One Step Red5 Installation with Kaltura CE3

by Jason

For CE4 and Red 5 Integration video toturials read: Webcam Recording Using Red5 and RTMP and Live Stream using Red5 

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.

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:

cd /home/ubuntu
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.]

Broadcast live using the free Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder (or use your favorite live streaming application)

Red5 adds three important features to CE 3:

  • Record and playback from the webcam
  • Stream videos using RTMP
  • Broadcast multiple live streams

For a list of known issues with the Red5+CE3 integration, see the bottom of our Red5 Integration guide.

We hope you’ll test out the Red5/CE3 integration and provide feedback in our forums, and post bug reports on our bug tracker.

Kaltura in the Amazon Cloud

by Jason

We’ve been listening to our community. And besides an easier & faster installation flow for the Kaltura CE, we’ve read on the KalturaCE forums, Facebook, and surveys that you want Amazon Cloud Images.

So we’re pleased to offer two Amazon Machine Images (AMIs), a 32-bit image and a 64-bit image, pre-configured with Ubuntu Linux 10.4 LTS and the newly released Kaltura Community Edition version 3.0, ready to launch:

ami-a80ef9c1 – This is Kaltura CE 3.0 running on 32-bit Ubuntu 10.4 LTS
ami-ae0ef9c7  – This is Kaltura CE 3.0 running on 64-bit Ubuntu 10.4 LTS

[May 12th, 2011 update to remove ssh keys from image]

ami-d8ad53b1 – This is Kaltura CE 3.0 running on 32-bit Ubuntu 10.4 LTS
ami-9cad53f5  – This is Kaltura CE 3.0 running on 64-bit Ubuntu 10.4 LTS

The 32-bit image is targeted for economical sites that have mild bandwidth and horsepower requirements.  For more powerful sites, the 64-bit image can be used on Amazon’s largest machine sizes. The goal is to make it as easy as possible to launch your own Kaltura Community Edition server and be productive immediately: uploading, converting, transcoding, monetizing, analyzing, and syndicating your media assets.
Available initially in Amazon’s US-east availability zone, these images use Amazon’s Elastic Block Store (EBS) which ensures that your data will still be intact if there’s a system crash. You can choose to launch a single 32-bit server with 1 virtual core and 1.7gig of RAM, all the way up to multiple 64-bit servers with 8 virtual cores and 68gig of RAM each, and up to a terabyte of EBS media storage for each server.

Only a few simple tasks are necessary to be and running (you should have access to an SMTP mail server or get a free account at SendGrid.com or another SMTP vendor).

Complete installation details are available on our documentation page. If you’d like to learn how to use Amazon EC2, refer to the EC2 Getting Started Guide.
