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://" is a valid URL for playing that stream?
