I am writing an amf plugin . I want to debug it during live packet capture. Is it possible?

Sure, although processing the captured packets will necessarily be inhibited while you have the program halted in the debugger.
Due to the vagaries of network transmissions I think that attempting to do so will make your debugging much more difficult. Why not just capture the amf traffic to a file, then in your debug session load the capture file. This will allow you to debug the dissector in a much more controlled fashion as you know what packets should be there (by prior inspection of the raw packet data before dissection).
