    Default Problem playing multi bitrate streams with RTMP

    Hi,
    I'm having a problem playing multi bitrate streams with RTMP. Does is require a special configuration?
    I can play each stream individually but when I try to send all streams I get:
    "Failed to play XXX; stream not found"
    It does work for http.
    Am I missing something?

    Thanks,
    Michal

    Michal,

    Use RTMP Dynamic Streaming in Flash. The server-side .smil wont work. JW Player has an easy to use implementation:

    Hi Richard,
    sorry but I'm a bit confused. I'm using my own player, that uses OSMF library. I pass an .f4m file with my streams to osmf and it handles the play. Is there a special integration that should be made between OSMF and Wowza multi bitrate streams?
    Thank you,
    Michal

    Hi Michal,

    Yes, it requires special configuration. If you look at the tutorials, for example: http://www.wowza.com/forums/content....AddOn-Overview

    In the Adaptive Bitrate Streaming section you'll see: "Dynamic Streaming to the Flash player requires a fair amount of work on the client-side. These articles cover the details of how to achieve dynamic streaming in Flash:" And then there are several resources listed.

    As Richard said, the JWPlayer implementation is easier.

    Hi randall, thanks for the answer and sorry for my late response.
    I forgot to mention an important point - when working with FMS, everything works fine, my problem is only when integrating with Wowza. The links you provided explain how to integrate with FMS, so they don't answer my problem. As I said, I'm using OSMF 1.0 and it handles the net streams for my player.
    Should there be a difference in the client side when working with FMS or Wowza? is there anything else I missed?
    Thanks!

    Hi Michal,

    You'll have to provide more detail. What have you tried. Which tutorials you've followed. What works, doesn't work. Exact URIs you are using, etc...

    You're saying Flash HTTP multi-bitrate works, but RTMP does not?
