LIVE555 Streaming Media is a set of open source (LGPL) C++ libraries for multimedia streaming.[1] The libraries support open standards such as RTP/RTCP and RTSP for streaming, and can also manage video formats such as H.264, MPEG, VP8, and DV, and audio formats such as MPEG, AMR, AC-3 and Vorbis. It is designed in such a way that it can be easily extended to support more formats.

Its RTSP/RTP/RTCP client implementation is used by VLC media player and MPlayer.
