I did as said Christophe. I create network adapter dvb0, tzap tune the dvb
card and tcpdump to receive datagrams. I run vlc with --miface-addr=

- when multicast is sent, and i don't have to use sdp file i can receive the
dvb/h signal
- when i am transmitting a mpeg-4 or h.264 over rtp and sdp file must be
used, the input stream can not be created.

I think the reason is that --miface-addr is only for vlc and since sdp file
is used the live555 library is responsible for the rtp stream.
So I should look on the lib555 library, don't I ?
