I don't have Flash Builder and have no intention to purchase extra software I don't need in order to remove some one else's ads from my web site.
Please send me a copy of the software I purchased with the ad removed.
We tested on different servers like Bluehost, HostGator, RackSpace, Hosting Marketers, etc. The last one offers Red5 in their package. I am not sure about the support quality, all the above should be good if not excellent. We had our Red5 versions tested and hosted (courtesy) by Hosting Marketers for about six months, I can recommend them. Stable service, excellent support.
Regarding the multimedia stream: it is not going trough Cirrus, it is peer-to-peer, meaning the chat partners are connected directly (read about p2p). The Adobe Cirrus server is just handling these connections.
Yes, I understood that the video was P2P but absent the cirrus the software did not have a method to make those connections. This is why I wanted to be sure that Cirrus was implemented and absent documentation for this script there was no means for me to know how this was being done.
This program really should contain a full set of documents on setup and configuration as part of the distribution or at lease a link to documentation on the web site, not just a forum.
Still unanswered are:
How do I show number of connections on my server?
How do I implement ads or other functions? ( Note: I know I can use frames to include Google ads etc. but what if I want an occasional ad to appear in the chat window? Source of image? Duration? Frequency?
What if I want to alter the size of chat windows.
Using the developer's own key raises another question about co-mingling of users. Are my users kept separate from other users who may be using the same script but on a different server?
Thanks…where do I at least view the key that is being used? Having just read the most recent information on the Adobe's Cirrus site it seems to indicate that to utilize Cirrus I had to register and receive a developer key which I did.
Do I assume you have coded in your own developer key somewhere in the code? If so, where is that?
How do I test that my video is streaming through Cirrus and not through my own server.
THIS IS IMPORTANT due to bandwidth issues. :shy:
I have followed all this with no luck.
My chat works but still seems to be finding a bunch of users from some one else's server because mine is not even published yet?
What this does not explain is where to insert by Adobe Developer code and the URL to their cirrus server? I have asked this several times and so far it appears no one knows??? :huh:
Is there an actual set of documentations on installing this for Random Chat?
No users, using Cirrus ( formerly Stratus )
Where can I find step-by-step to install SCV on my server? I cannot seem to find any documentation and none was included in the zip file I purchased.
I don't see any place in the config files provided to specify by Adobe developer code to connect to Cirrus and no documentation makes it hard to guess what to do.
I have: scv_videochat.si.0.9.178.zip and using the random VideoChat.zip for installation.
Is there a missing link to documentation for this program? :huh:
If you already have the commercial version, edit config.xml and set the web-service to "local"
I changed XML but I still get other users who are accessing the chat. How is it I am having people already using a chat that has not yet been published yet?
I assumed no one would be there at all since I am just now setting this up.
I also don't understand how Cirrus is supposed to function if I don't provide my developer key and the URL provided me by Adobe?
SVC is using Cirrus (RTMFP), the communication module is inside the SVC0.7 library, a similar (open source) method can be found here: http://code.google.com/p/video-chat/source/browse/trunk/src/JabberCam.as
- the code on google code uses both Cirrus (RTMFP) and Red5 (RTMP), SVC is newer and a better approach, based on the same idea
Thanks for the link…what do I do with it now that I saved a copy as JammerCam.as
2000+ lines of code. Where does it go and where do I supply my Adobe codes?
I can't find the documentation for installation and set up?
The title of this forum topic would suggest the documentation could be found here but all I can find is a few posts asking questions.
It was not included in the zip file?
Please post the link to documentation.
Thanks for that. I installed Red5 prior to having enough research but can remove or disable Red5 if it is not necessary for operation of chat.
As for Cirrus I find the Adobe site very confusing to find anything. I would like to use Cirrus and have a developer key but I cannot find any instructions or source to download Cirrus files to install.
Any clue where I can learn how to install Cirrus and get it connected to the RVC 8?
Question: How do I test it to know if it is installed correctly? I have a working admin login but no clue what to do with it.
I am trying to add the RVC 8 but even though it loads on the site, provides the popup to input a user name, nothing else happens when clicking start.
Also, the config instructions indicate I can turn of the login but I cannot find those options in config file?
Some people have banned me from my chat for 180 minutes, how can I access back into my site to test it :-) Is it possible to make it that I'm not bannable?
If you can try a proxy which will provide you with a different IP address.
Good day all.
I am not certain which of the topics this should be in since it touches on many topics. I am trying to learn more of the technical aspects of implementing random video chat on my server and would appreciate any feedback from anyone who has been doing this.
My techs are currently installing the Red5 package on my server but I have questions regarding Red5 ( some already posted in their forum ) but more about RVC and how it interacts with Red5 as it relates to RAM usage and server loading. I have about 150 other sites running and don't want anything that hogs all the resources even though none of those other sites are particularly busy sites.
First am I correct in my understanding that the actual video traffic is peer to peer and does not pass through or consume my bandwidth?
Is the Red5 only providing the Flash support for the actual RVC software for the purposes on managing these P2P connections?
I have seen various comments about RAM including concerns from my server tech who did not fully understand that I would not actually be streaming video from my server. He worried that my 8GB would not be enough. Most commercial hosts selling Red5 offer far less than that.
My goal is ad revenue of course so the more users the better. I understand that takes time but if I hit 30,000 users at once how does this impact server and bandwidth?
I have a new quad core CPU with 8GB Ram and a big pipe to the internet. I pre-pay for a lot of bandwidth but not an unlimited amount. 3x1/2 TB drives two raid one backup.
Any help learning how these work with each other, how much RAM is necessary and any information about server load and bandwidth is most appreciated.
I want to understand what I am getting into with this!
Thanks ! ;)
