In order to be able to deal with bug reports like this, I'm going to need 
both of the following:

1a/ The publically accessible (i.e., not stuck behind a firewall) "rtsp://" 
URL of a stream that illustrates the problem, *or*
1b/ The publically accessible "http://" URL of a hinted QuickTime file 
that  - when streamed by a Darwin Streaming Server - will produce a stream 
that illustrates the following.


2/ Explicit instructions (i.e., an "openRTSP" command line) on how to 
reproduce the problem.

If QuickTime Player can read/play these files OK, but this other software 
cannot, then you should complain to the authors of this other software.
