Hello,
I got streaming working using a named pipe on Windows. Great!

The camera (Allied Vision) is streaming 80fps to the pipe. 

I'm reading from the pipe like this: 
ffmpeg  -y -vcodec rawvideo -f rawvideo -hide_banner  -s 658x492 -pix_fmt gray 
-i \\\\.\\pipe\\Pipe -vsync vfr out.avi

The output video seem to have all the frames and the output looks good. 
However, the video plays about 3.5 times slower than the input!?

The output from ffmpeg when running looks like this:

Input #0, rawvideo, from '\\.\pipe\Pipe':
  Duration: N/A, start: 0.000000, bitrate: 64747 kb/s
    Stream #0:0: Video: rawvideo (Y800 / 0x30303859), gray, 658x492, 64747 
kb/s, 25 tbr, 25 tbn, 25 tbc
Stream mapping:
  Stream #0:0 -> #0:0 (rawvideo (native) -> mpeg4 (native))

324.1kbits/s speed=3.22x

and the last 'frame':
frame=  401 fps= 66 q=8.3 Lsize=     704kB time=00:00:16.04 bitrate= 
359.6kbits/s speed=2.65x


I also tried -r 80, instead of the -vsync vfr, but the result is the same..

Any helpers appreciated!
