291- improved dct_quantize speed.
292- factorized some motion estimation code.
293

301 mmx/see optimisation). Enable multiple image size support in ffserver.
302- added multi live feed support in ffserver.
303- suppressed master feature from ffserver (it should be done with an
304 external program which opens the .ffm url and writes it to another
305 ffserver).
306- added preliminary support for video stream parsing (wav and avi half
307 done). Added proper support for audio/video file convertion in
308 ffmpeg.
309- added preliminary support for video file sending from ffserver.
