Adobe annonced RTMP (Real-Time Messaging Protocol) specification to be published soon (first half of 2009 they say ).
Finally, everyone will be introduced to the real specs of it (not a raw one built by amateurs studing packet-data) and have free access to build own video/audio content controllers/privatizers
“With the RTMP specification, developers and companies will be able to provide users with optimized audio, video and data streaming, no matter what kind of device the user is on or where the content is coming from,” said Adobe CTO Kevin Lynch
Well, good luck to all of us! And welcome to the open source era!
