No, it's not. The problem really is that the network is unreachable -
because the IP address in your URL is not real!

The version with "@" is wrong. However, the problem is that
is an unused IP (i.e., unrouted) address. Where did you get that URL -
it's not valid! (Also, I wouldn't be surprised if the port number "1234"
is bogus also.)

Yes, but does its server support RTSP? I.e., what made you think that
"rtsp://188.8.131.52:1234" is a valid URL for playing that stream?
