Save RTSP video streams to a file
Authored by: eno on Jan 09, '04 06:54:57AM

I've had no luck with MPlayer, nor with this hint. Here's the result trying to do it from the VLC GUI:

And the result from the command line (using the --rtsp-tcp option)

[00000175] livedotcom input error: MediaSession::createNew failed
Bus error
