A FYI, for those of you who haven't been keeping 
track of recent LIVE555 developments: The RTSP 
client implementation underwent a major upgrade, 
starting with revision 2010.05.29.  We now 
support asynchronous (i.e., non-blocking) RTSP 
client commands.  This will significantly improve 
RTSP client support in future versions of VLC 
(and other applications), allowing RTSP commands 
to take place without blocking other, concurrent 
activities.  (However, for backwards 
compatibility, the old synchronous RTSP client 
API is still available (and is implemented using 
the new asynchronous API), so VLC's "live555.cpp" 
interface code need not change right away.)

As Sébastien noted, we have been shaking out some 
bugs with this new RTSP client implementation; 
however the latest version (2010.06.22) appears 
quite stable.
