No change is required from end-user perspective in the end when the 
plugins/extensions are adapted to the new port. (In the current vdr-dev 
1.7.x most plugins also have to be adopted to work with the latest 
version so this is not really an issue, see cChannel changes in 1.7.13).
Also, for experienced users (and 1.7.x is still a "dev" version) 
changing a port number in the config (or worst case in the plugin source 
code) shouldn't be too complicated either.

streamdev, live and vdradmin are not using its own protocol but http (on 
a non-standard port). The reason for not using a standard port is that 
port 80 will be already in use, so using a non-standard port is feasible.
