We don't have any support for decoding media streamed using RTMP at all,
though that would be a relatively easy thing to do on top of the current
remoting support (if anyone wants to fund it!)

Implementing support for DRM-"protected" streams, even if possible,
would be legally difficult, because Gnash could then be used to save the
media, and that's a circumvention of copy protection.

Gnash doesn't have support for any proprietary DRM libraries and we
wouldn't wish to encourage such a thing.


Use Gnash, the GNU Flash Player!
