Comment (by JEEB):

 HEVC over FLV (and thus RTMP) is not defined nor supported. And unless
 Adobe specifies it, we should not support it. We have enough hacks inside
 FFmpeg as it is.

 Not to mention that there are alternatives out there are properly
 specified for newer formats such as VP9 or HEVC that can be utilized
 instead for both ingest to a media server as well as something the actual
 playback clients get. I mean, even plain MPEG-TS or fragmented ISOBMFF
 over HTTP would be achievable easily. And while things like HLS or MPEG-
 DASH are usually used with relatively high latency (often in order to
 improve compression ratios), they can also be used so that the latency
 would be within those parameters you mention, so that sort of latency
 limitation is not really a limitation per se (considering the ingest to a
 media server that handles the packaging is done in a relatively sane way
 and that the encoder in the very beginning of the chain is configured
 accordingly latency-wise).
