Have you considered the more traditional approach: when a client is
accepted, create a new AVFormatContext for it?

It seems simpler, and more adapted for various uses, for example if an
application wants to handle clients in separate threads or even forks. But
maybe there are benefits to your idea that I have not seen.

Also, that choice seems orthogonal to the question at hand: what do you want
to do with the method and other connection options?
