I”m pretty sure you need to always specify the format (rtp) and the feed name needs to match an existing feed section

"Format Set the format of the output stream. Must be the name of a format recognized by FFmpeg. If set to ‘status’, it is treated as a status stream."

See https://ffmpeg.org/ffserver.html for FFSERVER documentation

See https://ffmpeg.org/sample.html for RTSP examples.
