[FFmpeg-user] Can the rtmp stream published by Flash Media Encoder be read by ffmpeg?

FMLE can connect to any RTMP-enabled server; I'm not sure why you're having
problems with Red5 specifically. The most popular RTMP-enabled server by
far is Wowza Media Server
like Red5, it's Java based, but the Wowza community is excellent. I use
Wowza with most of my clients, and I built videoRx.com streaming on top of
Wowza. (I have a long history with Flash-based video; wrote the Flash
Bible, ActionScript Bible, and web video books.)

I'd recommend installing the latest developer version of Wowza (free).

        Actually, I did manage to get FMLE to connect to Red5... or at
least I didn't get any
errors. What I couldn't do was to to get ffmpeg to connect as a client (a
"viewer") to Red5 to
receive that stream.
        What happened when you tried it? In my case, FMLE connected and
without any errors, and Red5's logs seemed to indicate that it was
receiving the stream
correctly (...I think; I had a hard time understanding Red5's logs, mostly
because I didn't
understand how it worked internally).
