qtdemo is just a an application that runs the different demo applications.
PyQt includes a Python port of the C++ qtdemo that comes with Qt. The
Python qtdemo runs the different Python examples that come with PyQt. Most,
but not all, of the C++ examples have been ported to Python.

The ability to read rtsp streams has nothing to do with qtdemo or PyQt. If
there is a C++ example that handles rtsp then it should be straightforward
to port it to Python.
