Support - What are Rtmp/MMS/RTSP stream media protocols

RTMP - Real Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP) was initially a proprietary protocol developed by Macromedia for streaming audio, video and data over the Internet, between a Flash player and a server. Macromedia is now owned by Adobe, which has released the specification of the protocol for public use.

The RTMP protocol has three variations:

  1. The "plain" protocol which works on top of TCP and uses port number 1935 by default.
  2. RTMPT which is encapsulated within HTTP requests to traverse firewalls.
  3. RTMPS which is RTMPT over a secure SSL connection using HTTPS.

MMS - Microsoft Media Server (MMS) is the name of Microsoft's proprietary network streaming protocol used to transfer unicast data in Windows Media Services (previously called NetShow Services). MMS can be transported via UDP or TCP. The MMS default port is UDP/TCP 1755.

Microsoft deprecated MMS in favor of RTSP (TCP/UDP port 554) in 2003 with the release of the Windows Media Services 9 Series, but continued to support the MMS for some time in the interest of backwards compatibility. Support for the protocol was finally dropped in Windows Media Services 2008.

RTSP - The Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) is a network control protocol designed for use in entertainment and communications systems to control streaming media servers. The protocol is used for establishing and controlling media sessions between end points. Clients of media servers issue VCR-like commands, such as play and pause, to facilitate real-time control of playback of media files from the server.

The transmission of streaming data itself is not a task of the RTSP protocol. Most RTSP servers use the Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) for media stream delivery, however some vendors implement proprietary transport protocols. The RTSP server from RealNetworks, for example, also features RealNetworks' proprietary RDT stream transport.


All stream's links(rtmp://, mms:// and rtsp://) are hidden behind JavaScript or ActiveX scripts, so it is very difficult to rip video and audio stream from social media websites. FlashRip offer the stream monitor for you to find the playing stream media links.
