[rtmpdump] Help getting stream parameters.

It seems that in your first rtmpsuck, http://pastebin.com/yXPG3fXt,
you were connecting to an 'ondemand' stream. This points out that you
weren't capturing data for the right stream. If you look in the iView
API2, the client fetches
which if you look inside has a different RTMP server. (for me it's
rtmp://cp81899.live.edgefcs.net/live/news24-hi@28773 )

Redirecting cp81899.live.edgefcs.net back to your rtmpsuck should make
the parameters a bit more obvious.

Skipping over all the details, the summary of what the rtmpdump syntax is:

rtmpdump -r "rtmp://cp81899.live.edgefcs.net/" -y "news24-hi at 28773" -a
"live/news24-hi at 28773?auth=daEd1dV...&aifp=v001" -W
"http://www.abc.net.au/iview/images/iview.jpg" -p
"http://www.abc.net.au/iview/#/programs/587926" -v -o livestream.flv

Your auth parameters will be different but apart from that as long as
you are using the Akami servers it should be the same.
