I now see a bug on roundup asking for this, but... Is this really a good 
idea? AFAIK, "rtp://..." URLs are not standardised in any way, and the 
only standard way to identify an RTP session is an SDP. I think that 
something like this patch can work in some cases, but will fail in some 
other cases (I believe there are a lot of them - basically, the only 
case in which this can work reliably is TS over RTP...) and will end up 
confusing the users even more...
