  • sap-timeout <integer> : Delay after which SAP items get deleted if no new announcement is received default value: 1800
  • sap-parse <boolean> : This enables actual parsing of the announces by the SAP module. Otherwise, all announcements are parsed by the "live555" (RTP/RTSP) module default value: enabled
