[vlc-devel] Multicast VoD

I am currently working on a modification of the VLC source code to 
enable multicast VoD.
I would like the VoD server to stream the video towards a multicast 
address, instead of the address of the machine which sent the RTSP 
The first step is to modify the RTSP module (/modules/misc/rtsp.c) and 
more particularly the request handler functions (RtspCallback and 
RtspCallbackES) so as to recognize "multicast" word and get multicast 
address. This can be found in the SETUP request, inside the "Transport" 
field pointed by psz_transport.

My question is : how can i modify the code so as to "link" the VoD 
server with the multicast address ?
Up to now, I could not identify which function establishes the link 
between VoD server and receiver.

I a working on VLC 0.8.6c source code.
Thanks in advance for any kind of help.
