i just want to stream my RTMP live Streaming to RTSP using VLC Software. i was tested these streaming conversation in my local, the rtmp to rtsp streaming conversation working perfectly in my local side. the following code is working for local conversation

vlc -vvv rtmp://xxxxxx.com/jiljillive/live2 --sout '#rtp{dst=127.0.0.1,port=8554,sdp=rtsp://localhost:8554/test.sdp}'

After this i was done same thing in my AWS EC2 instance . i am doing these protocol conversation in EC2 ubuntu 12.04 64bit. this is my command

vlc -vvv rtmp://xxxxx.com/live/live2 --sout '#rtp{dst=127.0.0.1,port=8554,sdp=rtsp://xxxxxx:8554/test.sdp}'

this time streaming rtsp. but when i call the rtsp url to vlc for play , its not working

the following is AWSEC2 rtmp to rtsp console return code
