If you meant that streaming same file to multiple clients, then if you do

gst_rtsp_media_factory_set_shared (factory, TRUE);

then all the clients will share the same stream, but then in that case
if a client gets connected later he wont be able to view playback
from start of file.  So essentially it will be like a live streaming.
