Yes, the bug is most probably in RTP input since this is the only input
that doesn't work right with demuxdump.

Anyway, there was a comment for a long time saying stream_Peek is faster,
so I just implemented that idea and as a side effect it now works with
RTP input as well. 

We still have to find out, why RTP input doesn't pass input options like
":demuxdump-file=kkk" to demuxdump, while other inputs do it well.
It can be also workarounded by using "--demuxdump-file=kkk", which works
fine, but obviously the GUI is non-functional since it uses the : syntax.

      With kind regards,
