Red5 Pro Version 5.2.0

Fall is here in New England. The leaves are changing colors and will soon be falling from the trees. In this spirit, we decided that now would be a good time to drop a new release. Introducing Red5 Pro V 5.2.0! Get more streams per server with WebRTC optimizations. Just take a look at our new benchmarks and you'll see that we added an extra 100 connections! Of course, slimming down WebRTC also means even lower latency. Also, we added a much-requested feature: scheduling. Instead of having to manually spin up the necessary server instances, you can schedule…

The biggest advantage is the creation of a private Slack channel which allows you to communicate directly with our support staff. Many of our software engineers built the Red5 Pro software themselves and have been in…

Luckily for you, this allowed our team member, Rajdeep, to add a second part to our Windows installation guides: Windows Installation with SSL. In addition to the Developer Series walkthroughs, these guides will serve as a valuable resource. They are intended to go along with our provided documentation so you will not hear a voiceover. Unfortunately, that means that your laptop speakers are still working and you can't use that as an excuse to get…

It sounds so simple. Send a live stream from one device to another. What live streaming software does is rather straightforward. Send a stream from the broadcaster to the subscriber. How it actually does that, is quite a different story. How so? There's a lot more behind that broadcast button then you think. The live streaming software has to separately capture the audio and video from their prospective sources and encode the inputs into compressed codecs so that it can be implemented as a transport stream to be delivered over a specific protocol. That protocol is then sent over a…
