[vlc-devel] [PATCH] Added new RTP stream option, rtcp-bye, for sending RTCP Goodbye packets

I've read long time ago about the gather module but I forget about it.
I've just tested the sout-keep option without it and of course it
keeps ending elementary streams.

So, without anything, with only gather module or only sout-keep
option, with a playlist or loop mode VLC ends elementary streams (and
as pointed by Rémi sends RTCP packets). My real problem was the ending
of elementary streams.
BUT with the gather module AND sout-keep option everything works as expected.

Thanks again for the tip.
