Hi guys,

I am using the FFMPEG API to implement a RTSP stream reader and I have a 

If I try to connect to a stream wchich is unavailable the program is 
freezing (it try to connect forever without any massage or possibility 
to handle this)

The function I am using is avformat_open_input(&pFormatCtx, filename, 

Do you know if there is a way to handle this problem? Or any other API 
which allows to handle it?
