Yes, so it seems.
If my analysis is correct,
maybe sending the streams separately could help, but in each of the streams
there will be PES headers that will be considered part of  the ES streams,
and will likely lead to A/V corruption.

IMHO demux_rtp should build a pipelined demuxer on top of its demuxer->video
(that will call demux_ts for this particular case).

I believe that this thread should move to mplayer-dev-eng, where we will
find much more help.
