Question about current 2.9 features

1. Regarding to the current features, could you please explain to me how Auto next works (sec). I other words, what exactly means these numbers of seconds?
2. What about: $BAN_TIMEOUT = 45; //ban reported user for n minuates. Is that the time that some banned user is preventing to reconnect? How many times a person have to be reported before is going out? What about filtering?
3. The roulette prevents that a couple of person repeat chatting or is just a probability matters?
4. In 2.9 version filtering by age or sex is working?
5. I am a little confused about stable version with Red5. I thought 2.9 is ready for Red5 but your demo jabbercam.com use CRC 2.8 with Red5. Could you please clarify.

1. If you check "Auto Find NEXT", you will be reconnected to the next available partner after the current partner is "next"-ing you. If used in combination with the SpeedChat (auto Next (sec)) feature you will be automatically re-connected after disconnecting. Auto Next (sec) disconnects you automatically from the current partner in 5, 10, 30 or 60 seconds. Manual means you disconnect when you press NEXT.
2. $BAN_TIMEOUT = 45; means the banned user won't be able to connect to other users for 45 minutes (configurable). $NUM_REPORTS_TO_BAN = 9; sets the number of reports needed to ban a user (default is 9).
3. Usually if there are only two people online, the connection is instant. With 3 or more people it can be a bit slower due to the connection-closing and reconnection settings (configurable in the source/set to minimum in v3.0). However if you pressed "Filter", you won't be able to re-connect to the same partner for $FILTER_TIMEOUT = 15; minutes.
4. Yes, Age and Sex filter wasn't changed in the latest releases and it should work fine.
5. This is the most popular question :) All releases work fine with Red5, even the latest 3.0.
The reason we don't use 2.9 and 3.0 is because configuring JDBC is giving a hard time for most non Java developers and the server administrators. Until we cannot provide a comprehensive description (with troubleshooting) on how to prepare Red5 to use Mysql connections properly, we cannot recommend using Red5.
*2.8 does not use MySQL. If you are running in Windows environment, the Red5 solution works for version 2.9 and 3.0 too.
