About those, Micheal Niedermayer said:
"rejected, these silly signed/unsigned casts make the code less readable 
feel free to send a patch which disables/filters these warnings or 
change the actual types where its correct and possible"

I have no other solution for the issue, considering it is a buffer used 
as a raw unsigned byte buffer some places and as a char buffer in others 
(depending on if ffserver is writting to http header or body).  
Splitting the buffer into two buffers (one uint8_t, one char) would be 
pointless, changing the type to one or the other would still give 
warnings, and using something to disable the warnings is just a bad 
idea.  Consider this patch dead unless someone has a better idea.

I'm more concerned with my:
[PATCH] Fix leak of AVPacket data in ffserver Jan 24, 2006
However, the patch I submitted assumed the inclusion of the warnings 
patch from above.  I'll resubmit if it will be applied.
