how to play an rtmp stream

Recommended Posts

JohnOne

Is it possible to play an rtmp stream somehow, perhaps by embedding a browser in gui or something?

Web search just keeps pointing me to vlc player. I'll investigate that if and when any other possible methods are exhausted.

Among other information I have, is a link like this...

rtmp://streaming.playwire.com/18465/mp4:video-20141018-1444132.mp4

years ago when i was downloading all the austin city limits streams off of PBS I had to resort to rtmpdump.  Then just play it local.

I was hoping and half expecting something like this to work, and open it locally.

RTMPDumpHelper is a small utility that can help you to easily download RTMP video/audio streams. By combining this utility and the proxy server of RTMPDump toolkit, you can simply open a Web page containing RTMP video stream in your favorite Web browser, and while watching the video, it'll be saved to your disk automatically as .flv or .mp4 file. 

 

What are you looking to do differently than the helper does?

I'm wanting to achieve it without third party tools.

That tool is worth a look, but it does require another tool itself.

For the moment I have discovered how to derive a direct http link to the mp4 file.

I know it has been awhile John, but were you able to figure this out?

I would like to know as well, please. Thanks!

I never did i'm afraid, I just noticed by chance that from something like rtmp//blah/blah/xxyyxx I could use http://videohost/blah/blah/xxyyzz.mp4 to play the files directly from this particular site so never pursued the rtmp any further.
