Or in other words, given that the generated streams can be played fine
by ffplay and vlc, can you suggest according to your experience what
are the guidelines for making streaming to browsers and playback work

involving ffserver? (Yes this would be probably off-topic, but useful
nonetheless for the readers and the archive).
