Description (last modified by reimar)

I've downloaded the current live555 sources from, compiled them etc.

Still, the stuff was not detected during configure. Running the detection steps from configure manually gave me the reason why the detection didn't work: The detection code no longer matches the APIs from the includes. So I changed the code to be "valid" again and detection worked fine.
After that, compilation failed due to the API changes and my skills are insufficient to fix that as well.

From the Changelog:


  • Support for the old, deprecated 'synchronous' "RTSPClient" interface has now been completely removed. Developers have had three years now to upgrade to using the asynchronous "RTSPClient" interface.

There is a patch on the mailing list but it still has issues.
Personally I don't use the feature (and do not even know against what streams to test), so this depends on other developers being interested.
For most purposes I think it is possible to play the streams through FFmpeg (which currently might require adding a ffmpeg:// prefix to the URL), but I don't know for sure since as said I don't use the feature.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

The fallback to the FFmpeg implementation should be working now.
Unless someone comes up to really polish the patch to update to the new API, we will just drop support for live555.
