500: RTSP realplayer implementation

Not sure if this is the most applicable topic area….please advise if you think differently…..
I have tried to implement a very basic rtsp server that negotiates with the client realplayer ™ Win32 version 10.5. However, the video is not playing on the client side and I get the error message – “A general error has occurred”. I cannot figure out why this is. I have tried to stream different files (.mpg and .wmv). I know that the video file is sent across the network because the ethereal trace proves it (as seen below) but the client only has a black screen coming up but nothing is played. Any clues on why this maybe? I want to get it working on both UDP and TCP but I started on TCP first because the negotiations are simpler. I have used TCP socket to listen on a particular port. When I compare both the ethereal trace of a successful RTSP streaming session with one of my failed ones then I do notice that all my packets are TCP only and not RTSP(as it should be) even though exactly the same bytes are sent, is this causing the problem. If so then how can implement and interpret data in to RTSP packets???? I am using PHP and only TCP and UDP sockets are available i.e. they don’t understand the rtsp//: protocol.

Any inputs will be much appreciated.........

The trace is found below:

I know of no rtsp streaming server implementations in php, probably for a good reason. You should probably use something like http://developer.apple.com/opensource/server/streaming/index.html and use php to serve a link to the content.

i might be wrong ofcourse, but using php alone does not seem feasable.
