rtsp password has a plus ('+') character

Post by ericson69 »


I am trying to record an RTSP stream from a camera. The rtsp auth password has a '+' character on it. FFMPEG fails to authenticate and returns a "401 Unauthorized".

Here's the command

Code: Select all

ffmpeg -i rtsp://username:[email protected]_address:554/axis-media/media.amp
I tried enclosing the url in quotes, but that didn't work either.
Is there a way to get ffmpeg to correctly use the password with the '+' character?
