PHP HandBrakeCLI won’t output line by line using proc_open

Is there another way to display line by line, realtime when using HandBrakeCLI with php? So far I am using fgets() in proc_open() function to get by bytes. The fgets() manual mentions the length: “Reading ends when length – 1 bytes have been read, or a newline (which is included in the return value), or an EOF (whichever comes first).”. So far it doesn’t recognizes new line.

// disable output buffering so we can send the encoding progress to the browser.
ob_implicit_flush(true);

$Command = 'HandBrakeCLI -i "/tmp/in-1.FLV" -t 1 -c 1 -o "/tmp/out.mp4" -f mp4 --strict-anamorphic  -e x264 -q 20 --cfr  -a 1 -E faac -B 160 -6 dpl2 -R Auto -D 0 --gain=0 --audio-copy-mask none --audio-fallback ffac3 -x ref=1:weightp=1:subq=2:rc-lookahead=10:trellis=0:8x8dct=0';

echo 'Starting...';

ob_flush();
flush();

$descriptorspec = array(
   0 => array("pipe", "r"),  // stdin is a pipe that the child will read from (we do not use it).
   1 => array("pipe", "w"),  // stdout is a pipe that the child will write to and we will read from.
   2 => array("pipe", "w") // stderr is a file to write to (we do not use it).
);

// We do not use exec() because we want to get the Stdout line by line.   
$process = proc_open($Command, $descriptorspec, $pipes);

if(is_resource($process))
{
    $line = 1;
    while(!feof($pipes[1]))
    {
        $InputLine = fgets($pipes[1], 1024);
        if(strlen($InputLine) == 0) break;
            echo '<pre><strong>Line: '.$line++.'<br /></strong>';
                print_r($InputLine);
            echo '</pre>';
        ob_flush();
        flush();
    }
    fclose($pipes[0]);
    fclose($pipes[1]);
    fclose($pipes[2]);
}
echo 'Done!';

Currently outputs:

Done!

The result doesn’t respect new lines and keeps searching until it reaches 1024 bytes.
Is there a different method I can use to display the output realtime line by line?
