This was a mistake. I only tried it as far as to see
if mplayer could establish a connection with ffserver,
and at least try to receive data by using an rtsp://
URL. I followed this one up a little later with
another post.

I will be digging into this one more tomorrow. (It is
0252 EDT right now, and sleep-time).

I was more interested in seeing whether or not
ffserver actually answered up at all on such a
request, and what its response was, as opposed to
actually viewing a video, so I only tested as far as
to see if it would connect at all.   

I think the requester however does not want to use
ffserver, but ffmpeg directly to his DSS server, like


And someone to develop for this, for adaptive
bitrates, etc.
