Flash  Player and proxy settings

Mar 12, 2012 12:49 AM

Tags: #flash #rtmp #proxy #fallback



all clients our company must use a web-proxy to connect with the internet.

If anyone want to watch a stream with rtmp://....swf , nothing happens.

RTMP should work with port 1935 and fallback to 443, 80.


Problem: shockwave/flash ignores the proxy settings from browser and Device. He tries to connect

directly without proxy, whitch is not working of course..


Are there any options to configure the proxy settings for Shockwave or is this a bug?


Thanks for any help!

    Here is a short discussion about the subject from two years ago:


    Hopefully someone from the Flash Player team can shed more light on your question.

    There's no way for the player to route plain RTMP traffic through the browser proxy. By default, RTMP traffic is sent through port 1935, but browser proxies won't re-route non-HTTP traffic. This is is what the RTMPT variant does, it's traffic is routed over HTTP, and so the browser has the opportunity to route it through a proxy.


    Hope this helps,
