How can I monitor a Flash Media Stream just to know that it is up and streaming? In other words what methodology and plugins to use? I know there is a commercial software for this and it is very expensive, but I just need to know if it is up or not. I control the client Flash Streamer, called Flash Media Live encoder, but not the server. Of course, FMLE resides on a Windows Machine.
And I already have a functional Nagios Installation on my Linux box.
