Well, if an application program causes your operating system to die, then
that's hardly the fault of the application program - instead, your
operating system is buggy, and perhaps you should upgrade (or switch) to
another, more stable OS.

Not easily, but one thing that you can try instead is use the
"testOnDemandRTSPServer" test program. That program streams various kinds
of file via unicast, on demand. In particular, if you have a file named
"test.vob" - in the same directory as "testOnDemandRTSPServer", then you
can run that application, and it will print out a "rtsp://" URL that you
can use to access the stream (e.g., using the "vlc" media player).
