Ok, thanks. I am going to have a look at them, hopefully soon.

I think qt uses standard RTSP/RTP, so it should be already supported.
If you know about qt rtsp:// urls that ffplay cannot decode, I am
interested in them (maybe it's just due to unsupported payloads, I do
not know...).

AFAIK, the only not-fully-standard feature provided by qt is in "RTP
over TCP" handling: qt does not use the standard RTP over RTSP, but
seems to use RTP over HTTP. I've been told that having it working
should be fairly easy, but I suspect that some additional work might
be needed to correctly integrate "RTP over HTTP" in libavformat in a
clean way.
