Maybe it would be a good idea to leave out the bitrate-related options
completely, and leave ffmpeg use its defaults. I mean: the hard part with
ffserver is to find a combination of codec/format/protocol that can be
streamed, and a command line to produce it. Tweaking the bitrate options to
suit one's needs is a completely different problem, that is relevant also
when producing plain files.
