Adobe Labs has just released the beta of Stratus which is the highly anticipated launch of the RTMFP protocol. RTMFP (Real Time Media Flow Protocol) is a Peer 2 Peer technology built on top of UDP (User Datagram Protocol or as I like to call it Unreliable Data Protocol, joking! Well. . . maybe not). This is a big step forward for FMS (since Stratus has to use FMS to connect the peers), for Multiplayer Gaming, and VoIP applications.

I’ve been researching Stratus for the last few days now, and I wanted to share my findings. Hopefully this will help get some of you adventurous types up and running. You can get your Developer Key from here.

This level of difficulty is around Intermediate to Advanced, I’m going to do my best to make it as plain as possible, so good luck. I am going to just go through the steps of setting it up, and explain as I go.

    Hi Eva,

    Did you enter your Stratus Developer key, a RTMP address, and your Stratus Address? They are in the public static vars at the top.

    But I am redoing that example with the new MotherBrain RTMFP Toolkit.
