  • Encoding support for MP3 format
  • Command-line execution
  • Automatically start at operating system launch
  • Automated maintenance restart

  • Improvements to Quality of Service

Version 3.0 was released on January 12, 2009 with the following added features:

  • An updated user interface and additional presets
  • Multi-bitrate encoding (up to three different bitrates)
  • File management improvements (save multiple files based on file size/duration, parameters in filenames)
  • DVR functionality
  • System timecode support (SMPTE, LTC, VITC or BITC timecodes could be used if supported by capture device; if not, the system timecode could be used)

  • Support for additional compatible devices



FMLE is a desktop application that connects to a Flash Media Server (FMS) or a Flash Video Streaming Service (FVSS) via the Real Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP) to stream live video to connected clients. Clients connect to the FMS or FVSS server and view the stream through a Flash Player SWF.

FMLE supports On2 VP6 or H.264 codecs for video and MP3 or Nellymoser for audio. Additionally, AAC and HE-AAC for audio is supported with a plug-in available from MainConcept[1]

FMLE integrates directly with Flash Media Server functionality, including recording a readable-while-open live stream file that enables DVR-like seeking during playback of live events. It is also possible to encode multiple files at once — at different bitrates — to support Dynamic Streaming (adaptive bitrate streaming).

In addition to encoding live events with finite start and end times, features such as command-line control, auto reconnect, and remote access enable efficient 24/7 encoding.
