Yesterday, Amazon Web Services experienced an outage in its eastern U.S. region. So that, quite obviously, caused a stir. It was a blackout. Like, medieval, Dark Ages blackout. Everything was broken, people were crying, there was looting… OK. Maybe it wasn't that bad but it sure did mess things up. As such, some developers could not sign up for a license and reached out to us to see if there was anything we could do. So in all fairness, we decided to extend our original deadline out a couple of days. Any developers still on the free developer…

The new year is all about self-improvement and looking forward. As such, our developers caught the spirit and churned out a new release for both server and mobile SDK. They improved the performance of our autoscale solution and load balancing stream manager, added Flash to HLS audio support (so you can video call your parents more often this year), and updated the mobile example applications. Having already started down the path of self-improvement, it's time to continue looking forward to future improvements. What do you want to see added to Red5 Pro? Let us know! Release 2.1.0 -…

In addition, we’ve added a recording option to the live/broadcast.…

This is in direct response to how you folks are using our SDKs with things like IoT audio devices and music streaming apps. of course all apps will benefit from the majority of the fixes in this release. We've been…

We are excited to announce the new 1.2.0 release of Red5 Pro. In addition to quite a few bug fixes, this version adds the ability to deploy clusters on top of AWS or Google Compute Engine that automatically expand and contract depending on the load. We call this feature Autoscaling. Autoscaling is a huge feature because it allows you, our developers, to deploy a scalable, low-latency, live streaming platform on the cloud platform of your choice. And even more important--once you have it configured, you can just leave it alone and it will take care of scaling for…
