The file is a command-line utility which will only work in terminal, but when you download it, it doesn't always seem to keep the executable bit.  So first you have to make it executable.

From the shell prompt, change directories to where you downloaded the file.  Most people use /Users/<user>/Downloads:

cd /Users/<your username>/Downloads

Then we set the executable bit (this example sets global read/write/execute permissions for the file, for the sake of simplicity):

chmod 777 flvstreamer-2.1c1_macosx_intel_32bit

Now you can run the file.  If you type:


it will give you a help page with the syntax and options.

I hope that helps!

short and maybe newbie question.
How can I get the downloaded flvstreamer file for Mac OSX 10.6 running?
It has no file-extension (or a .sig).
Do I have to compile it? And if yes, how do I do this?

Thanks in advance for any help.
