If you're running a RTSP server, the simplest way is just to exit the 
entire process - i.e., using "exit(0)".  (If you're running a RTSP 
*client*, you should do a "teardown...()" on the stream first.)  But if you 
want to keep the process alive...

No, "UsageEnvironment::reclaim()" only deletes the "UsageEnvironment" 
object - and that should be called at the very end (after everything else 
has been deleted).

"Medium::close()" is the way to delete any 'liveMedia' object  (i.e., any 
subclass of "Medium", including "RTSPServer").

Most of the 'test programs' don't bother calling this.  Instead, they just 
call "exit(0)".  However, you can see an example of this at the end of
