The actual use case is that :
I am getting stream from an IP camera as rtsp packets. 
I have written a gstreamer app at the client side to display the video.
The IP camera network connection will be removed (or LAN cable will be
But the application should not stop, the rtspsrc should wait till IP camera
is reconnected to network. The video display should continue once camera is

If IP cam is reconnected within 40 seconds, the video display will restart,
but if that timeout increase, the application gets stuck. 
I tried increasing timeout, tcp-timeout and retry values. Still no luck. 

Shouldn't the rtspsrc continue working after the timeout that we set it to
work ?
