Let's consider a usual case,
when the both peers have not own internet IP addresses.
They are behind the internet service provider's NAT.
I saw the following thread below:Periodically connection problem p2p
But I can't make the main conclusion.
How often Stratus does not work?
In my case it does not work in 95-99% cases.
Neither do I.
Would it be a security policy matter?
I cared about uploading a crossdomain.xml file to my server, but did not help.
Or should you have a static ip adress for stratus to work over the web?
Dou you think we are ever gonna get some help here??
Static IP address is not an interesting thing for chats,
where most of users are behind the NAT.
i think the answer to a similar thread that i just posted is likely applicable here. the short version is "certain combinations of certain kinds of NAT can make end-to-end communication impossible."
Hi there. I have the same problem. I wrote a http://vc.tut.ua - videochat that relies on direct connected RTMFP channels, and I see that percentage of connections other than local - is very low (later, may be I can get exact number). The only bypass of this problem I see - use central server RTMP connections, when RTMFP - is unavailable.
But my question is - is there any chance to improve RTMFP - related technologies in the future, to resolve such problems, because some apps (Skype for ex.) are avoid them...
