You can download Open Source Media Framework 1.5 here

Open Source Media Framework 1.5 now includes full support for IP multicast, Multicast Fusion and Application Level Multicast (using Peer to Peer functionality). Included in this release is an updated definition of the F4M Manifest file that includes support for Multicast and P2P delivery.

Additionally, OSMF now supports the stream reconnect features found in Flash Player 10.1 and Flash Media Server 4 (all versions). This feature allows you to continue viewing video even if your network connection fails, and if you can reconnect before the buffer empties, you will have no disruption in playback.

To help you learn more about these features, including Multicast – there are now 2 new articles posted on the Adobe Developer Connection website.
