Well, in the case of NAT, it does, the router closes the port after not
receiving packets for some time (around 30s in my case), so that when
unpausing a paused stream, vlc does not receive anything. I have
submitted a patch to live555 to resend dummy packets when unpausing a
stream, in order to reopen the ports, but I have no idea of what it
became ;-)
