[AG-TECH] Using AGVCR with latest Video Producer

The safest way to do it would probably be to configure AGVCR to playback to
localhost but launch vic and rat manually yourself (ie, go to your
VideoConsumerServiceH264 directory on the command line and do vic, and similar for RAT on, instead of doing
'launch stream apps' on AGVCR.

Just to clarify - are you doing just H264 or are you doing DVTS aka
ExtendedVideo as well?

Doug - I know ExtendedVideo streams are always on their own IPs, but don't
the H.264 services always point to the same IP and port as the normal vic
services? That's what I've always seen.
