RTMP Hosting

What is RTMP? or what is the use of a RTMP?


RTMP is kind of URL used by media servers, it is a protocol to connect for example a video camera to a media server or a viewer of a streaming event to the media server.

Lets first explain what is a media server. A media server differently from a normal server which is used mainly to host web sites is used to handle media events, audio, video streaming, video chat and so on. and the way they connect to the input which could be a video camera or a microphone and then connect to the output which is a flash player so the user sitting behind a desktop or a laptop can hear or see the video with the stream.rtmp hosting

The main media servers are Adobe Media Server, Red5 and Wowza Streaming Engine. All 3 have the RTMP, but the rtmp is used on flash players and it has been decided that flash players are vulnerable to security holes and they use lots of laptop battery so flash players are going slowly out, the new HTML5 Players will not use RTMP.

Red5 the open source version has not yet evolve to support other protocols, while adobe media and wowza have enabled different system to support the HTML5 Player.

An example of a RTMP:

Few hosting companies support media servers or RTMP Hosting, first because it is very resource intensive and so needs high end servers but also because not many people are familiar with the management of media servers and if they are it becomes expensive to hire them on a permanent basis.

There is but a few like Red5 Server and Hosting Marketers. Hosting Marketers was the first hosting company offering media servers on they shared plan, it started with Video One costing $9.95 a month and with one RTMP assigned to the account free of any extra fee. The rtmp was from red5, but now for the last 5 years Hosting Marketers is also offering Wowza Hosting which supports RTMP and HTML5 protocols.

streaming videos using red5 rtmp and the strobe player

Most of our customers who want to stream videos on their site already have their videos, in this case we prepare a rtmp with a link to a folder we create on the customer account (public_html).

The folder is normally called streams, the customer uploads his videos files in flv format to this folder.

After that we deploy the customized rtmp on the red5 server.
this rtmp can use for live broadcasts or to stream, at any time the customer can upload more videos or delete them.

Now it is time to prepare the player, we will use abobe strobe player and we can configure at:


if for example the name of the video file is onetest.flv
on the settings of the player we will add the rtmp plus the video file together:

now click preview and a code is generated, paste this code on any site and that’s it, you have a player and a video ready to be streamed.

on this site http://www.osmf.org/configurator/fmp/#  you can also make a player for a live broadcast, using the same rtmp, but this time no video file in front, but the name of the stream which be anything as long as it is the same on the player and the one you use on the encoder.

then you would have to use the encoder, the best one is the one on our site:

enter the rtmp and the stream click connect and then choose your settings, start from lower and then increase until you find the settings with better results.
