I've done something remarkably similar to the streaming FLV stuff, but
don't have the source.  I do, however, have an encoding script I wrote
ages ago to convert to FLV via mencoder.

The basic command I use to convert is:

$MENCODER "$source" $fps -o "$dest" -of lavf -oac mp3lame -lameopts
abr:br=64 -srate 22050 -ovc lavc -lavfopts
i_certify_that_my_video_stream_does_not_use_b_frames -lavcopts

That generates a pretty good quality FLV file.
