How does Red5 work + How red5 works ?


What is red5 server?

Red5 is an Open Source Flash Server written in Java that supports:

a)Streaming Audio/Video : flv, mp3, s4v,mp4,aac, m4a
b) Recording Client Streams (FLV only)
c) Shared Objects
d) Live Stream Publishing : Sorenson, VP6,h.264,Nelly Moser, MP3, Speex, AAC , NSV
e) Remoting

How does it work?

Red5 server converts the video file to the flash file and we everyone knows that flash files play instantly once someone accesses it. Here when we request or select a particular video, the video script will send the video(stream the video) to red5 server. Red5 will convert the video file to flash and sends the output to the video script to display on the browser. Lot of video scripts are being used now a days like dolphin, videowhisper etc for the site. You can configure the admin panel using the server's IP and port details.

You have the opportunity to test most of RED5 servers functions at this site. For example, webcam and audio/video streaming, clients webcam stream recording, live stream publishing, multi user video chat - you must be logged in as a site member to your account for testing.

I have published an article to install red5 on linux server. Here it is :


Try and take care :)
