Cannot run rtsp url

Two editions of 72.0.02 running on W10 platforms. Desktop runs VLC fine for rtsp urls. Laptop does not. I have added network.protocol--handler.expose.rtsp (false) AND 'Open in VLC' but neither have helped. Message returns Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (rtsp) isn’t associated with any program or is not allowed in this context.

OK! Sorted it after much blood, sweat and tears. FF on the laptop was not prompting for an 'open' with action and rtsp was not listed under 'applications'. Desktop had all those.

I hacked the laptop administator registry and added the necessary. Next run of FF it asked for the 'open' with as it should and I was off!
