NAME

CURLOPT_RTSP_STREAM_URI - set RTSP stream URI  

SYNOPSIS

#include <curl/curl.h>

CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_RTSP_STREAM_URI, char *URI);  

DESCRIPTION

Set the stream URI to operate on by passing a char * . For example, a single session may be controlling rtsp://foo/twister/audio and rtsp://foo/twister/video and the application can switch to the appropriate stream using this option. If unset, libcurl will default to operating on generic server options by passing '*' in the place of the RTSP Stream URI. This option is distinct from CURLOPT_URL(3). When working with RTSP, the CURLOPT_RTSP_STREAM_URI(3) indicates what URL to send to the server in the request header while the CURLOPT_URL(3) indicates where to make the connection to. (e.g. the CURLOPT_URL(3) for the above examples might be set to rtsp://foo/twister

The application does not have to keep the string around after setting this option.  

DEFAULT

'*'
