Really. You actually pointed out another bug with missing TS mux.

When you click HTTP in streaming in 0.8.6, the sout MRL looks like this:


Now with 0.9.2 HTTP streaming from GUI doesn't work at all - the MRL looks like:


and when you fire it up, the log shows:

stream_out_standard debug: extension -> mux=(null)
stream_out_standard error: no mux specified or found by extension
main warning: no sout stream module matching "std" could be loaded

So indeed, VLC is (and ever was) based around using TS for network streaming
- and now when the GUI doesn't provide it as default it fails.

    With kind regards,
