If I use ffmpeg to write into a file, the file is readable in VLC; if I change format to mjpeg, the stream is readable through ffserver; so I think there is an issue with ffserver/webm.

Please understand that we do not support third-party products here. You're using something from a fork that purposely copied the names of the FFmpeg tools and libraries. See: http://blog.pkh.me/p/13-the-ffmpeg-libav-situation.html

Feel free to re-open this ticket if you can reproduce this issue with the real tools from FFmpeg. See http://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/UbuntuCompilationGuide if you need help compiling.
