May I interrupt this discussion and put forward the theory that the
"listen" mode of ffmpeg's http protocol/muxer was not made for multiple
connections? As far as I understand, it waits for one connection, and
terminates once this connection is closed.

The option "-multiple_requests" does persistant HTTP connections for
other sub-protocols, and has nothing to do with some sort of "server"

What you are trying to achieve was once provided by ffserver (until it
was recently discontinued).

nginx might be one option, and I once heard of an ffmpeg based server
similar to ffserver which serves only Matroska via HTTP, but I can't
find the link.
