I'm not sure if it's necessary to mention mpegts here - there's nothing
inherent in it requiring that, although that's mostly the case. IIRC
they also do support mp3 via the same mechanism - I'm not familiar with
mp3 on that level, but I'd guess it also would work through this same
protocol handler that just concatenates the data.
