[gst-devel] rtp pipeline in rtsp server, possible?

I read the following:

To correctly and completely use the RTP payloaders on the sender and the
receiver you need to write an application. It is not possible to write a full
blown RTP server with a single gst-launch line.

That said, it is possible to do something functional with a few gst-launch
lines. The biggest problem when constructing a correct gst-launch line lies on
the receiver end. 

The receiver needs to know about the type of the RTP data along with a set of
RTP configuration parameters. This information is usually transmitted to the
client using some sort of session description language (SDP) over some reliable
channel (HTTP/RTSP/...).

As there is an RTSP server in Gstreamer, my question then is 'can I not 
run an rtp pipeline from inside this rtsp server'?

That way I think it would work 'normally'.

Secondly, how would I set this up?

Any help much appreciated!

Best, Dirk
