RTMP Dynamic Streaming Still Beneficial

Posted by Derrick on May 4, 2013 under Video Streaming and Compression | Comments are off for this article

RTMP Dynamic Streaming is still beneficial. Today there’s a lot of excitement about Adobe’s HTTP  Dynamic Streaming and for good reason.  However, the Flash player implementation to enable  (HDS) is more challenging and most will be confused on the set-up.  The server set-up is straightforward but playback for delivery is always most important.  With that being said, users can still use RTMP Dynamic Streaming since they’re wanting Flash Video Playback.  What’s great is that the Flash Player set-up for RTMP Dynamic Streaming is much easier if you’re familiar with Longtail’s JW Player. You can be up and running in no time.

Attend one of our Wowza Advanced Topics Training classes if you need assistance with the set-up.
