[gst-devel] rtp / rtsp status

I would like to use GStreamer to stream a video using rtp/rtsp protocols,
could someone please summarize GStreamer's implementation status?

using gst-inspect I see a number of elements relating to these protocols,
however in all my searching I have found very little documentation detailing
the status of their implementation in GStreamer.

I have seen:
Bug 336301 – [playbin] can't handle RTSP source, throws cryptic error

However I have not yet seen, or been able to determine for myself any
indication of what exactly is precluding this functionality (playbin+rtsp).

I presume that rtspsrc and other related elements are sufficiently
functional, given that the test program (gst-plugins-good/gst/rtsp/test.c)
managed to connect and get data from the RTSP streaming server I had
configured using VLC.  This assumption is likely flawed however since the
aforementioned test program appears to be written on top of a lower-level
RTSP API, i.e. there is no GStreamer pipeline involved.

I am also attempting to hand-craft a pipeline that will enable RTSP video on
demand, however my efforts on this front have been met with little tangible

Thanks in advance for any assistance,
