could you help me please.Does flash media server 4 support dynamic streaming , i mean choosing video with right bit rate on the server side automaticly ? or do i have to implement this on the client side , switching streams with DynamicStream like shown here : http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flashmediaserver/articles/dynstream_advanc ed_pt1.html
*sorry for mistakes
thanks in advance
FMS would be able to serve video of the appropriate bit rate suiting a client's bandwidth only after the server gets to know the current BW conditions under which the client is operating. Hence we would need to build a client which uses the capabilities of flash player to check the bandwidth conditions and quality of service and inform the server what bit rate video it would need. So yes you would need to write the client to use the dynamic streaming capabilities.
There is also a ready sample player at http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flashmediaserver/articles/live_dynstream_d vr.html . You could customize it as per your needs too or use it as it is.
It is really simple to use. Do let me know if you need any help in using the client.
You seem knowledgeable with the Flash Media Server.
I'm using the Flash Media Server's Native Bandwidth Detection to automatically dish up the best video the user's bandwidth will support.
My confusion right now lies in the results that the test provides.
My Flash Media Server consistently reports speeds of only 14,000 kbps , while speed tests on other online bandwidth tests like Speakeasy and CNet show speed results between 40,000 and 70,000 kbps.
Is the Flash Media Server using an entirely different algorhithm? It's difficult to discuss minimum project requirements with a client when Flash's test results differer so greatly from the rest of the world.
Any meaningful insights you can provide?
