Inconsistency in input syntax ?

Ipkiss and I have noticed that the syntax that should be used for
udpstream is : "vlc udpstream://host", whereas the syntax for dvd
is "vlc dvd:device at ...", and http input, as an example, is "vlc
As a consequence, at the moment, network input doesn't work if you
use "vlc udp://host" or if you use the interface to specify an host.
(Alexis, could you confirm please ? :)) - we got an error like that one :
input: access 'udp', demux '', name '//22.214.171.124'
input: opening server=//126.96.36.199 local=:0
BuildLocalAddr: unknown host //188.8.131.52
So, I see two options :
- get rid of the '//' (not a good idea because url IS usually
- use '//' for dvd input (yeah, but not really pretty : vlc
To my mind, the second solution is the best.
Any ideas, opinions, solutions ?
