I would rather not pass a pointer in the chain. Stringifying pointers confuses 
valgrind, and allows users to shoot themselves in the foot. Admittedly, we do 
it in some cases anyway, mostly for LibVLC needs.

But in this case, you can probably simply create a pointer variable and 
inherit it in the RTP stream output. You will probably need the attached patch 
for the non-VoD case.

Synchronization will be "interesting" though.
