    Cannot get AMS5 to multicast a stream from a Vbrick 9000 encoder

    todlarson

      I have a vbrick 9000 series encoder transmitting an RTMP stream to Adobe Media Server 5's multicast service.  It appears that AMS5 starts the multicast but then stops the multicast.   The AMS tool Multicastplayer just says "Waiting for Video..."

       

      How do I configure the 9000 encoder and the AMS5 to allow multicast to work?

       

      Thanks in advance!

       

      vbrick 9000 transmitter configs for multicast

      - Transport type: RMPT

      - ip address: ams server IP

      - Destination Port: 1935

      -RTMP Application: multicast

      -RTMP Stream: livestreamTest1?fms.mulicast.type=2&fms.multicast.groupspec=G%xxxxxxx&fms.multicast.addre ss=239.135.x.x&3A4444

      -RTMP Username: <blank>  <-- I don't see where there is a "username".  There is no username in the configurator tool.

      -RTMP Password: broadcast  <-- This matches whas I used in the multicast configurator tool.

      For what it's worth.  I can make unicast flash work fine with these settings...
