    After help from anyone who might know a bit about the RTSP Header and how it works.

    I'm in the middle of writing a plugin for the tv server to make a rss feed of the channels (done, but could use a little clean up). Once you click on one of those links its ment ot start up timeshifting then redirect the client to the RTSP stream.

    So far I can get all this to work, problem is the header I send back to the client to redirect doesn't seem correct.

    Sadly i've had a hard time finding useful information on the internet about this since I haven't got a really good idea on what i'm trying to tell the client with the header.

    If someone could give me a example header to reply back to the client and explain a few of the variables like "CSeq" that would help alot.

    The best document i've had to go on so far is: RFC 2326 - Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP). H. Schulzrinne, A. Rao, R. Lanphier.
    Sadly I haven't quite got it yet.

    Anyway thanks for any help you can give and hopefully what i'm trying to do will work :).


    Anyway after going through the standards a bit more I came up with a solution to my problem, now I can generate the .rss file and get VLC to redirect to the TvServer RTSP location.

    Sadly when I tried to use tversity to connect to the rss feed it sent a unexpected header to my mini webserver so i'm gona have to go over that and make it compatible.

    Alwell hopefully I might have a useful plugin soon to upload :).
