I have recently been experimenting with the RTSP/RTP support (using our 
"LIVE.COM Streaming Media" libraries) that was recently added to 
VLC.  Overall, I'm very pleased with VLC - I'm now promoting VLC as the 
leading standards-based media player (having pretty much given up on 
QuickTime Player, due to its generally poor performance and its increasing 
list of unfixed bugs).

However, I did notice a problem playing some MPEG-4 audio 
("audio/MPEG4-GENERIC") streams (which QuickTime Player plays OK).  For 
		This plays for only 4 seconds.
		This doesn't play at all.
However, the following stream plays OK:

I was running 0.7.1-test1, on Windows.

Does anyone know whether this is a problem with the codec (MPEG-4 audio 
decoder), or somewhere within VLC proper?
