RTMP (Real Time Messaging Protocol) is a system for delivering on-demand and live media to Adobe Flash applications (like the HDW Player). RTMP supports video in FLV and H.264 (MP4/MOV/F4V) formats and audio in MP3 and AAC (M4A) formats.

RTMP offers several advantages over regular HTTP video downloads:

  • RTMP can do live streaming.
  • With RTMP, viewers can seek to not-yet-downloaded parts of a video.
  • Videos delivered over RTMP are harder to steal than videos delivered over regular HTTP.
