We need to have a website that is capable of doing live streaming. So my colleague built one using PHP, MySQL, etc. From what I have read we need Adobe Media Server and to have the license I signed up at Amazon Web Service - the license is affordable there. I don't know how to do it so I read a lot and encountered this tutorial(From Amazon), however there are steps that I have some questions below (I will write them in capital letters) for you to see my questions.
The tutorial use video player built with Open Source Media Framework (OSMF)
Live streaming with Strobe Media Playback
1 Log in to AWS Management Console and do one of the following:
• If you already have an instance running, click Instances in the Navigation pane.
• If you don’t have an instance running, follow the steps to Launch an instance of Adobe Media Server .
2 In the AWS Management Console, select the running instance and copy the Public DNS from the details pane.
3 Open Flash Media Live Encoder and enter the following:
• For AMS URL, enter:
Substitute the Public DNS value you copied from the AWS Management Console.
• For Stream, enter:
• Click Start to publish a stream to the live application on the instance.
4 Download Strobe Media Playback from http://blogs.adobe.com/osmf/
and unzip it. JUST DOWNLOAD, NO INSTALLATION IN MY LOCAL MACHINE?
5 Open the file strobe_root_folder/10.1/St
ml in a text or HTML editor.
6 Locate the following URL:
Replace the URL with the URL of the file you copied to the instance and save the file. Use the following syntax:
7 Open the StrobeMediaPlayback.html file in a browser and click Play.
The file streams from the Adobe Media Server on Amazon Web Services to the local version of Strobe Media
Playback. IN A FILE BROWSER BUT I NEED A VIDEO PLAYER ON THE WEBSITE. DOES THIS MEAN WE CAN INSTALL THE STROBEMEDIAPLAYBACK ON THE WEBSITE? IS IT LIKE HTML5 VIDEO OR OTHER VIDEOS THAT CAN BE EMBEDDED ON THE WEBSITE?
8 You can also serve Strobe Media Playback and its supporting files from the Apache web server installed with Adobe
Media Server on Amazon Web Services. Copy the Strobe Media Playback files to the following directory: WHY DO I WANT TO DO THAT? YOU MEAN THE WEBSITE CAN BE HOSTED WHERE THE ADOBE MEDIA SERVER ON AMAZON WEB SERVICE IS? HOW DO I LOCATE THAT? USING WINSCP? FILEZILLA DIDN'T WORK.
For example, create a folder /mnt/webroot/strobe. Copy the following files from the strobe_root_folder/10.1 folder
to the /mnt/webroot/strobe folder:
StrobeMediaPlayback.html, SampleMediaPlayback.swf, the images folder, the scripts folder, and the playlists folder.
Load the following URL into a browser and click play:
Thanks for the reply/comment/help in advance.
