DESCRIPTION

       rtmpgw is a server for streaming media content from RTMP out to HTTP.

       rtmpgw listens for HTTP requests that specify RTMP stream parameters and then returns  the
       RTMP  data  in  the  HTTP  response. The only valid HTTP request is "GET /" but additional
       options can be provided in URL-encoded fashion. Options specified on the command line will
       be used as defaults, which can be overridden by options in the HTTP request.

OPTIONS

   Network Parameters
       These options define how to connect to the media server.

       --rtmp         -r url
              URL of the server and media content.

       --host         -n hostname
              Overrides the hostname in the RTMP URL.

       --port         -c port
              Overrides the port number in the RTMP URL.

       --protocol     -l number
              Overrides the protocol in the RTMP URL.
                0 = rtmp
                1 = rtmpt
                2 = rtmpe
                3 = rtmpte
                4 = rtmps
                5 = rtmpts

       --socks        -S host:port
              Use the specified SOCKS4 proxy.

   Connection Parameters
       These  options  define  the content of the RTMP Connect request packet.  If correct values
       are not provided, the media server will reject the connection attempt.

       --app          -a app
              Name of application to connect to on the RTMP server. Overrides the app in the RTMP
              URL. Sometimes the rtmpdump URL parser cannot determine the app name automatically,
              so it must be given explicitly using this option.

       --tcUrl        -t url
              URL of the target stream. Defaults to rtmp[e]://host[:port]/app/playpath.

       --pageUrl      -p url
              URL of the web page in which the media was embedded. By default no  value  will  be
              sent.

       --swfUrl       -s url
              URL of the SWF player for the media. By default no value will be sent.

       --flashVer     -f version
              Version  of  the  Flash  plugin  used  to  run  the SWF player. The default is "LNX
              10,0,32,18".

       --auth         -u string
              An authentication string to be appended to the Connect message. Using  this  option
              will append a Boolean TRUE and then the specified string.  This option is only used
              by some particular servers and is deprecated. The more general --conn option should
              be used instead.

       --conn         -C type:data
              Append arbitrary AMF data to the Connect message. The type must be B for Boolean, N
              for number, S for string, O for object, or Z for null. For Booleans the  data  must
              be  either  0  or  1 for FALSE or TRUE, respectively. Likewise for Objects the data
              must be 0 or 1 to end or begin an object, respectively. Data  items  in  subobjects
              may  be  named,  by  prefixing the type with 'N' and specifying the name before the
              value, e.g.  NB:myFlag:1. This option may  be  used  multiple  times  to  construct
              arbitrary AMF sequences. E.g.
                -C B:1 -C S:authMe -C O:1 -C NN:code:1.23 -C NS:flag:ok -C O:0

   Session Parameters
       These options take effect after the Connect request has succeeded.

       --playpath     -y path
              Overrides  the playpath parsed from the RTMP URL. Sometimes the rtmpdump URL parser
              cannot determine the correct playpath automatically, so it must be given explicitly
              using this option.

       --live         -v
              Specify  that the media is a live stream. No resuming or seeking in live streams is
              possible.

       --subscribe    -d stream
              Name of live stream to subscribe to. Defaults to playpath.

       --start        -A num
              Start at num seconds into the stream. Not valid for live streams.

       --stop         -B num
              Stop at num seconds into the stream.

       --buffer       -b num
              Set buffer time to num milliseconds. The default is 20000.

       --timeout      -m num
              Timeout the session after num seconds without receiving any data from  the  server.
              The default is 120.

   Security Parameters
       These options handle additional authentication requests from the server.

       --token        -T key
              Key   for   SecureToken   response,   used   if  the  server  requires  SecureToken
              authentication.

       --swfhash      -w hexstring
              SHA256 hash of the decompressed SWF file. This option may be needed if  the  server
              uses SWF Verification, but see the --swfVfy option below. The hash is 32 bytes, and
              must be given in hexadecimal. The --swfsize option must always be  used  with  this
              option.

       --swfsize      -x num
              Size of the decompressed SWF file. This option may be needed if the server uses SWF
              Verification, but see the --swfVfy option below. The --swfhash option  must  always
              be used with this option.

       --swfVfy       -W url
              URL  of  the  SWF  player  for  this  media.  This option replaces all three of the
              --swfUrl, --swfhash, and --swfsize options. When  this  option  is  used,  the  SWF
              player  is  retrieved  from  the  specified  URL and the hash and size are computed
              automatically. Also the information is cached in a .swfinfo file in the user's home
              directory,  so  that  it  doesn't  need to be retrieved and recalculated every time
              rtmpdump is run. The .swfinfo file records the URL, the time it  was  fetched,  the
              modification  timestamp  of  the  SWF file, its size, and its hash. By default, the
              cached info will be used for 30 days before re-checking.

       --swfAge       -X days
              Specify how many days to use the cached SWF  info  before  re-checking.  Use  0  to
              always  check  the  SWF URL. Note that if the check shows that the SWF file has the
              same modification timestamp as before, it will not be retrieved again.

   Miscellaneous
       --device       -D address
              Listener IP address. The default is 0.0.0.0, i.e., any IP address.

       --sport        -g port
              Listener port. The default is 80.

       --quiet        -q
              Suppress all command output.

       --verbose      -V
              Verbose command output.

       --debug        -z
              Debug level output. Extremely verbose, including hex dumps of all packet data.

       --help         -h
              Print a summary of command options.

EXAMPLES

       The HTTP request
            GET /?r=rtmp:%2f%2fserver%2fmyapp&y=somefile HTTP/1.0
       is equivalent to the rtrmpdump(1) invocation
            rtmpdump -r rtmp://server/myapp -y somefile

       Note that only the shortform (single letter) options are supported.

ENVIRONMENT

       HOME   The value of $HOME is used as the location for the .swfinfo file.

FILES

       $HOME/.swfinfo
              Cache of SWF Verification information
