Bug ID: 105231
           Summary: module-rtp-recv's unicast does not parse
           Product: PulseAudio
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: Other
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: modules
        QA Contact:

according to documentation (bug occurs with pa10 and pa11)
The address used to listen for SAP announcements, defaults to It
can be either a multicast group or a unicast address."

when sap_address=<unicast> is specified such as, pulseaudio fails
with a message that this address is not acceptable.

The sender can still be set to a unicast address
(load-module module-rtp-send source=<source> source_ip=

load-module module-rtp-recv sink=<sink> sap_address=
is not acceptable, 

however "load-module module-rtp-recv
sink=alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo sap_address=
latency_msec=50" works.

if sap_adresss is not set to then the only way for it to work would be
to allow the default to be the destination(the multicast address).

If the multicast address is specified on the receiver side with sap_address, it
works. The multicast address of course also works when not specified.

just to make clear,
tcpdump demonstrates the unicast address is being sent to but is
only playable on the receiver side if sap_address is set to

The documentation can also be slightly improved to mention that the rtp sender
be set to an rtp sink.monitor.

"It reads audio data from an existing source and forwards it to the network
encapsulated in RTP. " should mention that the "source" not be a final sink
device otherwise it wouldn't work.
