RTMP is the protocol used by Adobe’s Flash Media Server to stream content into flash. Most of the help documentation doesn’t touch much on this method of connection and is limited to sources not easily available to users.

A very important part of streaming any type of media is the bandwidth. You want to stream the best quality possible, but keep the stream constant. This can be a very tricky thing since all your users will most likely not be at the same connection speeds. Adobe has a great article on the math behind calculating different kinds of bandwidth for one-to-many (video on demand) setups and many-to-many (video conference) setups.

The FWA Theater recently opened it’s doors and is showcasing a new interface called FiV. This new interface/platform is developed by Fantasy Interactive. It has the typical Fi look and feel that has
plagued made a name for Fi for years. The FiV system seems to be a great fit for those that have a lot of video content and need to have it organized and easy to navigate. With the rise in bandwidth speeds, more sites seem to be gearing towards video content. The only catch that I can think of is a site that can handle/afford the bandwidth of a system that has massive amounts of video content will probably have the budget and need to design their own system. Could you imagine Hulu using this system instead of their own?
This would be a great tool if it was cheap (think Slideshow Pro), and could handle smaller amounts of video content gracefully without looking empty. Future potential could then be an online video editing suite add-on (think Slideshow Pro Director) and Live Video stream support.
I don’t believe this system will take off to quickly, but has a great potential.
