I've been working on this same setup. I had a lot of luck using
crtmpserver. You simply stream MPEG TS to it via TCP (FLV doesn't like
dropped frames) and specify the stream name in the metadata.
Something along the lines of:
  -metadata streamName=stream1 -f mpegts -o tcp://localhost:6666.

Then you can use a simple flash player (like
https://github.com/revmischa/simplestream) to play it on the browser
