Flash Media Live Encoder 3.1 for the MAC

Adobe is excited to announce the development of Flash Media Live Encoder 3.1 (FMLE 3) for Mac OS. This has been, by far, the most requested “feature” since the release of FMLE. The Mac version will have all of the features of the Windows version of FMLE 3, which include:

  • Ability to perform up to 3 simultaneous encodes
  • Saving to local file during encoding
  • Auto-adjust (helps manage the stream quality to stay live under poor network conditions)
  • Support for H.264 and VP6 codecs

FMLE 3.1 for Mac will work with the built-in MAC iSight as well as devices such as Firewire cameras and video capture cards to support a broad range of use cases and workflows. Like the Windows version, the Mac version of FMLE 3.1 will be free. We are not announcing a release date at this time, but customers who are interested in participating in a private beta can do so by signing up at our pre-release interest form (https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=prerelease_interest).

    What video capture cards will work with my MacBook Pro and FMLE? I purchased a Elgato Video Capture but it does not recognize it as a device…

    Any ideas on what will work?

      Hello, I’m trying to live stream from my built in i-Sight using FMLE, but it keeps giving me the message that it cannot detect my webcam (it hooks up with the mic just fine). Does this mean that I have to get an external camera? I can’t turn on my i-Sight without iChat or Photo Booth, but FMLE tells me to make sure the cam isn’t being used by any other program, but still doesn’t find it.
