I use ffmpeg to read RTSP stream from a network video recorder.
During the playing of an the stream the keep-alive ( RTSP command
OPTION or GET_PARAMETER)  are send correctly.

But if I pause the stream with av_read_pause, the RTSP command PAUSE
is sent correctly but then the keep-alive is not send anymore. So the
the server close the connection (about 1 minute after the pause) and
when I send av_read_play to restart the stream again the session is

Is it normal that the GET_PARAMETER are not sent during pause ?  It
seems that the GET_PARAMETER is sent by rtsp_read_packet call from

Is there a way to send directly RTSP command to allow me to send
keepalive during the pause ?
