Cannot play quicktime RTSP stream from realserver

Reported by: andrew@… Owned by: r_togni@…
Priority: normal Component: streaming
Version: 1.0rc2 Severity: normal

Playing a quicktime MOV file from RealNetworks? realserver (evaluation version)
fails with

sdpplin: bad stream_id 3 (must be >= 0, < 2). Broken sdp?
sdpplin: bad stream_id 4 (must be >= 0, < 2). Broken sdp?
error: = expected
semicolon expected.

The movie plays with Quicktime Player on Windows

The SDP packet sets StreamCount? = 2 and lists
only two streams, but the IDs do not start at 0.

SDP packet contains (edited) :

m=video 0 RTP/AVP 96
a=StreamName:string;"Hinted Video Track"
m=audio 0 RTP/AVP 97
a=StreamName:string;"Hinted Sound Track"

If I hack past this by doing streamid -= 3, I get
librtsp: server responds: 'RTSP/1.0 404 Not Found'
librtsp: server responds: 'RTSP/1.0 461 Unsupported transport'
librtsp: server responds: 'RTSP/1.0 454 Session Not Found'
librtsp: server responds: 'RTSP/1.0 455 Method Not Valid in This State'

so I guess there is something more basic at issue. Mplayer does
an RTSP SETUP, which fails with 404, while Quicktime Player does
an RTSP POST operation.

URL above is currently valid but evaluation server may die and not be restarted
Movie file is provided with realserver evaluation download from realnetworks
