In case of udp multicast ffmpeg binds to the default interface which will quite often be wrong on multihomed hosts. The auth field of the udp uri is now used to optionally specify the interface address or name to select the interface.

The patch does not apply anymore to current git head, whoever wants to work on this, please also send the patch to ffmpeg-devel where patches typically receive more attention.

For IPv4 this should work fine using the ?localaddr option.
