As for patches, my latest patches are what I sent to the list over the past
few weeks, I haven't had time to do anything yet since then...
As for the protocols, not completely sure, but it's on my list to fix also.
We may want to just guess and re-try on error (I'm surprised that SDPs don't
contain hints for this...). rtsp.c already contains code for options so that
the caller can choose tcp or udp in the URI (see option_list in
rtsp_read_header()) in case you prefer that.
