RTMFP Groups / Multicast now available from Adobe Labs
Kevin Towes, Flash Media Server product manager, announced the availability of Stratus 2 today. If you are interested in the details of Flash Player 10.1 P2P, I would strongly recommend to watch Matthew Kaufman’s presentation on Adobe TV.
“Today, we released Stratus 2 RTMFP introduction service with full support RTMFP Groups. With this updated service, developers can start exploring a full set of Peer Assisted Networking functionality within Flash player 10.1 and AIR 2.0.
You can access your Developer key and more details here.
Adobe® Stratus 2 enables peer assisted networking using the Real Time Media Flow Protocol (RTMFP) within the Adobe Flash® Platform. RTMFP is the evolution of media delivery and real time communication over the Internet enabling peers on the network to assist in delivery. Stratus was first introduced in 2008 as a rendezvous-only service that allowed clients to send data from client to client without passing through a server. Adobe Flash Player 10, which debuted peer assisted networking, has been adopted today by over 90% of all internet connected PCs.
We have some new articles in the works, and sample applications coming soon, but you can start using the new service right now.
