I am trying to play RTSP stream with Windows Media Player. I succeeded to do this with VLC player, but WMP says that there is a network error. In network options of WMP all possible protocols are checked. The settings of proxy-servers are the following: HTTP - browser, RTSP - autodetected.

The stream I am catching is generated on my computer by VLC player. VLC uses RTSP, no coding and the profile Audio-CD. It sends the stream to port number 8554. So in WMP I choose File, Open url and write rtsp://

I will be very grateful if someone tells me where I do something wrong.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

It seems that the only way to stream from VLC to WMP is to use MMS or MMSH, see
