This depends on how the RTSP *server* handles the RTSP "PAUSE" 
command.  For example, the LIVE.COM RTSP server implementation will ignore 
"PAUSE" if it's received for a multicast stream, but will implement it (by 
stopping the streaming) if it's received for a unicast stream.

I believe most other RTSP server implementations will work the same way.
