Hey experts,

 I want to construct an RTSP message to be sent from a client to a server with the following fields:

CSeq: 1
Transport: RTP/UDP; client_port= 25000

Then the server should reply with a message withthe following parameters:

S: RTSP 200 OK
S: CSeq: 1
S: Session: 123456

I checked out RTSP's RFC: http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2326.txt , but I couldn't find out how to construct it. Note tht RTP's RFC (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1889.txt) has its header fields clear in section 5.1 ...any help on how to construct an RTSP message??

RTSP header would be almost identical to HTTP header - RFC 2616 ... The significant differences are covered early in RTSP RFC 2326 ...
RTSP URL would begin with rtsp:// instead of http:// ... methods would be those specified by RTSP rather than HTTP ...

There is no short-cut .. you would have to study the RFCs and gain an understanding of working of the protocols ...

Post back if you need any specific help with forming the header or need any further clarifications
