are you using speedera or a co-located server?

Subject: [Flashcoders] Need a little help with rtmp and streaming
video...


Anyone else had this problem?

I've got a video that Akamai has indicated is rendered and working
fine. They've tested it on their end and all is good. I've used the
Dreamweaver Insert Flash Video command. I've entered the rtmp url
correctly. I've uploaded ALL the required files, including main.acs,
and the AC_RunActiveContent.js file, and all the SWF skins. Everything
is in the right place. I've used this Insert Flash Video command on
a plain, white, blank html page with no additional markup.

Whenever I hit the page, I get nothing. No error, nothing indicating
anything is wrong. In fact... I simply get *nothing* on the page. My
status bar on the browser indicates I have an open connection to my
development server, but nothing ever displays.

Anyone tried inserting streaming video from a streaming server and
gotten *nothing* before? The video is fine, in fact, they even put up
a test flv file for me, and I can't even get that one to display
correctly. The urls are perfect. Just no flash. I've tested in Safari,
IE and Firefox on a Mac, IE and Firefox on Windows, and
just...nothing. I'm about to pull my hair out. This is supposed to be
a very straightforward process, but it seems like it's everything but.

RE: [Flashcoders] VitalStream Bandwidth detection

2006-10-04 Thread Rob Bayne
looks like bwcheck to me. i'd just use p_bw in a condition where p_bw is 
detected bandwidth.

if p_bw is less than than x play stream1, else if p_bw is greater than x and 
less than y play stream2, else play stream3. 
ie. stream1=56kbps; stream2=150kbps; stream3=300kbps;

i usually run the bwcheck on an interval several times and get an average bw 
figure to go by and even dynamically change streams-- you can do it seemlessly 
by bookmarking ns.time and seeking to it once new stream has loaded.

Subject: [Flashcoders] VitalStream Bandwidth detection


Does anybody have code to detect users bandwidth on VitalStream? I'm using
the custom player source provided by vitalstream but it only works with
single bitrate streams. When I try to use a multi bitrate stream as the
sname parameter in the m_XMLURI string the player fails. Looking through the
source code I found some clues as to why it is not working, but don't have a
lot of time to debug the code and find the solution. I've been working with
VitalStream support on this and they are no help at all. They sent me links
to an irrelevent adobe tutorial as their solution.

Here is a fragment of code from that player that hints about bandwith
detection but also says it is not used?!!?

[code]
//the server calls this object to continue (auto bandwidth detection is
complete)
this[nc+i].onBWDone = function(p_bw) {
trace(onBWDone: +p_bw);
//we pass the successful netConnection and the
calculated bandwidth speed to
// the onconnected function to continue
this.mc.onConnected(this, p_bw);
};
m_payload = 0;
//this function is not currently used; it is for checking
bandwidth speed
// initiated by the server
this[nc+i].onBWCheck = function() {
trace(onBWCheck returning:
+(this.mc.m_payload+1));
return ++this.mc.m_payload;
};
[/code]

So my question is: Does anybody have a working (multi-bitrate streams)
example of a video player for the VitalStream content delivery system? They
have players that work with multi-bitrate streams in .swf format but do not
release the flv source for those players. 

Any help would be appreciated. A working .fla example would be priceless!

Thanks,
Brian
