    Default Flowplayer 5 RTMP streaming


    Solution for having Wowza RTMP streaming working with flowplayer 5.

    Flowplayer 5 supports HTML5 mode for playing the videos, I was having trouble streaming videos from Wowza, this solution worked for me. We have Wowza 3.5.2 and Flowplayer 5.4.3 installed.

    Configure your wowza system. I have installed Video on Demand streaming which is the only requirement in our project (no live streaming). Your HTML code must be like this to support rtmp streaming -

    <div class="flowplayer" data-engine="flash" data-swf="flowplayer.swf" data-key="xxxxxx" data-rtmp="rtmp://{wowza server}/vod/_definst_">
             <source type="rtmp/mp4" src="mp4:{path to your video}" />
    I have used "_definst_" after my application name "vod", this is required when you want to stream videos from the sub folders.

    FYI, your 'data-engine="flash"' line forces Flowplayer to use the Flash engine to handle the video.

    This is oftentimes fine, but does require Adobe Flash to be installed on the devices playing it.

    It works without 'data-engine="flash"' line too.

    Are you able to view a live RTMP stream with Flowplayer 5 ? I tried all kinds of configurations, but it doesn't seem to work.
