    • Confirmed I can reproduce this as well. As noted in the original ticket, this is likely the same issue original experienced in Google Chrome’s implementation of Pepper Flash, but is now resolved. See https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=243700

    • Me as well

    • I have seen the same issue.

    • I have seen this as well. Hope to find a resolution soon.

    • To clarify, this is regarding Flash RTMFP multicast video which leverages the Windows Reliable Multicast Protocol. It’s an important feature for enterprise streaming that is not (at least not yet) exposed through any native alternative.

      Like Chrome, it may be the case that multicast support wasn’t wired up out of the gate.
