 There is the "rc" (remote control) interface which reads commands from
 a console and outputs messages (including debug messages, warnings,
 errors) and results. You can script around it, but it's not a fixed
   In a similar way, there is some Python code by Asmax providing
 (some?) RTSP support, you might want to look at that to implement your
 own protocol or use a standard protocol that suits your needs.

 I guess a "networked interface" would be preferable to the above, but
 it depends of your needs.
