Judging from responses on the internet like https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsdesktop/en-US/4ac87f5f-b8c5-471a-a424-55c0fff04eac/using-the-media-foundation-sdk-to-parse-rtsp-streams?forum=mediafoundationdevelopment I have the impression that the Media Foundation in Windows does not support h264 payloads in RTSP. Not sure there's much we can do on the Qt side about that :)

Subject: [Development] RTSP H264 under Windows


We are trying to display an RTSP stream under Windows.
For the video encoding, h264 is used.
On the GUI side we are using the QML MediaPlayer component.

Unfortunately, we don't see any video output nor do we get any error.
VLC is able to playback the stream on the same machine.

Should this work? Is h264 over RTSP supported under Windows?
