The delivery mechanism appears to be 'relevant' to the bug only 
because it (for some unknown reason) causes AMR audio data to be 
delivered in a form that VLC cannot decode/play.

HOWEVER, the same bug can be demonstrated in a much easier way - by 
attempting to play (either locally, or via HTTP) the file:
Again, VLC (version 0.8.5) cannot play this file, either locally, or 
using HTTP.  However, QuickTime Player and RealPlayer can play this file OK.

(Note that I obtained this file by recording an incoming RTSP/RTP 
stream that VLC was unable to play - i.e., a stream that illustrated 
the problem that you are seeing.)

THEREFORE, I claim that our first priority should be to figure out 
why VLC cannot play the file
If you fix that bug, then it is very likely that it will also fix the 
RTSP/RTP AMR problem.

Yes, in that thread - from mid March - I tried (apparently 
unsuccessfully) to make the same point that I'm making now: First 
figure out why VLC cannot play the file "test.amr".
