We have been working hard on a number of features that we are super excited about including clustering and HLS support. You can get the new release here. Make sure to be signed in with your account first. Also, expect new SDKs to follow soon as well. Cheers!

RED5 PRO SERVER 0.2 RELEASE NOTES

This release has two new features our customers have been requesting.

CLUSTERING
This version of the server allows for configuring servers together to achieve infinite scale. This is the first version of the feature, and is limited to round robin style load balancing of Edge servers to an Origin server. There are many configurations possible with this setup including support for multiple origins, and Edges being able to connect across Origins. If there’s a setup you are looking for but our solution doesn’t seem to support it, please let us know.

OUT OF THE BOX HLS SUPPORT
In addition to clustering, the new server now supports HLS. Where as before you had to install the open source Red5 HLS plugin, Red5 Pro now comes with the feature out of the box. With the feature we also have created an HTML5 example using Video.js that connects to our server via HLS.

Let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing what you do with this!
