looks like it is quite minimalistic.

Well ffplay doesn't work with rtsp+tcp as is and dss is everything but a
standard rtsp server. So in short you have to take ffplay, improve the
current rtsp layer (adding some playout buffer) and live happy with it.

You may try to check if nemesi/libnemesi could be a relatively simpler
starting point (since it supports already rtp/rtsp over tcp), next month
I plan to add h264 support since our new server already supports h264.

http://streaming.polito.it if you want to know more.

(for completeness other frameworks with rtp-h264 capabilities: live555
release, gstreamer cvs)
