This post assumes you have a working Kaltura CE 4.0 server. To easily install CE4 check out “How to setup Kaltura CE 4.0 VMWare image in 15 minutes“.
Welcome to the second video tutorial in our video posts series on installing and using Kaltura CE 4.0.
In this post, we show how to use a webcam to capture video using the Kaltura Contribution Wizard in CE 4 and the open source Red5 media server. As always we try to keep the knowledge and steps as general as we can so the guide will fit any Kaltura installation (VMWare, Cloud, Install, On Prem, etc.).
Note, that different Linux distributions (Debian or Fedora) behave differently and often use different commands. While the below installation steps are the same, the specific commands may vary between distros (for example, in CentOS we use yum to install packages, while in Ubuntu the command will most likely be apt-get).
This video tutorial will guide you through installation of the Red5server and its configuration in Kaltura CE 4.0 for enabling webcam recording.
