RTMP streaming via a .m3u playlist format

Apr 3, 2011 10:41 PM



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 - .swf

Same file - rtmp://


My playlist at -

Same file - rtmp://


My video files at - rtmp://


One in particular - rtmp:// 4

Or .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!
