All incoming streams are decoded by default. This behaviour is specified by option
This option may be switched off in flashphoner.properties file if necessary (for example, to reduce the server load):
In this case, incoming streams will be decoded on request only:
- If transcoding is necessary
- If decoding is necessary when taking a PNG snapshot of the stream
In the cases above, decoder is created only for the time of transcoding or snapshot taking, and is stopped after the operation is completed.
