This is a DirectShow audio / video capture source filter allowing capturing audio / video over RTSP protocol from RTSP software and hardware servers and IP cameras. This filter receives and outputs H.264 / MPEG4 video and AAC / G.711 audio with no transcoding or decoding. The filter needs to be initialized with RTSP URL via IFileSourceFilter COM interface or via Property page. Use this filter in your own applications or in Unreal Live Server for transcoding MPEG4, G.711 content from legacy IP Cameras to H.264, AAC content for delivery to Flash / HLS viewers.
