RTMP is a Flash protocol. It can't be used on any mobile device.

I see. I changed it to HLS and it worked. Thank you.

In terms of latency, HLS makes about 30 seconds latency, and RTMP is faster (2 or 3 seconds). Is there any good workaround to get lower latency by using HLS or any other protocol only with a browser of iphone?
