The snippet of ffserver.conf I posted works for me with audio and video,
provided the /tmp/test.mpg file has audio and video.

(On the other hand, it does not work with a live stream, whether with the
patch or with --disable-ipv6; I will post on -users about it soon.)

RTP itself can only handle one stream: audio XOR video. A control protocol,
RTSP for example, is needed to aggregate several RTP streams. Of course, the
streams can not live on the same ports.
