Setting up Red5 for simple streaming

by on Jul.09, 2008, under Red5

If all you want to do is stream videos, setting up Red5 is fairly simple.

  1. Install JRE 5 or 6
  2. Install Red5 (
  3. Create a folder your Red5 “webapps” folder, name it what you like such as “vod”
  4. Create a folder within that called “streams”
  5. Place your flv files in the streams folder
  6. Access your streams using rtmp:// where “” is your Red5 host, “vod” is the folder you created in step 3, and “test” relates to an example “test.flv” file in that folder

It’s that simple.
