Description:

vlc doesn't play anymore rtsp live stream:

access_realrtsp access debug: rtsp connected
[0x1ff9b58] access_realrtsp access warning: only real/helix rtsp servers supported for now

the same rtsp url work fine in vlc for windows and worked in arch too until the last vlc upgrades (if I remember well the last two vlc upgrade are broken)


pacman -Qs vlc
local/libdvbpsi 0.1.6-3
MPEG TS and DVB PSI tables library (needed by vlc for streaming)
local/vlc 1.0.2-4
A multi-platform MPEG, VCD/DVD, and DivX player
local/vlc-plugin 1.0.2-4
VLC mozilla browser plugin

This task depends upon

Giovanni,

I don't know what you tested but a simple google search for a public rtsp stream give me this url:

rtsp://s-0-1.sg.softspb.com:554/test/test.mp4


this stream works fine with vlc on windows and with gstreamer on arch but not with vlc on arch:

[0x9e4c38] main access debug: connection: Operation now in progress
[0x9e4c38] main access debug: connection succeeded (socket = 15)
[0x9e4c38] access_realrtsp access debug: rtsp connected

[0x9e4c38] main access debug: TIMER module_need() : 583,745 ms - Total 583,745 ms / 1 intvls (Avg 583,745 ms)
[0x9e4c38] main access debug: waitpipe: object killed

Hi guys,

sorry but I never used the rtsp protocol with vlc.
BTW, I've seen that post in the BBS and I just uploaded the new live-media and re-compiled VLC against it for both arch.
I tested with the following URL:
rtsp://s-0-1.sg.softspb.com:554/test/test.mp4
and it works fine here.
Please, let me know, so I close this bug report.
