Yes, this was exactly what I was thinking... However, it might be perhaps
possible to shrink UDP unicast and UDP multicast into second button named 
"UDP", rename the first button to "RTP" and change the description that
user could enter unicast or multicast address on both (???)

Yes, fully agree.

Do we have a list of clients/devices not able to accept TS over RTP?
Looking at the SAP sessions announced in the multicast-enabled Internet,
most of them are RTP these days - and most VLC users are aware of the
need for RTP, even if they incorrectly announce their session as being
raw UDP - but I've fixed this in [12899] so this should disappear as soon
as they upgrade to 0.8.4.
