Why don't you fix VDR to output MPEG-compliant streams instead of adding
evil hacks to all media-players to support illegal streams ? Compliance
would really benefit the community.

BTW the "es.mpeg" stream works perfectly, you just have to prepend the
file name with "/mpgv:" to tell VLC that it's a raw video stream since
it can't be easily differentiated from PS (actually, identifying raw
elementary streams is the whole point of multiplexing).
