Waiting for a new version in Factory means the problem exists longer,
compared to the devel package.

I have made that change already. Unfortunately MPlayer has no support
for the current live555 API, so I applied a patch to get it going. Not
sure if that broke RTSP etc. support. At least I was able to play audio
from rtsp:// urls. The video part was appearently already broken, vlc
worked fine.

If anyone does see a regression, please speak up.
