There's a pb of logic for the "Output method" box : with your design, I
don't understand the the adress typed is for either HTTP, UDP or RTP,
and you're missing the TTL option for this kind of stream. So I suggest

- screen (no change)
- file (no change)
- stream : Address : xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx Port : xxxx
           Protocol : UDP / RTP / HTTP
           TTL : xx

I also suggest to move the "Encapsulation method" box to an option of
the "file" category of the "Output method" box, because you only have
the choice if you choose the "file" option !
