Apple's QuickTime (version 4.1 or later) to be installed.
You can download

latest version of QuickTime provides new streaming capabilities
for users. In addition to streaming using RTSP/RTP standards-based

are designed to protect corporate information, but they
can also prevent you from viewing live QuickTime streams.
This is because firewalls are frequently configured
to block data protocols that QuickTime uses for streaming.
to set up QuickTime for streaming
QuickTime 4.1 & later is designed to automatically
configure your streaming connection the first time you
try to play a streaming movie. If you are having trouble
with streaming or have moved your machine from one network
to another then you may want to manually configure your
QuickTime streaming network settings to establish the
best streaming connection possible.
Open the QuickTime Settings control panel.
Choose Streaming Transport from the pop-up.
Click Auto Configure. If QuickTime is able to establish
a connection you will see a dialog: "The network
connection has been successfully configured".
QuickTime is unable to establish a connection you
will see a dialog: "The network connection could
not be established". If
QuickTime successfully configured your connection,
If QuickTime could not configure your connection, then
continue to step 4.
If your firewall is blocking direct network access,
then you will need to use a proxy server. You can
tell QuickTime about your proxy servers by opening
the Streaming Proxy dialog from the QuickTime Settings
Check the Use System Settings check box to use the
system settings you have already established with
your web browser. If you uncheck this box, you may
enter the name and port ID of any of your proxy servers.You
will need to get this information from your system
After selecting a proxy server, you will need to manually
set the correct transport in the Streaming Transport
If you are using a SOCKS proxy server, you should first
try setting "Use UDP, RTSP port 554." If that doesnt
work, try setting "Use HTTP, port 80".
If you are using an RTSP proxy server, you should set
the Streaming Transport to "Use UDP, RTSP port 554."
If you are using an HTTP proxy server, you need to set
the Streaming Transport to "Use HTTP, port 80."
Network Address Translation (NAT) Server Users
If you have a home or small business network in which
several computers are connected to the Internet through
an ISDN, ADSL, cable modem, or other high speed connection,
you may run into problems accessing QuickTime movies
streamed with the RTP/RTSP protocol.
If your access device performs network address translation,
allowing multiple computers at your site to share a
single IP address, then you will either need that router
to understand RTSP or you will have to use HTTP as a
Recommendations for Firewall Administrators
QuickTime follows the conventions of the RTP and RTSP
Internet standards to stream media over the web. To
enable QuickTime 4.1 to work properly inside your firewall,
please follow the following IETF recommendation:
port 554 for RTSP/TCP data.
ports 6970 through 6999 (inclusive) for RTP/UDP data.
