Just my 2 cents on flv header data (but you might all know this) :
The onMetaData event is a Data Frame, not audio, not video, its data!!!
Data can be sent threw streams in flashcom with the NetStream.send method.
They can also be recorded (just a reminder) and anyone can send a message
to them when they are live and publishers of that stream. These Data Frames
are also associated with a timestamp. The same principal applies to
onMetaData but Im guessing you could inject it automatically which is what
you want to do.
It would look a bit like: myNetstream.send(onMetaData
complexStreamInfoObject); if it was to be done in flashcom server
side-script, but flashcom does it automatically for the onMetaData and maybe
On another note: I dont know if you guys figured this part out, but when
the Flash Client creates a NetStream in its code createStream is invoked
on the NetConnection Class with the call method. I dont know if this call
is handled by the NetConnection on the clients machine internally just for
initialisation purposes or if this call actually gets down to the server.

Things are being integrated. I've committed some code that integrates the
FLV code with the red5 server based on some api's that Luke set forth. I've
tried streaming a flv once, and saw some output from java console, but it
was a no go. So I'm gonna go to bed and think about things. Luke take a
look at the Stream.java and let me know what you think. Here's some of my
I need to know what type would be returned on the initial flv header return.
its obviously not type 0x08 (audio) or 0x09 (video). Also, I'm not
currently sending the video packets down their own channel. Maybe you
figure out how to send the two different data types down their own channel.
Also try to think about how we should send that flv header data. Anyway,
good luck, i'll look again tomorrow.
