All of my testing so far was with streams coming from an ffm feed. I just 
found this bug while running valgrind using a stream read from a file. Streams 
read from a file will reference freed memory because add_av_stream1() didn't 
copy the extradata from the codec.

Note that I still haven't gotten ffserver to successfully stream anything from 
a file, there are plenty more problems left to chase down.
