I apologize for asking what's probably a pretty basic question. I've worked through a couple of the tutorials and I've made it part way to my goal. However, I've getting hung up some of the jargon and/or architecture understanding. I've just begun to explore the wonders of video stream so I ask for your patience.
My end goal is to have the ability to do a high quality point-to-point stream. But for now, I'm just trying to get a basic stream setup. Like I said, I've worked through the tutorials the best I could. I'm using Adobe Flash Live Encoder 3.2. It's pulling in a live feed via a BlackMagic card. I have Wowza server running (via "Wowza Startup" in the start menu). FMLE seems to be communicating well with Wowza. I can run the test app LiveVideoStreaming and it's showing the video correctly. So I've made it that far. This is all on a single Windows 7 machine, BTW.
What I'm trying to do now is connect to that stream from another computer on the local network (a Mac). I have been unable to get that to work. I also cannot get the stream to work on an iOS device also connected to the local network.
Flash player cannot see the stream.
Safari gives an error (when connecting to rtmp://192.168.1.148:1935/live/myStream/manifest.f4m"):

So I think I'm close to getting past this part of the test.
Next I will be asking for advice on what to do next to setup the best point to point stream possible. Is there a particular forum for basic questions like this? I didn't see a dunce corner anywhere. :-)
Thanks for your help.
