[rtmpdump] swf verify on akamia hulu cdn

Hulu updated their server to use swf verify for the akamia cdn. akamia is the only cdn that has HD streams. I ran into this problem originally with the Hulu XBMC plug-in.

I have been using rtmpdump to test parameters and try to figure out the problem. It exhibits the same problem I am having with XBMC.

XBMC will play the stream for a minute or so if I disable swf verify but if I enable swf verify it will immediately give me a socket error 10054 (connection reset by peer) after it returns the SWFVerification response.

I am confused because I have verified the parameters I am using with rtmpsrv and everything seems to be in order. I think it doesn't like the SWFVerification response.

anyone have an ideas?

here is the debug out with swf verify enabled.

here it is with swf verify disabled.

Thanks in advance for any help on this issue. I am stumped because swf verify works perfectly for other plug-ins.
