I think so (e.g., the example in section 14.1 in the RTSP
specification). However, I don't think I've ever seen such a stream
(where the server expects the client to issue RTSP "SETUP" and "PLAY"
commands, without having first done a "DESCRIBE"), and the LIVE555
library doesn't currently support this anyway (because it currently
sets up a connection to a RTSP server only when doing a "DESCRIBE").
>What if the SDP contains a UDP source
Remember that the data delivery protocol (RTP/UDP or raw UDP) is
independent of the control protocol (RTSP). RTSP authentication - if
any - is done the same way, regardless of which data delivery
protocol ends up getting used.
