    Streaming and Decoding RTSP

    I am working in C and would like to find a open source library(non-GPL licensed) that could stream from RTSP and grab individual full image frames from the stream.

    Anyone have any experience in this area?

    you'll need to know what codec was used to encode the video, and then you'll need a decoder for that video format. x264 is a relatively common GPL h.264 (one of the more common streaming formats) codec. I'd look at that and see where it gets you.

    I believe GStreamer can do this - just search "GStreamer RTSP" and you should come up with a few examples. GStreamer is quite complicated, but it is very powerful.
