Hot on the heels of our Red5 Integration Guide is an even easier way to get Red5 up and running with Kaltura Community Edition 3 (CE 3). We are pleased to offer an Amazon EC2 AMI with Red5 1.0 beta pre-installed.
ami-8005f3e9 – This is Kaltura CE 3.0 with Red5 running on 32-bit Ubuntu 10.4 LTS
[May 12th, 2011 update. A security update has been made to this AMI to remove ssh keys left in the image. the new image is below]
ami-3aac5253 – This is Kaltura CE 3.0 with Red5 running on 32-bit Ubuntu 10.4 LTS
Once an instance is running, you just finish the CE 3 install as usual (see our Amazon EC2 Guide for details) and then simply perform two more commands:
sudo bash kalred5.sh
That’s all there is to it. Red5 is now running and integrated with CE 3 adding significant functionality to your Kaltura installation [our Red5 Integration Guide has been updated with these instructions.]
Red5 adds three important features to CE 3:
- Record and playback from the webcam
- Stream videos using RTMP
- Broadcast multiple live streams
