I have had a busy weekend playing with the Open Source Flash Streaming Server, known as, Red5 !!
It really aims to fill a whole in the market, similar in essence, as Darwin Streaming Server has done for streaming video in the Open Source community.
I managed to follow the instructions- and spent many hours on the #osflash channel hosted on irc.freenode.net. (respect to daTR in particular for all his help and wisdom).
If you are attempting to set this up yourself and get errors in starting compiling or using this server then i recommend taking note in the setup instructions on the red5 website ine the following areas:
- Get the correct JDK form Java ( JDK download page ) normally justuse the “JDK 5.0 Update 9”
If you have or use IRC dont just go in and ask every question you can think of as this will upset people !!
You may think, well how do you know that….. trust me ~:0)
Best of luck – i look forward to hearing about anyone elses experiences
