View Full Version : How to force recording of a stream on server-side ?

Hi All !

I know Flash client can make the server record the stream by specifying "append" or "record" in the NetStream.publish method. However if a client API is hacked and a person abusing the service would choose to avoid getting his camera recorded by NOT specifying the abovementioned argument - can the FlashCom server still force the recording of the stream by f.e. server-side Stream.record method ? I tried to use it, but only get an .idx file and no recording....

One possible workaround to try - have your FCS server publish the stream to another FCS server which records it. Also, it looks like you're running FCS 1.0 (1.5 doesn't use idx files anymore). You might want to get FCS 1.5.

No the version is 1.5 and .idx files only appear when Stream.record is called at server side. Thanks for the tip ! :)

It is funny when the documentation says that record makes the stream "record all data going through the stream" but in truth this is not the case.
