An asyncio-based RTSP library

Project description

This is a very simple asyncio library for interacting with an RTSP server, with basic RTP/RTCP support.

The intended use case is to provide a pretty low level control of what happens at RTSP connection level, all in python/asyncio.

This library does not provide any decoding capability, it is up to the client to decide what to do with received RTP packets.

One could easily decode using OpenCV or PyAV, or not at all depending on the intended use.

See examples for how to use the lib internals, butfor quick usage:

import asyncio
from airtsp.rtsp.reader import RTPReader

async def main():
    # Open a reader (which means RTSP connection, then media session)
    async with RTPReader('rtsp://cam/video.sdp') as reader:
        # Iterate on RTP packets
        async for pkt: RTP in reader.iter_packets():
            print('PKT', pkt.seq,, len(pkt)
