Red5, first thoughts

As I promised myself, I started to spend some of the time in testing red5 since I’ve read the about the 0.6RC1 release. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to run it on my Windows Vista so I try it on an older Windows XP. Once unpacked the installer I first tested some of the example applications boundled, everything worked fine.. cool, nice, great project indeed!

But then I wanted to migrate one of my FCS2 projects to Red5 in order to test “the real world”. Ok, I need to write in Java? (there’s Python support, but it’s Jython) Cool.. I never seen Java, I thought it was a monster with eight heads 🙂 Got the first Java editor I found on the net, IntelliJIdea (what a wonderful editor indeed! much expensive, but really cool), and started with headache.. But at least, for a newbie like me, it seems to me like editing ActionScript3 files, so it wasn’t so difficult to make things running. I’m still “trying” to re-write the application (with minor changes also in the flash files) but I managed to make remote sharedobjects, streams and remote calls running like in the FCS2 original application and I’m so happy 🙂

Dissertation On Virtual Keyboard I just encounter a couple of time a Windows blue screen error while getting webcam streams (I need to make a snapshot next time) and some human unreadable java exceptions (It’s indeed a my fault) but I think it was a positive beginning after all. Great great compliments to red5 developers!

Red5 with javascript python ruby and coffee?

Red5 (the opensource flash multimedia server) will support server side javascript, Ruby, Python and Java? That’s terrific! Well, it seems the next 0.6 RC1 version of Red5 will do that! The release is scheduled by next Monday and if that’s true I definitively will find the time to look inside it 🙂
