Real Time Streaming Protocol

The RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) is a client-server application-level protocol for controlling the delivery of data with real-time properties. It establishes and controls either a single or several time-synchronized streams of continuous media, such as audio and video. It uses transport protocols such as UDP, multicast UDP, TCP, and RTP to deliver the continuous streams. In other words, RTSP acts as a network remote control for multimedia servers. Sources of data can include both live data feeds and stored clips.
