New Release Schedule

Red5 Pro is always seeking to find better ways to deliver practical, low latency software to suit all your live-streaming needs. The process of ensuring that Red5 Pro remains a market driving leader requires constant innovation; not only improving our product but streamlining our process as well. With this in mind, we are advancing our development cycle to a bi-monthly release schedule. This will allow our Development Team more time to craft enhancements and additions while ensuring that our QA Team can test those changes even more thoroughly. By expanding our process, this improvement will (quite logically) improve Red5 Pro…

March is traditionally the month where people start breaking their New Year Resolutions. Not Red5 Pro. We've persevered to reach our goal of improving the performance of our WebRTC implementation. While some abandoned their treadmills, we slimmed down our CPU usage to make Red5 Pro more scalable. As home gyms (still unassembled) were hidden in closets, we strengthened our security features by adding connection parameters to secure your streams. Of course, we set the bar pretty high for ourselves so we didn't stop after improving WebRTC. We added support for setting framerate Android devices and implemented shared objects with iOS…

Stream It Your Way

Since the onset of the Industrial Revolution, today's workforce has become increasingly focused and specialized (especially in the tech field) Sometimes, it can appear that you have just two options; learn a whole lot about one thing or learn a tiny bit about lots of things. Either way, it's a fact that you can't do it all. Just ask anyone who has uttered the ill-fated words, "Well, I saw it on T.V. once. How hard can it be?" However, the collaboration of a diverse and cohesive team can deliver superlative results by leveraging the skills and specialties of individuals.…
