Actually I found this interesting thread:
So, please someone tell me if I'm wrong but it seems it is up to the
browser to support (or not) the various media containers/codecs.
I think the unsupported-rtsp.html test is a consequence of
And in the media player code of the mac port I see it is indeed disabled
"for now" by checking the uri scheme.
So, since GStreamer supports rtsp/rtp (granted that the plugins are
available) I see no reason why the WebKitGTK+ media player wouldn't
support it as well ;)

I know there is support for static file (http://url/file.ogg) playback in browsers with HTML5 support but what can we also play live stream-based source? like ustream.tv (provided the source supports non-flash streaming)
