[vlc-devel] multicast stream receiving problems

No response. Perhaps i haven't shown enough effort.

If i pull any version of git code (2.1.0 and i even reverted to commits
around 2.4.0 release) and cross compile it successfully, the resultant
binary has hanging play back on windows i.e. there is buffering and long
pauses. Multicast streaming fails to work at all. Where as a simple video
file play back also hangs initially and gets smooth after a while.

Along with this any released version such as 2.0.4 or 2.0.5 works perfectly
fine on the same machine (win xp 64 bit).

I cross compiled using standard vlc wiki instructions with some extended
steps found in forums such as remake qt4 and remove npapi from package.mak

Any help please. I also tried increase network buffering from command line
up to max value but no effect.
