This file streams OK for me. I am streaming from "testOnDemandRTSPServer"
running on FreeBSD, and playing the stream successfully on Windows (using
both VLC and QuickTime Player).
I have left my server (FreeBSD) running at
(I'll leave this running until at least 1700 UTC Friday.)
Are you able to play this stream successfully (using VLC and/or QuickTime
Player) on your client machines? (Note that the stream is ~1.4 Mbps, which
is about the bandwidth of the server's Internet connection, so expect a
*lot* of packet loss.) But you should be able to hear recognizable audio.
>Also, I mixed up big / little endian -- Macs are big endian of course.
It's still possible that endianness problems are indeed to blame for the
problems that you're seeing, because to date I have tested this only on
little-endian machines (x86s running FreeBSD and Windows). Or perhaps the
problem is specific to MacOS X, although not endian-related???
It would be nice to try to nail down where specifically the problem is
happening (i.e., streaming from a Mac, receiving/playing on a Mac, or both).
