Note:

Adobe Media Server on Amazon Web Services supports peer-assisted, application-level multicast. It does not support IP multicast or multicast fusion. In peer-assisted multicast, Flash Player and AIR clients send data to each other in a mesh. In IP multicast, the server sends data to a router at a specified IP address. The router sends the data to Flash Player and AIR clients. Multicast fusion uses both technologies together.
