>  I have made repeated tests and have verified that if I set a client port on the command line then I cannot play a SDP file that is defining multicast streaming from the camera.

Patient: “Doctor, it hurts when I do this.”
Doctor: “Then, don’t do it!”

If you’re asking to play a multicast stream, then you’re asking to join a stream that has a given IP multicast address *and port number* (both of which are specified in the SDP description).  It makes no sense to try to change your port number to be something else.  So, don’t do that!
