I am just getting started with the Red5 server and wanted to post about my progress as I move forward. I am following a series of video tutorials by Ronny Welter, but thought it might be easier to document some of the steps outside of a video.
I use a mac development environment, so all my writings will be from that perspective. Please keep this in mind and make the necessary changes if you are using a PC.
1 – First, find the latest Red5 release from here: http://www.red5.org/red5-server/ (at the time of writing, I was using 1.0 RC 1)
2 – Download the zip
3 – Rename unzipped folder to Red5
4 – Move it to applications
5 – Launch the server by opening terminal and typing the following:
This will launch the Red5 server. To test and make sure it’s working, go to http://localhost:5080/ in your browser, and you should see the server page. Success!
