Dynamic Streaming with FMS 3.5

The process of dynamic streaming has been updated, and greatly enhanced, in Flash Media Server (FMS) 3.5. RealEyes Media’s David Hassoun has created a three-part tutorial series for implementing this powerful streaming technology so that you can deliver the best quality video experiences possible using Adobe’s Flash Player.

Part 1: Overview of the new capabilities

Part 2: ActionScript 3.0 dynamic stream API

Part 3: Integrating dynamic streaming with existing video players

About Dynamic Streaming
Dynamic streaming is the process of efficiently delivering streaming video to users by dynamically switching among different streams of varying quality and size during playback. This provides users with the best possible viewing experience their bandwidth and local computer hardware (CPU) can support. Another major goal of dynamic streaming is to make this process smooth and seamless to users, so that if up-scaling or down-scaling the quality of the stream is necessary, it is a smooth and nearly unnoticeable switch without disrupting the continuous playback.

David’s article series provides an overview of the enhanced capabilities and concepts of dynamic streaming with Adobe Flash Player 10 and Adobe AIR 1.5 with the new Adobe Flash Media Server 3.5 (using either Flash Media Streaming Server 3.5 or Flash Media Interactive Server 3.5). Although dynamic streaming was somewhat possible in previous versions of Flash Player and Flash Media Server, the process was very complicated to implement from a developer’s perspective and the end result was not a smooth user experience.

Want to implement dynamic streaming using FMS 3.0? Check out David’s original dynamic stream switching article.

Jun Heider on Inside RIA

Our own Jun Heider has started a series on InsideRIA. InsideRIA is a site that was recently launched by O’Reilly and Adobe to focus on the RIA community as a whole. The series is called “Flex RIA Performance Considerations” and the plan for the series is to come out with a new post each month for 12 months.

The first post was published on March 17th. It was an overview on the series as a whole and an offering of resource links and background information. In addition, a list was provided detailing the direction of future posts in the series.

This week’s post details “Application Startup” considerations in Flex performance. Here is a direct URL to where Jun’s series will live: http://www.insideria.com/jun_heider.
