The Roku box does not support rtsp. The box does support HLS and regular progressive download of h264 encoded mpeg4 files. Apache (or any web server that supports range requests) can server up the progressive download of mpeg4 files. It can also host HLS content, but you would need to add segmenting to your encoding process for HLS content.

The BrightScript interface is the only way to develop apps. Once the box is in developer mode (check the docs) You will telnet to port 8085. There is no need for any other I/O interfacing like serial port, etc...
