While recently working with the new Flash Player features, i came across a definitive issue in the new claimed AEC (Advance Echo cancellation) feature.
While Adobe says that AEC removes all echo problems that may happen in 2 way communications, i really doubt that the issue is far from resolved. In fact this introduces a new kind of issue.
The AEC algorithm actually tries to clear echoes, and mic feedback residues. However the interesting thing to note is the feedback issue will happen only if you have set Microphone.setLoopback(true); Else you will never need AEC anyways.
Now when you have Microphone.setLoopback(true); and you use AEC to save the day, you will notice that it often kills your own mic feed thinking it to be echo from the other side. Thus back to my original statement.. we never did solve the Echo problem.
In fact i found a issue reported on Adobe forums that has not been responded to. It seems that the issue happens when you use the EnhancedMicrophone api http://forums.adobe.com/thread/899119
Hence i will conclude this is a flash player AEC bug?? If any one may want to comment on this, and thinks otherwise (that AEC works for you), please let me know.

Web Media Live Encoder 1.3
Web Media Live Encoder, introduces the first version of streaming intelligence a technology that lets your swf broadcaster monitor and control different aspects of broadcast quality automatically. So now you can stop worrying about making best use of your webcam settings for online broadcasting for both RTMP and P2P protocols.
Web Media Live Encoder provides auto *bandwidth detection and manual preset selection to help you select the best possible quality for broadcast. If however you still get lost, don’t worry! WMLE’s AutoSense feature will invoke the streaming intelligence to your rescue. And as you sit back and engage yourself in a exciting an fun-filled broadcast session, WMLE will adjust your broadcast quality in real-time to make your broadcast experience an impact.
Most web-cam software on the web, just apply quality setting one time before the broadcast begins. Some are even worse to have same setting for all users… imagine that!! However we believe that people and their environments are unique in many ways. Further they evolve continually as life changes every moment. Considering this WMLE’s AutoSense makes special adjustments for each broadcast moment in real-time… making each each video motion a memorable portrait.
