User authentication using HTTP streaming


The article “User Authentication” at explains how to use the Flash onConnect to do user authentication.

The above method is not triggered when doing HTML5 video streaming! So which method should I use for this… onStreamCreate?

Thanks in advance,


For HTTP Streaming, you need to use the onHTTP*StreamingSessionCreate methods.

You will be able to authenticate the session there and reject it if you need to.

Indeed, thank you.
