Sorry, I was talking about the RTSP muxer. We have 2 possible approaches:
1) chained muxers
2) the original approach taken by Martin, which is similar to the 
approach currently taken by the RTSP demuxer (this is why I mentioned 
the demuxer).

I might be missing something again, but I do not see particular problems 
with this.
Anyway, for the moment let's focus on the muxer. If the chained muxers 
approach works well, I'll have a look at creating a proper RTP demuxer 
(to make RTSP muxing and demuxing more "symmetric"), but this can come
