Thanks for your replay Gareth. I am using playbin to display streaming. None of those messages comes out when rtsp streaming on the server stops.

Would you mind sharing your pipeline please?
I have had success with this by picking up the following messages:
GST_MESSAGE_ERROR- I seem to get this when the RTSP server fails to startup at all

GST_MESSAGE_EOS- I get this if the RTSP stream is working - then stops (network failure or similar)
GST_MESSAGE_CLOCK_LOST- I put this in - but as of yet have not seen it when testing

I created a rtsp pipeline to receive streaming. If the server side stops streaming or network is done, how can the clinet side know this happens. I checked bus message output and there is only tag message. NoGST_MESSAGE_ERROR or GST_MESSAGE_EOS messages.
