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.


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