Thxs for your input, it worked like a charm, managed to get te output log to stdout and with tail -f on the output file log i managed to check the issue which was a simple /path location of ffserver and config files
Now everything fully automated, It checks if its running live input, transcoding, if not it fires up ffserver and 1 min after the ffmpeg -I for live transcoding.

Try editing your crontab so stdout / stderr go to a log file, to see the specific error - see example below. Also /var/log etc may have cron logs.
Another thing is I would use an absolute path to ffmpeg, you can find the correct path by the command 'which ffmpeg' in the shell .
You may also try putting the process in the background with an '&' at the end of your commands.
sh channel1.sh > /home/username/xxx.log 2>&1 &
You can also get some extra logging via these lines at the top of your file (after '#!/bin/bash') , and an exit on the error line.
