I tried few hacks on Live555 and managed to play a stream with our
manager. Unfortunately, seeking wasn't working and I probably broke
compatibility with other servers.

Since I'm quite new to VLC code, writing a new module was the easiest
way to implement an RTSP client suiting our needs without breaking
anything else.

Low priority, it comes after Live555 and RealRTSP modules.
