Hello Nitin,

If possible, can you share your build please?
What version(s) of library are you using. Have you tried using the
precompiled builds that are available on the link that I have mentioned.
Even those are failing at my end. Can you please download this and check if
the ffplay.exe is working fine for decoding h.264 based RTSP stream?
