It's estimated that about 65% of the general population are visual learners. In a visual learner's brain, words are converted into pictures (the opposite is true for auditory learners). With this in mind, we are excited to introduce an ongoing series of video tutorials! These guides, along with all our documentation, will demonstrate a variety of features and help you get Red5 Pro up and running. Below are the first two videos, but be on the lookout for more topics such as iOS and Android Custom Applications. I will let our CTO, Dominick Accattato, take it from here: Getting Started…

Jetpacks have been a mainstay for starry-eyed dreamers and futurists for a long time. Despite the occasional story from some engineer a-la stunt-double, that potential continues unrealized, a mere daydream of all those frustrated commuters stuck in traffic.

As such, we actively appraise and adopt ground-breaking technologies that have both real-world impact and promising potential. Take for example, our WebRTC implementation. WebRTC has been gaining widespread use and has made large strides in creating interoperability between browsers. With Apple's progress on integrating WebRTC…

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?).

Further increasing to the debatable chaos, the myriad of JS frameworks available can even baffle and overwhelm…

The past decade has seen sweeping shifts in how we communicate with each other and interact with our surroundings. While the 20th century ended with the innovation of the internet, the 21st has brought that revolutionary technology, literally, right into our hands.

Since then, technology has…

Live video streaming is taking off like crazy, and you want to get in on this new technology by building your own cat streaming app. "Periscope for Cats will be the next big thing" you say. You start looking into what's out there for a software developer to build on, and immediately are inundated with way too many choices. One of the biggest points of confusion we see from newcomers to live stream programming is: "what is the best protocol to use for my app?". Just this week I wrote an answer to this really great question on Quora. Between…
