Run examples/test-readme, and try to connect to it with:

gst-launch-1.0 rtspsrc location=rtsp:// ! rtph264depay ! avdec_h264 ! xvimagesink sync=false

The output is:

This used to work; git-bisect points at d4b8a8249c1826c1074bcd5b12973d442057a94b (client: append query string in PAUSE/PLAY/TEARDOWN as well).

The problem seems to be that handle_setup_request() passes the truncated path to gst_rtsp_session_manage_media(), but handle_play_request() uses the full path for gst_rtsp_session_get_media().

It was actually a bug in rtspsrc that didn't use the correct base url for the aggregate control. fixed in -good:

    rtspsrc: use aggregate control for PLAY/PAUSE/TEARDOWN
    Use the aggregate control instead of the original request url to perform
