I checked, and http tuneling works fine in vlc 1.2 with the asynchronous
However it doesn't work in vlc 1.1.x with the old synchronous interface.
And in both case, I have garbage in the response of GET_PARAMETER (see

Then I tested an old version of live555 with vlc 1.1.11, and then the
http tuneling works fine. The garbage in the response also disappeared

So there seem to be a regression with http tuneling + synchronous
And there is a regression in http tuneling and response to GET_PARAMETER
These two regressions are not related because the garbage in the
GET_PARAMETER answer is also here with the asynchronous interface which
works in http mode.
Your server sends a correct answer (begining with RTSP/1.0 200 OK) but
the library fails when reading this answer and add garbage :
