Red5 Installation

Red5 / Wowza / RTMP Server Installation

Red5 InstallationOur server install team can setup latest stable Red5 (or Wowza if you have a license) on your virtual private server or dedicated server. This also includes installation and configuration of VideoWhisper rtmp side applications as needed. Other java red5 applications can also be installed but we can't include any guarantee for 3rd party applications. This will be done by trusted personel that also handles our servers.

Optional: Our staff can deploy other rtmp server types (Wowza Streaming Engine / Adobe Flash Media Interactive Server) instead of Red5 if you have a valid license key for your server.

Our server administrators can also provide subscription based RTMP Server Administration that includes this service.

Our hosting plans and dedicated servers already include rtmp server installed (with full mode license for Wowza) so this is not required.

Warning: Before setting up your own server, make sure it meets the hardware requirements (like bitrate, network connectivity) for expected usage volume. For quick setup, high reliability and performance, we recommend our plans and servers, specially desgined with such usage in mind (network, hardware, software, configuration and administration).

Required Details

Send server details in a ticket:

  • IP and root password for linux servers / administrator details for windows servers
  • also send webmin/whm or other SSH settings controlling admin panel you have (if any) if additional changes are required to access ssh (like registering an ip, allowing access to all).

Change the password when everything is done and tested.

Install can usually be provided on these distributions:

  • Linux: Centos 5+ (recommended), Debian 5+, Fedora 11+, Ubuntu 9+ - via ssh root access
  • Windows: 2000, XP, Vista, 7 - via remote desktop access

Recommended Server

Most important specification for streaming video is connectivity. Make sure your server has a big connection (1000Mbps preferred) and is physically installed in a reputable datacenter well connected to your target client networks. See hardware requirements.

VPS servers can be used for development phase or low traffic sites. For hight traffic you should opt for a full dedicated server or shared plan optimised for video streaming.

VPS vs Dedicated Server

A VPS can be used for live video streaming project development and testing but are not recommended at production times.
Dedicated servers are recommended. See hosting type requirements .

Multiple VPS (Virtual Private Servers) share same server with same hardware (disk, cpu, memory, connection).
While resulting performance issues are not visible when serving http pages, frame loss/latency/temporary freezing can occur in live streams on a VPS, depending on how the other VPS on same server use the shared physical resources and temporary lock these.

Financial Benefits

By having your own Red5 server installed, streaming hosting costs are shrinked. Commercial alternatives for unlimited streaming, interactivity and connections involve considerable licensing costs, like Wowza Media Server Pro at $995/license or Adobe Flash Media Interactive Server at $4500. Red5 is free, open source and continuosly improved.

Managed Hosting

If you prefer avoiding the hassle of setting up, managing and securing a vps or dedicated server or you lack the time and/or experience for this, we can also provide hosting plans with:
+ RTMP hosting
+ CPanel web hosting
+ FFMPEG with Flash & HTML5 conversion codecs


Our team does not assume any responsibility for the changes done on the server and success of tasks. We also do not offer any guarantee that the installation will be successful due to the big number of linux flavors, pre-installed software, configuration options. If installation can't be provided we'll provide a refund as listed in the Moneyback Guarantee.

Moneyback Guarantee

If our server install team can't provide the service in 1 week after receiving good access details, you can request a refund for the installation fee.
