Thats great, except for the fact that I have no choice but to use this
particular server for this particular content in this instance. Like when
someone sends you a vital document that just happens to be in a proprietary
format. Sometimes you simply have no choice.

Perhaps I'm being dumb, but I thought that if openRTSP is trying to play the
stream, it would be relatively simple to dump that stream to file. Or am I
missing the point?
