Leonardo França writes; Zend AMF is an implementation done in PHP to work with the communication protocol binary AMF (Action Message Format) and is part of ZendFramework. I had to implement a system to upload files that were a little different than what is typically used in Flash, with this feature had to be integrated into the Zend AMF.
Researching a little on the net, found a solution that was simpler than I thought based on that article with a few adjustments.
Begin with our gateway to be used as endpoint in Adobe Flex.
$server = new Zend_Amf_Server();

Shine (formely 8hz-MP3) is a simple lightweight C-based MP3 encoder made by LAME developer Gabriel Bouvigne.
Description of Shine on his website:
The goal of this encoder was not quality, but simplicity. I tryed to simplify the encoding process as much as possible. So Shine is then a good starting point when a programmer needs a very simple MP3 encoder
This Alchemy port features:
- MP3 encoding of mono and stereo WAVs (no time limit)
- non-blocking encoding for progress status in flash
- errors automatically sent to flash for easy log/debug
Helper class to write WAV formated audio files. The class expects audio input data in a byte array with samples represented as floats.
The default compressed code is set to PCM. The class resamples and formats the audio samples according to the class properties. The resampling geared for performance and not quality, for best quality use sampling rates that divide/multiple into the desired output
For more information about the WAVE file format see: http://ccrma.stanford.edu/courses/422/projects/WaveFormat/

Here is a very good multi-part tutorial on the ins and outs of mobile client / server development, that adds some quite useful functionality on Android, Apple IOS and Blackberry mobile devices.
In this Test Drive, you are going to create a Flex mobile application that retrieves, displays, and modifies database records (see Figure 1). A Flex application does not connect directly to a remote database. Instead, you connect it to a data service written in your favorite web language (PHP, ColdFusion, Java, or any other server-side technology). You will build the front-end Flex mobile application; the database and the server-side code to manipulate database records is provided for you as a PHP class, a ColdFusion component, or Java classes.

Flash Builder 4.5 has a built-in data paging feature that generates ActionScript code to retrieve data from the database incrementally on demand. For example, suppose your database has thousands of records and you want to fetch only 20 rows at a time and display them in a data grid. When you enable paging for an operation and bind the operation result to a DataGrid control, the first 20 records will be retrieved initially and the next page of records is fetched only when the user requests them—that is, when he or she scrolls the vertical scroll bar of the DataGrid control.
Flash Builder 4.5 lets you enable paging for any type of data service operation including operations on a Remoting service, web service, or HTTP service. This article explains how to enable data paging for a PHP-based Remoting service. After you set up the server environment required for the sample application, you’ll use Flash Builder 4.5 to generate ActionScript service classes and build a Flex application that incrementally retrieves data sets from a database table using the PHP class on the server.

With Adobe’s latest incarnation of the Flex Framework and the Flash Builder integrated development environment (IDE), creating truly engaging front-end clients is now more streamlined. Some of the useful tools and features covered in this article are the Data/Services, Test Operation, and Network Monitor additions to Flash Builder. In this article, I explain how to set up a simple Representational State Transfer (REST) service using the Zend Framework 1.9 locally and connect to it in the Flex 4 application.
To get the most from this article, you should have a basic knowledge of the Zend Framework version 1.9. Development experience locally on your machine with Apache Server distributions like XAMPP, WAMP, or MAMP is helpful but not mandatory. You will need to deploy the server-side application on Apache running PHP. There is no database connectivity for this article.
Finally, you must have Flash Builder with PHP development tools installed or some flavor of the Eclipse IDE with the Flash Builder plug-in to complete the examples in this article.
