Note that the "testOnDemandRTSPServer" demo program *already* streams
MPEG-1 or 2 files (Elementary Stream, Program Stream, or Transport
Stream). You don't need to modify any of the code for this to work.
Note the file names that this demo program uses. (You can change these in
the code if you wish):
- If you're streaming a MPEG-1 or 2 Program Stream file, it is named
- If you're streaming a MPEG-1 or 2 Video Elementary Stream file, it is
- If you're streaming a MPEG-1 or 2 Audio Elementary Stream file, it is
named "test.mp3". (The actual file doesn't need to be MPEG layer III;
layer I or II will work also.)
- If you're streaming a MPEG-1 or 2 Transport Stream file, it is named
If your file has the correct name, but still doesn't stream, then perhaps
it's not well formed? Does VLC correctly play the file (i.e., locally, not
as a stream)? If not, then the file is not well formed.

That may be your problem. The input files must be proper MPEG files - not
in 'avi' format.
