CURLOPT_RTSP_SESSION_ID(3) Library Functions Manual CURLOPT_RTSP_SESSION_ID(3)

CURLOPT_RTSP_SESSION_ID - RTSP session ID

#include <curl/curl.h>
CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_RTSP_SESSION_ID, char *id);

Pass a char pointer as a parameter to set the value of the current RTSP Session ID for the handle. Useful for resuming an in-progress session. Once this value is set to any non-NULL value, libcurl returns CURLE_RTSP_SESSION_ERROR if ID received from the server does not match. If unset (or set to NULL), libcurl automatically sets the ID the first time the server sets it in a response.

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

    curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_RTSP_SESSION_ID, prev_id);
    res = curl_easy_perform(curl);
    curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
  }
