Hi
This bug is a general bug and has nothing to do with hardware, therefor I have not filled in the HW specifications. VLC can play rtsp-streaming but MP blocks this feature of VLC (with VLC as external player).

Scenario:
I made a pls-file (myMedia.pls) containing 4 channel-links.
Then I assiociate pls-file with VLC and opened the pls-fil with VLC.
I then opened "VLC play list" and could easily navigate to all 4 channels and VLC can play them all.
I add new extension in MP config (I add .pls under video-extension) and put my pls-file in "my video" directory.
MP can easily play mms-streaming and asx-streaming but not rtsp-streaming and local-streaming (MY VLC SERVER).
I tested even to create one pls-file for every one of streaming links (stream1.pls, stream2.pls, stream3.pls, stream4.pls) and MP could play stream1.pls (asx-stream) and stream2.pls (mms-stream) but not the other two pls-files.


(myMedia.pls):
-----
[playlist]
file1=http://www.researchchannel.org/webcast/asx/rtv-high.asx
Title1=RESEARCH CHANNEL
Length=-1
file2=mms://wm-live.crossnet.net/dknettv

stream1: (stream2, stream3 and stream4 were created in the same way, containing different links of course)

[playlist]
file1=http://www.researchchannel.org/webcast/asx/rtv-high.asx
Title1=RESEARCH CHANNEL
Length=-1
NumberOfEntries=1
Version=2

Bug:
MP can not run these two channels:
NRG HITS (rtsp-protocol) and MY VLC SERVER (http-protocol), despite I can run these URLS by standalone vlc-player. MP has no problem with running RESEARCH CHANNEL (asx-streaming) and Christian TV station (mms-streaming). I use vlc as external player for MP. I installed MP without tv-server. (so I just use VLC as streaming server). I have not installed any plugins so this can not be a plugin conflict issue.

I even tried to associate rtsp with vlc by this reg-file but it didn't help.

(rtsp.reg):
---
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\rtsp]
@="Real Time Streaming Protocol"

"URL Protocol"=""
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\rtsp\shell]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\rtsp\shell\open]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\rtsp\shell\open\command]
@="\"C:\\Program Files\\VideoLan\\VLC\\vlc.exe\"%1"
----

Could you please fix this bug.
Thx in Advance

A workaround to this problem:
I can easily launch rtsp-stream inside MP by MyPrograms plugin by using VLC as "Launching Application" indide the plugin's config. Then why this plugin can properly use vlc.exe while MPs external player feature can't do this easy task?
The problem seems to be either MP uses in fact WMP instead of VLC as external player though I choose VLC as external player in MP-config or ther other possibility is that MP uses old configuration settings of VLC. (I think playing RTSP-stream is quite a new feature of VLC).
Any ideas?
Is there a way to see that it is really VLC running (and not WMP) inside MP?

Cheers,

If there is another way to catch and watch rtsp-streams inside MP?
I don't use tv-server but i wonder how do you guys watch rtsp-stream that you get from your tv-server?
