In other words it does not work for the outstanding majority of users.

Also, it fails to work in many cases where recording is actually useful: RTP, 
VideoForLinux (1 & 2), Live555/RTSP, Jack, DC1394/Firewire, DVD, DirectShow 
and QuickTime capture because they are access_demux, and I guess it does not 
work with MMS and RTMP because they do not use TS.

In other words, it only works with: DirectShow DVB, DVB for Linux, the 
obsolete raw UDP input, and to _some_ extent HTTP... which is very little.

At least, the dump access_filter and demuxdump modules work better because 
they can both record any file format, not just TS. However they're still 
unable to record from an access_demux.
