I hope to be in topic here. I have a problem with Quicktime Player
I'm developing a RTSP proxy, and I want to add support for proxy-level
user authentication. The RFC 2326 remands to the HTTP/1.1 mechanism
for both server and proxy-authentication.
For example when a Quicktime client sends a request without the
Proxy-Authorization header, the proxy will reply:
RTSP/1.0 401 ProxyAuthenticationRequired
Proxy-Authenticate: Basic realm="RtspProxy 127.0.0.1"
and then waits for a subsequent request with the right header, which would be:
DESCRIBE rtsp://localhost/sample.mp3 RTSP/1.0
Proxy-Authorization: Basic dXNlcjpwYXNzd29yZA==
but QuicktimePlayer just hang and does nothing..
Am I missing something? How this is supposed to work?
I'm working on OsX 10.4 and the RTSP proxy is set in the network
configuration panel, with proxy authentication enabled.
