Flash :: Code Own Socket Server Or Use Red5/ElectroServer On Amazon EC2?

Apr 17, 2010

I've been thinking for a long time about working on a multiplayer game in Flash. I need updates frequently enough that ajax requests won't work so I need to use a socket server. The system will eventually have enough objects/players that I would consider it an MMO. I would like to set up a scalable system on Amazon's EC2. (Which probably effects my choice of server) This architecture would hopefully allow the game to grow without many changes over time. (Using a domain decomposition technique or something similar)

Heres my internal debate:Should I

a. Code my own socket server in C++ or Java?

b. Use the free and open source Red5 socket server for Flash?

or c. Pay the licensing fees and go for Electroserver?

I consider myself a decent developer, but am at an impasse as to what road to go down. I'm not sure if I, could develop/would need, the features of one of the prepackaged socket servers.

I'm also not sure if the prepackaged servers would work well in an Amazon EC2 environment and take full advantage of its features.

Serve MP3's Using RED5 Flash Server?

Apr 19, 2010

I have installed RED5 flash server and 12 hours after installing it, I still cannot serve a simple MP3 file. So far, If I have understood correctly, you need to create and compile a Java application to simply serve a file!?.... Which seems a little over-complicated to be honest. Never touched Java.I have used the oflademo however cannot change the directory.I basically need RED5 to serve MP3 files from a directory (which i will specify), I will be calling the files as normal in a JW player playlist.

Flash :: Setting Up Amazon Web Services Media Interactive Server

Apr 24, 2011

I've been trying to set up an instance of Flash Media Interactive Server on Amazon Web Services for an AVChat (avchat.net). I signed up for the service here:[URL] I have some simple questions on getting it started --- namely: do I create the FMIS instance myself now that I've signed up, or do I need to go ahead and create it? I see under the EC2 tab I can create an instance under 'Community AMIs' for adobe-flashmediaserver-useast/fms- t.xml Is this what I want? I realize this is a bit of a noob question.

once installed what I'm trying to do is to add a folder for AVChat into /opt/macromedia/fms/applications/ ([URL]). I am assuming that once I do have this instance running, I can move/modify files on the server instance.

Flash - Red5 / Adobe Server Live Streaming

Jun 9, 2010

Is it possible to capture/encode a video file on a slow machine, then upload it live to a Red5 or Adobe Streaming server, and have that server stream to file live to flash clients? If so, what protocol is used to stream the data from the encoding machine to the Red5 / Adobe server? I see a lot of things about RTMP, but am I correct that this protocol is used between Streaming Server and Flash client, but not from encoding machine to Streaming Server?

Flash :: Send A Video Stream To A Red5 Server Using Flex?

Jul 2, 2010

I'm trying to send a video stream to a Red5 server using Flex.

My Red5 setup seems to work for remote method invocations and shared objects, but I've yet to succeed in getting video working.

This is the AS3 code that connects to Red5:

# connect to RTMP server
netConnection.addEventListener(NetStatusEvent.NET_STATUS, netStatusHandler);
# omitted code for waiting for connection success, and setting up shared


As said, note that the Red5 setup works flawlessly for remote method invocations and shared objects, but not for video which is strange.

For further audio data listening I need to know what audio codec Flash player uses to send data to the Red5 server.Transport doesn't recieve any metadata packets with detailed information about media codec. All I know for now from "connect" message is that publishing side supports the set of audio and video codecs.

Media Server :: P2P Settings For Flash Media Server On Amazon AWS?

Aug 19, 2011

I'm trying to develop a p2p (RTMFP) webcam chat application with AS3 and FMS. For test purposes I've been using "rtmfp://p2p.rtmfp.net" and now I'll use FMS on Amazon AWS.hat I couldn't understand is which application type should I use on FMS? There is four preconfigured application types on FMS, these are live, livepkgr, multicast and vod. I guess live or multicast but I cannot choose between them, I'm a little bit confused. Or maybe I don't have to setup any application?My application scenerio is; a user will connect to FMS and webservice and will get other person's farID from webservice and will be on audio/video chat with remote side as he sends stream. (with one person) Pretty much like sample Cirrus application.Also I've another issue, I also want to publish one person's (consultant in my case) video to several people (customers) at the same time (one to many), customers won't publish any video or audio, they'll only watch and hear consultant. Can I use RTMFP and P2P for that? I guess it will insanely increase publishers bandwidth needs, so should I use streaming on FMS and let customers to get stream from FMS

Javascript :: Alternatives To Red5 Recorder And Server For Webcam Video Capture?

Feb 26, 2011

I'm looking for a flash script/library to capture video and audio from a webcam and then somehow get a saved flv to my encoding server. I'm not looking for something that will host the videos for me. I just need something simple to capture and then upload. I really want this to be open source and free.

I've done a fair amount of searching and it seems that most of what i can find is either a full blown service with hosting, or the red 5 suite. I've been trying for a day to get something going on with Red5, but honestly I haven't done any flash or java development in over 6 years and this seems way too complicated when all i really want is a flash object i can stick on a webpage.
