I have two named pipes, audio_conv and video, for s16le and h264 streams, respectively. I want to convert them to webm format on fly. Data to these pipes proceeds from my application, that parses proprietary format and converts audio. But sometimes there is no audio in incoming stream, and I can't easily determine it on initialization stage. When I pass both audio and video, it is OK, but when there is no audio, corresponding pipe is empty and, as I understand, ffmpeg stops converting video and awaits for some audio data.

Command I use:

ffmpeg -v debug -probesize 10000 -r 12 -analyzeduration 0 -vsync 0 -async 0 -i video -f s16le -ar 8000 -analyzeduration 0 -channel_layout mono -i audio_conv -f webm - | ffplay -

From ffmpeg log:

After that I can see that video stream is passed to ffmpeg, but after some time it accidentally stops. And then, after kill'ing ffmpeg process, it outputs:

Is there is a way to tell ffmpeg to skip audio if there is no input data?
