Similar to Communicating with a flash server using rtmp without Flash I'd like to communicate with a RTMP server without Flash. The difference is that I'd like to publish a video stream instead of playing it.
- Is there a difference between publishing video streams and playing them?
- On a high level, how do I implement a live video chat client that records from a local webcam and publishes to a RTMP server? Is it as simple as grabbing video frames from a webcam, wrapping them in RTMP and sending them to the server? Or does something else happen along the way?
