Red5 Remoting

Remoting a facility by which a client can call a server method in a  request response fashion. Unlike RTMP remoting services are performed using AMF over HTTP/HTTPS. Red5 can act as both a RTMP server as well as a HTTP/HTTPS remoting server. Remoting enables non rtmp clients to access Red5 methods.  A very practical approach would be to request chat room user count for example. Using remoting you can request such data without consuming too much server resources as in a RTMP connection. You can also create chat programs with simple amf-polling as well. Remoting also lets you sync data types over both ends (client-server) (more…)
