Ready to use – Red5 streamer application

Following Red5 Developer series from Dominick Accattato, and a neat explaination from on CustomFilenameGenerator, Here is a ready to use, fully capable pre-compiled Red5 application for anyone who wishes to set up Flash streaming with Red5 , but does not know where to start.

The application is tested on Red5 0.8. to use it in 0.9 you may have to remove the bandwidth-setting code in main Application class and recompile it.

How to configure Stream/Record paths:

1. Edit the file file red5-web.xml in the WEB-INF directory

2. Move down to the “streamFilenameGenerator” bean definition and adjust values of recordPath and playbackPath as you wish.

3. To use absolute paths, set “absolutePath” property as true.
