The newest release of W3C's Jigsaw server contains a prototype 
implementation of RTSP. This is a "http-like" protocol that allows to 
realize Audio/Video-on-Demand applications. It's still a draft, but
will probably become an RFC soon. RTSP only takes care of the signalling,
RTP is used for the transport of audio/video data. Jigsaw uses helper
applications for both on the client *and* the server side to handle

The RTSP system implemented in Java, and has been tested on Unix boxes - 
making a Windows version may require some twisting, but not too much.

You can get Jigsaw from


More info on RTSP is available at


Caveat: The RTSP implementation has to be brought up to date to the
latest version of the RTSP draft.

Hope this helps
