Thanks for the reference. I read this thread some time ago, and I think
my suggestion is in line with your description... Anyway, I'll re-read
this thread to check if it contains more details that can help here.
I think the big question here was if the "chained muxers" approach is
better than the approach currently taken - for example - by the RTSP
demuxer (directly invoking the RTP demuxing functions, instead of having
an RTP demuxer), or not.
