As far as I'm aware the following points are most problematic:
 * ffserver uses internal functions, see FIXME in libavformat/libavformat.v
 * ffserver uses the ffm format, which is incompatible with codecpar:
    - It sets AVOptions of the stream->codec.
    - It sets fields like qmin, which is not possible with codecpar.
 * There is no working FATE test, so developers not using ffserver
   can't really work on it for fear of breaking stuff.

Best regards,
