CURLOPT_RTSP_STREAM_URI(3) Library Functions Manual CURLOPT_RTSP_STREAM_URI(3)

CURLOPT_RTSP_STREAM_URI - RTSP stream URI

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

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 defaults 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.

"*"

RTSP

int main(void)
{
  CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
  if(curl) {
    CURLcode res;
    curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "rtsp://example.com/");
    curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_RTSP_STREAM_URI,
                     "rtsp://foo.example.com/twister/video");
    res = curl_easy_perform(curl);
    curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
  }
}

Added in 7.20.0

Returns CURLE_OK if the option is supported, CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not, or CURLE_OUT_OF_MEMORY if there was insufficient heap space.
