In general, once you've made changes to the supplied code, you can't 
expect support (especially with a "@gmail.com" email address :-), but 
in this case the problem is obvious:

>Received SETUP response: RTSP/1.0 461 Unsupported Transport

Our RTSP server implementation returns this error in exactly one 
situation: The client is requesting TCP-streaming of a multicast 
stream.  That makes no sense.  If you want to support RTP-over-TCP 
streaming, then it has to be for a unicast stream, not multicast.
