 Summary of the bug:

 When FFmpeg connects to RTMP server via digest ("complex") handshake,
 FFmpeg takes inconsistent ways at the step of sending C2: If it is a
 publisher, it sends C2 as an echo of S1, OTOH if it's a subscriber, it
 creates a new packet of C2 consisting of 1504B random-data and 32B
 signature. In my option the latter one is the expected behavior, while the
 formal one is only correct in the context of simple handshake. The code
 shows that publishing and subscribing fall into different branches from
 this line:
 And RTMP publishing feature was introduced in

 Although the official RTMP specification obviously lacks a section on
 digest handshaking, I have checked several open source implementations
 like nginx-rtmp, Red5 and SRS, and they all take the random-data-and-
 signature way.
