  Can you give some examples of what tv cards ? Don't they already have
v4l or v4l2 support ?

  What cards ?

  Can you give examples of what cameras you have in mind ? The rtp stack
has been tested quite a lot with rtp cameras (including by one of the
biggest ip-camera manufacturer).

  what do you mean by "real rtp source" ? What crashes are you
experiencing ? What operatin system are you running ? What version of
gstreamer and plugins are you using ? Furthermore the gstreamer rtp
implementation does *NOT* depend on ffmpeg. I don't know how you came to
that conclusion.

  What kind of fixes do you have in mind ?
