Good day.
I have problem with Mplayer(0pre7) or with my hand :-) and want to ask
can mplayer play over RTP MPEG4-ES stream (video only of course) ?
If it can't how play MPEG4-ES stream with enother method ?
I use VP3 board (http://www.vitecmm.com/product.php?id=32) and develop
for  it  video  server.  When  encoder create MPEG4(elementary stream)
frames  i add RTP header and sent it to network (don't use RTCP). Then
i try to view this stream with Mplayer:
1. #mplayer.exe rtp://
player show nothing.
Playing rtp://
Connected to server:
Stream not seekable!
2. #mplayer.exe -dumpstream rtp://
player of course dont show anything
and then i try view <stream.dump>
#mplayer.exe stream.dump
in this case player show all right.
3. #mplayer.exe sdp://channel.sdp
m=video 33700/2 RTP/AVP 98
a=rtpmap:98 MP4V-ES/90000
a=fmtp:98 profile-level-id=1;config=000001b003000001b509000001010000012000
Stream not seekable!

In case simple UDP sending when all frames created by encoder i simply
send in UDP socket and then
#mplayer.exe udp://
is not work to, in result:
Stream not seekable!

All the best!
