Better protocol than RTSP?

So right now everybody seems to be using RTSP, but the protocol is unencrypted, including the credentials if used. I am aware of SRTP but the plugin for gstreamer is in the “bad” category.

Does anybody know of a good, secure, protocol, well supported by gstreamer, to send video from point A to point B without some random malicious actor in the middle being able to, you know, intercept credentials, mess with the stream, etc?

Edit: it appears gst’s rtspsrc supports tls now. Hopefully the smart cities of the future use it.

Hi mdegans,

Yes, we are actively looking at this and other protocols and methods for our next releases.

Thanks
