When is a good time for you to attend virtual meetings? 10
So we are really interested in what would be a good time to hold meetings for users of the FMS-UG?
Initially we are planning on having 1 meeting per-month on the same week. So something like every second-wednesday at 5pm PST?
Any recommendations for day of the week that works well for people?
Also time of day (please include time-zone)?

'Server detected a backward timestamp' messages in FMS logs 7
Just wanted to know if there is any update on "Server detected a backward timestamp" messages? Does this warning have any impact on fms server(in term of huge memory likages reported)/server on which fms is installed?
If any of you is a member of Flash Media list for last 2years. Then you must have remember there was a discussion regarding this issue i am quoting few lines from that discussion said by Asa:
and in case servers don't have time update function i.e. NTP port are closed.
this is what Asa has said ""
Just wanted to know if there is any update in this regard/warning/error repoted in log file?

I just found out that ALL all the f4v files that I created (either with FMLE3 or with adobe premiere) somehow have a duration limit of 4294 seconds. All videos with duration less than 4294 seconds play back fine. For those above it, they play back ok on the local machine but when streamed from an FMS, the reported total duration is 13 hours+! And if you ignore the total time error and keep playing back the files, they all stop at the magical 4294 seconds. I have tried putting them onto different FMS servers and they all behave the same. It is also not a problem with my code because I've used different client-side apps to view them. Is anyone experiencing the same problem? I'm surprised that I haven't read about it because 4294 seconds is just 1.2 hours, which is a relatively short duration and its failure should have alarmed most. Can someone shine some light onto it please?

I am new to FMS and having a bit of trouble. I was able to setup a test VOD video in:
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Flash Media Server 3.5\applications\vod\media
Using using test.html in C:\Program Files\Adobe\Flash Media Server 3.5\webroot
test.html is as below
<object width='640' height='377' id='videoPlayer' name='videoPlayer' type='application/x-shockwave-flash' classid='clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000' >
<embed src='swfs/videoPlayer.swf' width='640' height='377' id='videoPlayer' quality='high' bgcolor='#000000' name='videoPlayer' allowfullscreen='true' pluginspage='http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer' flashvars='&videoWidth=0&videoHeight=0&dsControl=manual&dsSensitivity=100&serve rURL=rtmp://MyServer/vod/legend.flv&DS_Status=true&streamType=vod&autoStart=true ' type='application/x-shockwave-flash'> </embed>
I am able to get the flash player and the content. If i try from another device I only get the outline of the player.
This is a defsult insatll, no changes have been made. Any ideas?

FMS Reconnection Logic and Bitrate Switching best practices 5
I wanted to ask about best practices around the topics of reconnecting to a lost stream, and bitrate switching.
Reconnection is my main question. So, it's easy enough for me to keep track of the playback time of the video, and then if I lose my connection I start a new connection and stream and seek to the point in the video where I lost the connection. What's the best practice around trying to reconnect? Currently, I waiting for a successful connection event, or a failure event. If a failure event, I'm promptly trying again. If I'm permanently denied this could go on forever. Should I be concerned about bombarding FMS with reconnection attempts? Should I space them out more? Should I limit my attempts to x tries? We're on a paid host, and I want to make sure that I'm not negatively impacting them or our account through constant retries.
Secondarily, any best practices for how often I use Flash 10's NetStreamInfo properties to check droppedFrames and bandwidth? It looks like OSMF is checking these properties every 500ms. Is there any negative impact (other than CPU usage if you were doing something ridiculous and checking every 1 ms or so) for continually checking these properties? How often do you guys check bandwidth?
Thanks very much!
