I admit that RTMP support in FFmpeg is not that good because of lack of
And I'm more and more inclined to see it supported via something that
does that work. Actually it's Adobe fault - if RTMP was stable we'd
have working implementation by now and no need of external dependencies;
but no, somebody decided it's a good idea to change handshake every
couple of months and add some commands and not document anything.
So until it's settled down it may be good to stash away current RTMP
code and use rtmpdump. It has active developers and I'd rather spend my
time on REing some codec. Unless someone wants to beef lavf version up.
