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?

  • Shouldn't the port be specified by the stream, not the client? Commented Jan 26, 2011 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)

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

  • Well, but do not support setting up proxy server, respectively specific ports which shall be used.

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.
