Are there any plans to add a client authentication dialog - asking for a
user name and password - whenever a VLC user tries to play an
access-controlled stream (either HTTP or RTSP)?
Note that the LIVE.COM library already supports RTSP access control, using
digest authentication. It just needs a way for the GUI to give it a user
name and password. (It is already possible to play access-controlled RTSP
streams by using an URL of the form
"rtsp://<username>:<password>@host/file", but this causes the password to
get sent over the net in the clear.)
