i think you may have found the same thing that I did.
The latest nightly builds do not seem to have the "correct" librtmp file.
so, like we had to do back when Crawl found this out...
as long as you are going to use the nightlies, you will have to do this everytime!
I've asked the Dev's about it... but they are mute as this is seemingly outside their scope. whoever handles the librtmp needs to put out the correct version. problem is... I'm not sure if anyone knows where this version is coming from... or why it works.... :-?
Please don't blame the Devs in this case. They are doing nothing wrong. And the problem certainly isn't outside of their scope. They simply can't standardize a single version of librtmp that works on all devices. That's just not possible right now.
The problem is that because the librtmp file is OS dependent, a different version is required for different devices. The librtmp file that works on iOS devices like ATV2, iPad, iPhone, will not work on other devices like a Windows computer, or an OS X computer. In the same way that there's a different version of Java for Windows, OS X, etc. So there is not a "Correct" version so to speak that works for everyone. There are several versions made for each different applicable OS.
XBMC is amazingly diverse, in that it works on a whole host of different devices running different OSes. But there are still some minor aspects of XBMC like this, that must be platform dependent. There's no easy way around it. I doubt that it will be this way forever. The Devs are brilliant, and I have no doubt they will provide a better solution in the future when it's possible. They have standardized an amazing amount of XBMC behind the scenes already. Please be patient with this one little aspect, until a better solution is available. Somebody will always have a fix for you here on the forums. Take advantage of it.
Hope that explains things.
