Everything i've streamed with VLC that I can recall has been a TS, but 
i'm mostly in MPEG2 VOB land, anyway these days.  The RTPChoose() 
function in VLC_ROOT/modules/access/udp.c seems to indicate that VLC 
either streams TS (over RTP / UDP) or non-TS MPEG audio or video.  So, 
I guess MP3 wouldn't be streamed as a transport stream, though I 
thought it did ...
