparrowG Jul 24 '11 at 13:30
