Don't edit the media after streaming, edit the raw media from the camera before it's streamed.
Thanks for the response.
That actually doesn't help me though. As I said, we do LIVE streaming. Our LIVE stream works GREAT with h.264, the problem comes after our live event is finished and we have an f4v file that seems to be useless to us. We need to be able to do some minor post production work, but regardless, we can't even get the f4v videos to play in any of our players which is baffeling me.
So, in addition to sending the camera's feed out to the streaming hardware, also record it so you can edit it later.
This is the best way to go here.
@Jim Unfortuntaley, it's not practical for us to encode two files, one streaming and one capturing in a different format.
I do appreciate the help though.
@John That program looks cool, however that doesn't help either because we stream LIVE video. So I need to be encoding through FMLE or WME if I'm doing a windows file.
I actually had some progress using the adobe f4v post processor. I was able to convert the file into another f4v file that was able to import into Premiere. However, once I import it, I get no audio on my file. When I play the file, there is audio, but again when I import it into Premiere, no audio at all.
This seems to be a common problem and a potential bug. But if anyone has any further input, im VERY close to having success if I can only get my audio in there. (I do know I could get the audio into premiere by itself, but I'm trying to create a workflow that I can bring to my boss. He won't be a big fan of having many steps to get everything into Adobe)

Well, since the camera itself is also likely a very capable recorder, it seems quite simple to record in camera and send the video out for streaming. I've done this on many occasions.
(Also, John's recommendation was to use OnLocation to record a file you can edit. You'd still take the video feed out of the camera for the streaming.)
Without any knowledge or information supplied about your camera, workflow, end use, ...why not dual record to an external recorder..such as..
Atomos Ninja or Samurai
Aja Pro Mini
How live is "live" anyway...
"live" is direct from camera to enduser realtime.
@Jim - should have mentioned, we use robotic cameras. We back up onto a DVD recorder, but capturing that onto our editing machine creates a rather time consuming work-flow
@shooter - I'm taking a look at those suggestions now. We haven't been able to find a solution by going that route but I'm going to take a look.
Live is live haha. Yes I mean direct to camera to end user in real time, we stream live video....as it happens.
Bryan, i have the same problem that you have. I use the Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder and results a f4v file that its not supported on Premiere. Seems strange to me an Adobe video don't work with another Adobe Program but....
Here i use the Leawo video converter to convert videos to any other format. Works fine to me. I recommend you try it.
