Hello everyone,


I've installed FMS4.5 on a CentOS server with Appache and both servers works fine.


I'm trying to set it up for live streaming and I've followed the simple step by step instructions provided by Adobe.


I can push my stream on to the server as a multiple bitrates 100-200 and 350 k everything works fine.

I can see teh 3 streams being created in /opt/adobe/fms/applications/livepkgr/events/_definst_/liveevent


but when I tried to access the 4m


I get an empty manifest:


<manifest xmlns="">







My Event.xml looks good:











And here is my Manifest.xml


<manifest xmlns="">

  <media streamId="livestream1" bitrate="100" />

  <media streamId="livestream2" bitrate="200" />

  <media streamId="livestream3" bitrate="350" />



Any help is very very welcome

    For multi-bitrate streaming, Flash and AIR media players request an F4M manifest file that contains the location and bitrate of each live stream. This type of F4M file is called a set-level manifest. In your case the set-level manifest is the Manifest.xml. When you access a stream via the stream name the manifest file is generated by FMS. To use the manifest file specified in the event access the streams via the event name as so : 4m.


    Hope this helps.
