Open source video revolution – OSMF on Red5

JWFLV Player vs Flow Player vs Strobe:

Strobe Player:

Note that in some cases flash player may ask you to accept ssl certificate. this happens only with red5 running the OSMF player

OSMF is a move by Adobe which clarifies how much flash is towards openness. Whether your needs are to setup a video-tube site or live event broadcasting, OSMF and Red5 provide the perfect package to go fully open source. No more cumbersome domain licenses. No more expensive RTMP solutions. Take up Red5 , download Adobe strobe playback component and go live – completely open source. (more…)
