[FFmpeg-user] UDP to RDP multicast configuraton

I am trying to use ffmpeg to accept a live UDP SPTS stream from a remote
site and retransmit it on my LAN in RTP multicast format.  The source
contains one video and two audio in TS format and I want to simply
repackage that stream into RTP.  I can use VLC's streaming wizard to
perform this conversion, but VLC is not supported in my target system while
ffmpeg is running both here on my Mac and there. only my production linux

In the attached session I can get ffmpeg to output my RTP multicast on, but I have to filter out the audios and my VLC client
complains that there is a missing SDP​ description in the stream.    It
seems to me that I am only a few cmd line arguments away from having this
working and I would appreciate any help offered.
