ACNS with Flash/RTMP?

Answered Question

I have an ACNS implementation with 20+ sites using WCCP service 80-83 & webcache. I have a client that wants to publish a video portal with flash similar to youtube. These VOD's will be low quality/bandwidth.

My question is with the existing WAE's onsite is there any way I could preposition the flash media file and have it serve the local users at the sites?

From what I have read to "stream" flash to the desktops the rtmp protocol is used.

Can I use rtmpt and publish the links to the videos as http URL's and have wccp intercept the packets and redirect to the WAE for acquisition?

I cannot find any information if rtmp is a supported streaming format for WAE's running ACNS 5.5+?

any suggestions or comments are appreciated.

I have this problem too.

ACNS basically supports native WMT, Real and Quicktime streaming. Flash can be supported via progressive downloads via HTTP and played locally on the desktop. You would have to enable webcache and manage the streaming/downloads via HTTP.

Hope that helps,
