We don't recommend using the "flv:" prefix in RTMP URLs, that's not (AFAIK) a common convention.
Ah, that makes sense. In that case, though, shouldn't there be a more explicit issue somewhere? That way if one does use the "flv:" prefix, the issue comes up in a more apparent place? As is, the issue manifested in the onPlayStatus function of the DynamicNetStream, but playing the streams still worked 100%.
I guess we could go one of two ways:
1) Even though "flv:" is not a recommended practice, modify OSMF to support it.
2) Somehow signal to developers that they're doing the wrong thing when they specify "flv:", and possibly even prevent it.
#1 may be a fair amount of work. I'm not exactly sure how we would accomplish #2, as there may be some obscure case where a developer wants/needs to include the prefix. Any thoughts?
Is there a reason why "flv:" isn't a recommented practice? If there isn't really a convincing reason, it seems that #1 may be the best way to go about it, though it would likely be quite a bit of work.
