It looks like ffserver.c does a single load of the config file, and that is all there is for config loading. We really need a reload command to reread the config file and instantiate newly defined feeds, or else a kind of command-line API to dynamically add additional feeds once the server is running. How else to have a user-based streaming service? Without this functionality, all we can do is run pre-determined, hardcoded streams. It would appear that this limitation precludes being able to run a Twitch-like server wherein you can add new live streaming users on demand.
