    MP4 and RTMPE

    _CarlosBernal_ Community Member



      I'm trying to play an mp4 file from flash lite but it only works when the file is placed locally. If I try to play it from a server that sends me files using a RTMPE protocol the file doesn't work. I tried to use a local HTTP protocol but it doesn't work either.


      I just use the flash video component and this code line:



      Does any one know what could be happening or what do I need to do in order to play the video?


      Thanks in advance,

          Hi Carlos,


          Using Flash's components is not recommended for mobile applications.


          You can create your own player by placing a Video object on stage, and few lines of code.


          For example:


          var connection_nc:NetConnection = new NetConnection();
          var stream_ns:NetStream = new NetStream(connection_nc);


          Where my_video is the video object on stage.


          Hope it helps,

            I don't want to be rude but this answer doesn't really help much. I have cricket balls website and I would like to incorporate a blog with MP4 videos but I am concerned about moblie devices and flash.

                Hi Carlos/mark,


                I hope you would help me by telling that are u people using standalone (air application) or browser based swf file to stream data on handset (having support if FlashLite 3.x)  using Flash Streaming Sever (wowza or any other)?


                Thanks in Advance
