Delivery methods

OSMF supports a variety of delivery protocols:

  • HTTP, for live and recorded streaming, as well as progressive download

  • RTMP, for live and recorded streams

OSMF also supports advanced playback and delivery features for HTTP and RTMP streams. These include digital video recording features and multi-bitrate (“adaptive” or “dynamic”) streaming.

Additionally, new with Flash Media Server 4.0, OSMF 1.5 supports:

  • RTMFP, to enable multicasting of live streams
