Too many people on too narrow of a connection at work means that the tech crew has to keep tabs on who is using more than his or her fair share of bandwidth or they'll screw up the entire network for everyone.
Getting a grip on who is doing what is no problem -- we've got the full range of linux stuff available and the DD-WRT firmware on our main router. So, since DD-WRT uses plain old iptables, blocking people from streaming wouldn't be a problem either.
But it's kinda boring. Geez... I mean, we might as well wander over to their desks and tell them to knock it off.
We'd much rather replace the stream that someone is listening to with something else. Something better.
So, maybe you're listening to yahoo radio. Instead of the latest dance hits, you get our station of fart noises or something. (We'll think of something clever later.) Doing this with streaming MP3's is well within our abilities, but is such a thing possible with RTSP?
Does anyone know if RTSP can be redirected with location headers just like a web browser Is there something simple we can do to deploy a RTSP that serves up the same wildcarded content, regardless of what page/stream is requested?
Can this be done?
