Can you tell me what, specifically, about your 'manager' (by which I 
presume you mean 'server') does not work with the original LIVE555 
RTSP client code?  If your server is behaving in a 
standards-compliant way, then I will see what can be done to update 
the LIVE555 code to work with it.

If, however, your server is not complying to the RTSP/RTP/RTCP 
standard, then you're not going to get much sympathy from me or from 
most other people on this mailing list, nor do you have hope of your 
server working with any other RTSP/RTP/RTCP client (many of which are 
closed source and so could not be changed at all).  If your server is 
not standards-compliant, then *it* is the thing that needs to be 
fixed - not VLC.
