Well, in this case, client AND server can stop the stream.
In vlc (client), if no data is received in 10 seconds, it disconnects.
Server side (not vlc), if nothing is sent from the client, the server
may close the stream (and there's nothing the client can do). Usually,
sending RTCP RR or RTSP commands keeps the RTSP connection alive.
