These aren't regressions, but:

 - RTP streaming is broken, as RTP is not an access output but a stream
   output on its own so the syntax is different
 - setting the bind address (HTTP/MMSH) is now deprecated and can lead to
   unexpected behavior. It probably shouldn't be offered to the user, or
   at least the user should be clearly warned (as in the warning logs)
 - also, there should be a check or something to prevent binding to the
   same port as the http interface (see #5364)
