- Before you call play on the edge server in your client-side code, use NetConnection.call() to call FCSubscribe and pass in the name of each individual stream included in the multiple-bitrate presentation:
nc.call("FCSubscribe", null, "live_1"); nc.call("FCSubscribe", null, "live_2"); nc.call("FCSubscribe", null, "live_3");
Note: This is built-in to JW Player by setting the Flashvar rtmp.subscribe=true. See the JW Player Dynamic RTMP Streaming tutorial.
- On the origin server, add the sendOriginalTimecodes property to the <Streams>/<Properties> container in the [install-dir]/conf/[application]/Application.xml file (be sure to put the property in the correct <Properties> container as there are several in the Application.xml file):
<Property> <Name>sendOriginalTimecodes</Name> <Value>true</Value> <Type>Boolean</Type> </Property>
- You must either use .stream files to point to the origin streams or use the Stream Name Alias AddOn package (using stream aliases, not play aliases) to turn a simple stream name into the full RTMP URL to the origin RTMP stream. For example, with streams myStream_1 and myStream_2 that are hosted at the RTMP URL rtmp://192.168.1.7/live, create the following files:
Then use stream names myStream_1.stream and myStream_2.stream.
