Thank you very much for your reply.
From my understanding, what vlc can do is receive
MPEG data via UDP. What I'm planning to do, is to
replace all the UDP sockets that are created to
transmit data with sockets from a new transport
Does this file that you mentioned
(plugins/access/udp.c) help to control MPEG data
transmission in any way? I looked through it and it
seemed to be checking for addresses and ports.
Hope to hear from you soon as I need to get all
this sorted out as soon as possible. Thanks a lot!! :)
