> other programs such as VLC have convenient notation for udp read socket in
> port 1234: udp://localhost:1234
> in ffmpeg/ffplay a more cumbersome udp://localhost?localport=1234 is needed.
> the attached patch makes udp://localhost:1234 behave exactly like
> udp://localhost?localport=1234 for reading UDP without breaking anything I
> could think of.
> use of ?localport flags is maintained for backwards compatibility.

While at it also please add documentation to doc/protocols.texi.
