It goes without saying that a large part of website and application hosting is kept on the cloud rather than physical hardware. The architecture of the internet is becoming, quite literally, more virtual. Why Virtual Hosting? Quite simply, virtual hosting is easier, more scalable, and generally more cost efficient. Since virtual servers are maintained by the company that hosts them, there is no need for a dedicated server maintenance team saving time as well as money. When dealing with scaling, it's much easier to spin up a new server instance, than installing a brand new bare metal server. Additionally, that…

Parking meters, deadlines, anniversaries; if not addressed within the appropriate timeframe, those things may cause you considerable problems (some more than others).

The web isn’t as simple as it used to be. The days of uploading a simple HTML page you coded in Notepad (or BBEdit) and uploaded via FTP to your WebServer are over. Even JavaScript isn’t the simple language it started as (who’s using the once ubiquitous JQuery these days?). The modern day JavaScript development process introduces a slurry of new requirements ranging from pulling code libraries from NPM to transpiling from ES6 so older browsers can interpret your code. Further increasing to the debatable chaos, the myriad of JS frameworks available can even baffle and overwhelm…

Unlike some other streaming solutions, we don’t just focus on the server side or the client side–we provide the whole stack. While this provides a tremendous amount of power and flexibility, it does make it more difficult to set up. A few of our customers were confused on how to get started, so we consolidated four of our guides in one place to make it more streamlined and simple to follow. This guide will get you quickly up and running with the Red5 Pro server and the client-side SDKs. Get the new Quick Start Guide and we look…
