[vlc-devel] Request for addition to "modules/demux/livedotcom.cpp"

The RTSP client code (in "livedotcom.cpp") currently doesn't do any special 
handling of incoming RTCP "BYE" packets, which the remote RTSP server will 
send if the stream ends - e.g., if the server comes to the end of the 
stream's input file.  Because of this, vlc currently doesn't notice that 
the stream has ended.

The following simple addition will make VLC handle these packets, by 
calling "StreamClose()".

In the "Open()" routine, somewhere after the "tk" structure is created and 
set up, add the following, for each "MediaSubsession" object "sub":

if  (sub->rtcpInstance() != NULL) {
	sub->rtcpInstance()->setByeHandler(StreamClose, tk);
