[Libav-user] RTP/RTSP support in FFMPEG

My experience with ffmpeg is that its RTP parsing has problems in UDP
mode, especially with live IP cameras. In TCP mode it works fine, but
RTP was really designed around UDP and that's the way it should be
used in most cases. I'm currently working on trying to fix it, but I
haven't had much luck so far.

Now I would like to play multimedia files from RTSP server. Please let me know if FFMPEG has support for acting as RTSP client and it's robust enough. How can I start using ffmpeg as RTSP client. How is it compared with the support available in CURL? Does FFMPEG have a better support compared to CURL? Please elaborate.
