WebRTC is enjoying an ever-expanding influence over the tech market in general and live-streaming specifically. From increased security to plug-in free communication, we've covered the many benefits of WebRTC. However, not all platforms support it. As a server-side media processor, Red5 Pro can effectively handle streams from different sources and networks so that video and audio sessions can be launched with any device. This is why Red5 Pro built failover support into our WebRTC implementation. When publishing or subscribing with a WebRTC application, any platform that does not support WebRTC will failover to Flash (RTMP) or HLS. So how does…

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. At Red5 Pro, we're also focused on the future and strive to build it (albeit more concretely). 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?). 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…

It's a WebRTC World

It doesn't seem that long (for some of us at least) but 2017 marks the 10 year anniversary of the iPhone. 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. All it takes is the push of a button on a device that fits in your pocket. Of course, the iPhone was just the beginning, as success entices competition and competition inspires innovation. Since then, technology has…
