Can't view deepstream rtsp stream from vlc

• Hardware Platform (Jetson / GPU): Tesla T4
• DeepStream Version: 5.1
• TensorRT Version: 7.2.1
• NVIDIA GPU Driver Version (valid for GPU only): 455.32
• Issue Type( questions, new requirements, bugs): Bug

Normally, when i run deepstream-app I have no issue viewing rtsp stream with vlc. But recently there is some changes in the server’s network and I can not view the rtsp stream anymore.

My config (The app run perfectly)

I tried to debug the application and here is the output log when vlc connect to the stream:

There should be [tiled-display] group and [primary-gie] group in your config file. If you don’t need inference, deepstream is not the proper SDK.

Thanks for the reply, in fact, i have an pipeline that use inference, run normally too. the only problem is the rtsp output couldn’t be viewed by vlc.
This is just an simple config file to check whether i can view any deepstream rtsp output with vlc. I tried this config on other servers with the same platform, deepstream and driver version and have no problem with viewing the output. But for this server, this error showed up

Do u have any suggestion for this kind of error? Thanks a lot

Please check the network problem.

This is not deepstream issue.

Thanks, the issue is indeed related to the server’s network. The solution is simply running deepstream docker and expose the necessary ports.
