I'm curios if there is any RTSP Player for android which allows specify port for I guess A/V communication.
My situation:
I want to stream over my RTSP Proxy, but there is a restrictive company FW, but for our purposes there are few port in DMZ, but I couldn't find any android RTSP player which allows specify these ports.

We can do that on Symbian, because there is Real Player, which allows it.

Any hints or workarounds?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Shouldn't the port be specified by the stream, not the client? – Matthew Read Jan 26 '11 at 20:32
@Matthew Read: I need to go over proxy, which is in DMZ, but only on few specific ports, which can be used for A/V communication, otherwise interleaved mode is requested (I can live also with this solution, but i need to set up proxy for RTSP) – Ency Jan 27 '11 at 13:21

Default video player on Android does support RTSP. You can specify the port in the url (<server>:<port>)

For programmers, VideoView does support rtsp urls – Suresh G Mar 28 '11 at 8:07
Well, but do not support setting up proxy server, respectively specific ports which shall be used. – Ency Feb 7 '12 at 9:53

Real player has a beta version for Android phones, so maybe it will be the one you are looking for.

Nope, unfortunately Real player for Android does not have this feature. – Ency Jan 27 '11 at 13:18
