Stream with Flash Media Live Encoder Tutorial
Configure Server Information
Open the Flash Media Encoder and enter your stream details on the lower right corner as shown in the picture. The "FMS URL" field contains RTMP, your account name followed by srfms.com (srfms stands for Server Room Flash Media Server) slash (/) live slash (/). For example if your account name is demofs, your FMS URL will be rtmp://demofs.srfms.com/live/
In the "Stream Name" field, type in the name for your stream. You can have two streams at the same time but they must have different names. By default the stream name is livestream, but you can type in anything. After you have filled in these two fields click the "Connect" button.
