    RTMP streaming via a .m3u playlist format

    tmcneill71 Community Member

      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.mp4

      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!
