  4. $f("live", "", {

    clip: {
    url: 'my_lifecast',
    live: true,
    // configure clip to use influxis as our provider, it uses our rtmp plugin
    provider: 'influxis'

    // streaming plugins are configured under the plugins node
    plugins: {

    // here is our rtpm plugin configuration
    influxis: {
    url: 'flowplayer.rtmp-3.2.3.swf',
