As per my understanding, the QTSS will negotiate the sdp contents once a
call is made to the server from a client. In my setup, the sdp file is one
that the server published, and is placed in the media's folder.
A Quicktime Client, Winamp and VLC player can access the streaming audio
using url rtsp://localhost/streamingmedia.
Does that mean, that the Real Player and Windows Media Player are not able
to communicate with the QTSS in first place, and therefore do not receive
any sdp content to be used to play the media ?
or is it that the sdp contents are received, but the players refuse to play
Also, I have read that Real Player is the default player for .sdp files.
Though my streamingmedia.sdp file placed in QTSS, when I open through real
it does not connect and play the contents either (though Quicktime Server
Is there any workaroud which can be made, like publishing appropriate .rm
and .mms files that will enable these two players to receive streams.

Windows Media supports rtsp/rtp protocols, but only for .asf and .wmv.
Windows Media Server and Windows Media Client don't support ISO mpeg-4
.mp4 or 3ggp .3gp. QTSS/DSS does not support streaming Microsoft's
proprietary .asf and .wmv files/formats.
As a result:
- QTSS cannot be used to stream to Windows Media clients (without
plug-ins that might support ISO mpeg-4, 3gp, etc).
- Windows Media Server cannot be used to stream ISO mpeg-4 to QuickTime
(or other clients that support mpeg-4 streaming).
I believe that is what Greg was referring to.
