Until/unless the RTSP stack were untangled from the RTP output, supporting raw 
UDP is not possible in a clean fashion. While that might be a good idea, I 
believe it would incur a *lot* of work. I am strongly opposed to quick-and-
dirty hacks in the RTP output for raw UDP; it's already complicated and messy 
enough like it is now.

However, raw UDP streaming as such is a stupid idea in my opinion. And x-
playNow is completely useless: standard SETUP + PLAY does the same thing.
