 I've made tons of attempts to get this to work...  I've tried VLC and then
 finally LIVE555 Media Server.  I made 3 streams, 1 MPEG1 - MP2 Audio, 1
 MPEG2 - MP2 Audio, and finally 1 MPEG2-TS - MP2 Audio stream using FFMPEG.
 I have done everything I can imagine to get this to work.  However, the
 results do work great in VLC.  LIVE555 Media Server even offers UDP and
 TCP RTSP as well as a RTSP over HTTP Server.  There can't be any way that

 #EXTINF:0,1001 - DRI

 verbose logging and the stream does exist, you'd never know there was a
 problem without the verbose logging (Well except the fact that video never

 Note: Usage of the Server is SIMPLE, download the binary to a folder.
 Then drop your MPEG video files in the folder with it.  Run the server
 from inside that folder and it will offer the video files that are in the
 folder automatically.  It will use the default RTSP port 554 on both UDP
 and TCP and VLC will smile when you access them.  I can even seek around
 the stream, which I wasn't expecting.
