I have my own application using libavformat to stream RTP. The code is too
dirty to be published, but what my application does is similar to
ffmpeg -re -i test.mpg -vcodec copy -an -f rtp rtp:// -vn -acodec copy -f rtp rtp:// -newaudio
(test.mpg must contain MPEG1 video and mp2 audio - you can test with different
codecs by changing "vcodec/acodec copy"). The stream can be received with vlc
(by using the SDP printed by ffmpeg when it starts).

I also use ffserver for testing - just add en entry like this to the
configuration file:
<Stream test1-rtsp.mpg>
Format rtp
File "/tmp/test.mpg"
And use vlc or ffplay for playing the following URL:

But I have some bad news for you: I see that I have "--disable-ipv6" in all
my build scripts... I do not remember why. I am going to check, and I'll
let you know.
