    Default FFmpeg and RTMP authentication

    The FFmpeg documentation suggests this syntax:

    rtmp://[username:password@]server[:port][/app][/instance][/playpath]
    However, this will give you an "Problem accessing the DNS." error when trying to connect to the Wowza server.

    In this thread it is suggested to use Wowza SecureURLParams instead of RTMP authentication, when streaming from FFmpeg.

    Is it still not possible to use FFmpeg with RTMP authentication?

    Hi,
    SecureURLParams is the only way that works currently
    with FFMPEG.

    For what is worth, it DOES work on Linux. In Windows appears that the URL parsing scheme is not the same and it's not working.

    Hi,
    The following will actually work in windows without the need for secureURLparams:

     -f flv "rtmp://serveraddress[:port][/app][/streamname] flashver=FMLE/3.0\20(compatible;\20FMSc/1.0) live=true pubUser=myuser pubPasswd=mypassword"
