>> That’s why your “live555.cpp” code is so complex.  I urge you to (sometime in the future) restructure this code - as noted above - to use a single thread that does nothing but run inside “doEventLoop()”.  This would simplify it considerably.

No!  Only the LIVE555 thread can call these LIVE555 functions.

If the latter that adds a shedload of complexity - there are 7 different sendXxx() calls in 20-odd places, and we would only have a (void *) to pass parameters with…

Well, that’s why C/C++ has these language types called ‘struct’s, in which you can put as many parameters as you wish :-)
