To be more precise, the switch is "stream-switch-entry". It tells the server
which stream to send. For more info about how it works, read this:


There is only one file in the source code that works on this, this is the asf
codec file, but I don't remember its name. A simple find|grep with
"switch-entry" should find the file.

About the "-bandwidth" option, it seems to only work for setting an upper limit,
but not a lower.
