An acronym for Real Time Messaging Protocol, RTMP was developed by Adobe Systems to stream media between a server and a Flash player. The protocol is commonly used to distribute Web animation such as SWF files. Users can easily save an RTMP-streamed SWF file by taking advantage of a basic functionality in their Internet browser. Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer all make it possible to save the source files of rendered media like Flash animation in the SWF format.
