RTMP streaming via a .m3u playlist format

Apr 3, 2011 10:41 PM

Hello,

 

I am new to this forum, and also the Strobe Media Player, so I apologize in advance if my question seems silly.  I am not new to web development, but have little experience with Adobe Flash or Strobe player.  I have all of my strobe files located on my streaming server, and I have run into what I am sure is, a minor bump in the road.  I understand that Strobe uses .m3u formatted playlists, and I am having a bit of difficulty getting mine to work.

 

I try to stream all of my videos via rtmp, for obvious reasons.

 

My swf is located at - http://strobe.mymcneillfamily.com.s3.amazonaws.com/StrobeMediaPlayback .swf

Same file - rtmp://sgq4ilxnnkru9.cloudfront.net/cfx/st/StrobeMediaPlayback.swf

 

My playlist at - http://strobe.mymcneillfamily.com.s3.amazonaws.com/movies.m3u

Same file - rtmp://sgq4ilxnnkru9.cloudfront.net/cfx/st/movies.m3u

 

My video files at - rtmp://sgq4ilxnnkru9.cloudfront.net/cfx/st/video/

 

One in particular - rtmp://sgq4ilxnnkru9.cloudfront.net/cfx/st/mp4:video/theboysoffall.mp 4

Or

http://strobe.mymcneillfamily.com.s3.amazonaws.com/video/theboysoffall .mp4

 

If I specify the http:// links in the playlist, the video is served, but not in the manner in which I would like it presented.  The only way to do so, is enter one individual rtmp url in the FlashVars src= instance using the configurator.

 

Whether using the playback configurator or just writing code, I cannot seem to get it to work the way I would like, which is for the movies to be served out via rtmp.  I've tried the "urlIncludesFMSApplicationInstance" variable with no luck as well.

 

I'm sure I am missing something trivial, so sorry ahead of time for that

 

Any takers on making me feel embarrassed??  No worries, I welcome it!

 

Thanks in advance for your time!

 

-Tim
