What is RTMPT?

RTMPT (HTTP Tunneling) is a version of RTMP (Real Time Messaging Protocol) that is encapsulated within HTTP requests. This allows RTMPT packets to traverse firewalls. RTMPT often uses cleartext requests on TCP ports 80 and 443; this allows it to bypass most corporate traffic filtering. Such an encapsulated session can pass RTMP, RTMPS, or RTMPE packets within the HTTP tunnel.
