That's a completely different story here. That is clearly a bug, as it will
NEVER work. HTTP cannot work without a mux, at the very least "raw".

RTP is a mux, and the non-enabling of TS by default is quite consistent
with the switch from the hackish RTP access/access_output to the proper RTP
demux/stream_output. And with RTP, you simply do have cases that only work
with TS (although they could be made to work with it), cases that only work
without TS, cases that work with both.
