August is here and has brought the full heat of summer with it. Rather than broiling on stovetop sidewalks, we've decided to stay indoors. As such, one of our team members, Rajdeep, created a series of tutorials. Even though we already have a few walkthroughs in the Developer Series, these focus specifically on Windows installations.

With great power comes great responsibility. OpenGL (while not a superpower per se) is still a mighty library capable of great things. However, like a Hulk temper tantrum, a lack of control can have bad results. With this in mind, we would like to share some tips about working with OpenGL and surface layers so you can harness that power. We want to help you build successful applications and don't like it when you're angry. Notes about Android and Surface Layers: Surfaces, and related GLSurfaces, allow images to be drawn directly to the Android window. These surfaces are used by…

Red5 Pro is now an official Google partner! Yes, that Google. You know, that big company with a giant, globally dispersed, cloud computing platform (among many, many other things). Those guys. With lower bandwidth costs, fast VM spin-up times and an ever-expanding network of servers, Google is a perfect partner for Red5 Pro. The best part? This means good things for current Red5 Pro users, the live-streaming community, and those that have yet to switch over. To begin with, our autoscaling solution will get even better with faster response times and cheaper bandwidth costs. Additionally, Google features a blazing fast…
