I have tried it and it doesn't work. Maybe problem is somewhere else.
I set the dvb adapter as a network adapter, then the route is added after
that I use tzap to tune the card and tcpdump to receive packets from the
card. I start vlc with the sdp file but it doesn't take the datagrams from
the adapter.
May you say me why implementing ip stack in vlc is overkill? What is so
difficult, maybe I knowledge is not enough to do that, let me know what
problems I shall be aware, please.
