The 404 errors look like a client trying to communicate using the socket-io 1.0 protocol. RCStream (at the moment) uses the more widespread socket-io 0.9 protocol. See T68232. If using a popular library, you may have to install an older version of it. Or use an alternate built-in (e.g. one of the php libraries out there ships a Version1 and Version09 client class).

I can confirm that. The entry on pypi mentions that the latest version (0.6.1 as of this comment) supports socket.io 1.0. I installed 0.5.5 and I don't get the 404 error.

This is a pretty high risk for Python apps. v0.5.5 was released Feb 17 , and we're stuck on that version.
Since then there have been fixes , and we cant update the library to get those or future fixes.

Since we have whole server (that means 1 dedicated public IP) for this service, why not just running a newer version on a different port so that it still works with software that already use it?

I'm closing this task and T68232 since it's unlikely this will happen. Rather than upgrading RCSteam to Socket.IO v1.0 (which would be a breaking change for existing RCStream consumers), I'll instead help push forward T130651: EventStreams.
