Webcam Recording On Kaltura CE4 Using Red5

by Roni Cohen

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.

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.

ami-8005f3e9 – This is Kaltura CE 3.0 with Red5 running on 32-bit Ubuntu 10.4 LTS

[May 12th, 2011 update. A security update has been made to this AMI to remove ssh keys left in the image. the new image is below]

ami-3aac5253  – This is Kaltura CE 3.0 with Red5 running on 32-bit Ubuntu 10.4 LTS

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

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.
