Are you using
Amazon Cloudfront for public/private video streaming over rtmp? Having trouble to figure out why some of your videos fail to stream (over rtmp) and throw ‘Stream not found’ flash/actionscript client side errors?
I have figured out:
Videos with invalid
chapter markers would not stream over rtmp ( Adobe Flash Media Server) or via Cloudfront. Adobe’s
FLVCheck utility suggests our videos have invalid chapter markers. I am not sure, if chapter markers in our videos are invalid or Adobe Media Server expect those to be in different format. Same set of videos play fine with Quicktime/VLC player, Adobe Flash Player (over http progressive download) and html5 player (chrome or others which support H.264 videos)
I am disappointed with the fact – Adobe Media Server ceases to play (core feature) a video because of (optional feature?) chapter marker(s) which can be ignored if it is corrupt or invalid.
Thanks to AWS engineers who confirmed the case, and provided more details.

I am evaluating various
nosql solutions for our existing/new projects. Bluesmoon recommended about Riak which is an awesome nosql datastore/database (and lot more). I couldn’t wait to check it out.
As usual, I relied on
Homebrew – the best package manage for OSX – to install applications/libraries. While installing, I got an error: $ brew install riak
$ Error: Failed executing: make all rel
After searching for a while, I figured out that there are
known issues. With the help of Adam‘s comment on github, I was able to install Riak finally.
We make brew ignore Riak’s dependencies while building it.
Following commands should build and install Riak:
$ brew update
$ brew install erlang
$ brew install --HEAD --ignore-dependencies riak -v
