OK, if you ultimately want to have just one field, then we should have
reasonable defaults. That means no '@' for multicast addresses and port
defaulting to the same value everywhere in the VLC code (1234). 

Then a simple autocompletion could be easily done, prepending just rtp:// or
udp:// in front of an address, and we're done.
