By sending e.g. an HTTP request with method POST to a certain URL.

Look at ffmpeg's http input protocol: It too can listen for a client's
http connection. That client sends HTTP "without it being requested".

Who ever user in this thread? It might work if you use ffmpeg's
"-listen 1" option, then telling to listen on all interfaces.

But that deviates from the question. I believe Glenn wishes to send
MPEG-TS over RTSP, but RTSP shall be tunneled in HTTP.

I thought the option "-rtsp_transport http" is meant for that, but
ffmpeg tells me:
[rtsp @ 0xacc0780] Unsupported lower transport method, only UDP and TCP are supported for output.

So I guess *sending* RTSP over HTTP is not implemented.
