Licensing is available from SIPcomm. The code runs on Solaris, FreeBSD 3.x, Linux, Windows NT, with other Unix platforms available upon request.


rtspd is a RTSP streaming media server.

The server is configured through the file rtspd.conf. The location of the configuration file can be specified via the -s command line parameter.


Features not tested


The rtspd.conf file should be in the following format:
DocumentRoot pathname
The path name of the document root. All the RTSP documents are accessed with this as the top level directory. For example, if this is set to /usr/local/rtsp then rtsp://<server-address>/ represent the file /usr/local/rtsp/
ServerRoot pathname
Defines the location of the server configuration files, typically "."; rtspd.conf and mime.types should be present in this directory.
CNAME canonicalname_of_user
The CNAME to be used in RTCP packets.


-s serverroot
Top level directory for the server to look for the configuration file. Default is currect directory.
Makes the server print out debugging information to stdout.
-o tracefile
Debugging information is printed out to the specified tracefile.
Run in single-process mode, for internal debugging purposes only; the daemon does not detach from the terminal.
-p port
Overrides the default port.
