RTSP:// protocol support for XBMC
mplayer (on linux&win) now supports rtsp:// streaming protocol for realmedia streams. several tv channels, available online, are only available through rtsp:// as the streaming protocol.

i wanted to give a try adding rtsp:// support to xbmc last night. it worked nicely. i've watched the rte news ( for about 30 minutes with no trouble. i did not looked for memory leaks or so, i only wanted to see if rtsp:// could be supported with xbmc+mplayer

are there known show stoppers to add rtsp:// support to xbmc ?
ezar maintains an experimental mplayer build here that i'm told supports which supports rtsp: maybe give it a try?

i will. thanks for the link.

however, xbmc also needs some changes to accept rstp:// urls.
i've added "rtsp://" string matchers along with already existing 'streaming' protocols (such as mms://, http://, ...) in a couple of xbmc files.

the mplayer source code available from the xbmc cvs repository already supports rtsp://, there is only a couple of line to add in the xbox custom sections.
