I would like to use either the FMS URL (i.e. rtmp://server/application/) or the stream name as a method of authentication.
Is it possible to restrict to an application (e.g. livepkgr) based on the FMS URL or the stream name entered in the encoder? This seems to be the method used by YouTube. If not, can the username and password for a stream be saved in a profile.xml file for use by the encoder?
im not sure, but i do know you can use the rtmp://USER:PASSWORD@hostname/live/livestream works (replace USER and PASSWORD)
You can write your own auth or access plugin to do any authentication whatsoever...A sample auth plugin code is shipped as part of Adobe media server installation
e.g C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Media Server 5\samples\plugins\auth
I have tried this, but it doesn't work.
