So what's going on with thise RTSP stream? The RTSP stream is the only one now working. The MMS stream is dead. The RTSP URL is rtsp:// and typing that exactly (specifying no port number) works in this stream player app for Android called Stream Player. However it does not work in VLC player or ffplay.exe (the player component of FFMPEG). I tried manually specifying the port number 554 (the default for RTSP protocol) but that didn't work in VLC or FFPLAY. I also tried the official alternate RTSP port number which is 8554, but it also didn't work in either of those players. I tried manually specifying port 554 in Stream Player for Android, and it worked perfectly. So I know the port number 554 is correct.

So here I have a very much non-standard player (Stream Player) working perfectly, while the more common software VLC and FFPLAY utterly fail to play this stream. What's going on?
I had never heard of a RSTP stream before.  So I tried it in the VLC player, and it is working for me, streaming KCTV North Korea. Also the MMS stream is working for my VLC player, too. Both links currently streaming the same KCTV broadcast. I don't know anything about those port numbers, I just opened my VLC player, clicked media > open network stream, and pasted the MMS link or the RSTP link and they both play fine.
WMP no longer supports MMS streaming so I need to use the VLC now.

Finally figured out what was wrong. My router's firewall was blocking the connection. Don't know why it worked from my cellphone (with that one app called Stream Player), as it's also on my wireless router. Must have something to do with the way it tried to connect or something. Whatever the case, I don't want to have to disable the firewall, just to watch NKorean TV.
