[vlc-devel] rtsp-http-port disabled in web plugin

Hi, sorry to butt in, but would it not also make sense to have an
alternate port if the page was to be hosted "within" a company's own
network for internal use, & thus they may want their internal clients to
automatically resolve to a port other than 80 for security, so they
could differentiate it from (port 80 going out traffic) so to speak?

It does make sense (in my case at least) because vlc is preventing me
from connecting to a server on a different port (8080) which is the port
they use (apache is on port 80).

It makes no sense for the server/webpage to control the RTP source
port, and thus rtp-port is not allowed (it's kinda as if a webpage would
configure the HTTP proxy!). For rtsp-http-port, I don't know.
