RTMP Server in the era of HTTP video streaming

Given the growing popularity
and support of HTTP video streaming, it may be tempting to consider
Real Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP) streaming obsolete. But in many
cases, working with RTMP server
is still very meaningful. As soon as Macromedia first pronounced RTMP
with Flash Player 6 in 2002, the brand new Macromedia Flash
Communication Server MX (FCS) required to stream the evolving Flash
Video (FLV) format, stream was live or VOD.

However,
for FCS, licensing costs were high (up to $5,000 per server), and as
a result, CDN costs were high than other proprietary streaming
formats. Some manufacturers in the industry have called RTMP
streaming costs a “Flash tax”. But Flash Player has been a
ubiquitous introduction to desktop browsers for well over a decade,
much larger than other plug-ins. Though, streaming server technology
has traditionally been harder for web developers to implement, and
simpler HTTP delivery has mostly been easier and more cost-effective.
In 2003, Macromedia enabled Flash Player 7 to support HTTP delivery
of FLV files, allowing integrators to use standard web server
technology to deploy online video.

So
in many ways, RTMP as a VOD transport delivery has not been a
requirement for web video for more than a decade. As a video solution
architect, I think of business requirements as the leader in most
audio video decisions. And still, in 2014, RTMP is the de facto
standard for the following use cases:

Publishing
live streams from software/hardware encoders:

Almost all streaming devices support RTMP to publish to CDN providers
and streaming servers. Some native mobile applications also use RTMP
libraries to publish live video from their mobile camera.

Near-instant
search/playback
:
One of the benefits of RTMP streaming is its enhanced search
capability. With real-time streaming, the player can search anywhere
in the video with less buffering than HTTP delivery. However, to
enjoy this feature, you need a Flash Player on your desktop and as
such, it is not possible in mobile browsers. HTML5 browsers use HTTP
domain requests to facilitate faster searching of VOD files.

Content
Protection
: RTMP
Server
can facilitate different levels of content protection, from
obfuscation to true DRM. RTMP streams are not stored for playback on
a desktop browser.

Adaptive
Streaming
: One of
the preferred uses of RTMP is adaptive streaming playback, where we
provide the video player with more bitrates and content resolutions,
providing the best resolution at the current network speed. Some HTTP
adaptive streaming technologies, such as HLS and MPEG-DASH, allow
similar delivery, but RTMP may be more responsive to switching one
bitrate to another. Unfortunately, there is no standard for HTTP
adaptive streaming between HTML5 video-enabled browsers. As such, the
Flash-based display of adaptive streaming is still a requirement for
adaptive streaming.

Live
Streaming Playback
:
While live streams do not need to be adaptive, compressed video
segments apply the same principle to all live streaming playback. For
desktop playback within the browser, virtually every live streaming
event requires a video player that supports Flash-based rendering and
RTMP playback. Apple Safari on iOS natively supports HLS, and
luckily, all modern streaming servers, including the Wowza Streaming
Engine, support RTMP and HLS compression.

rtmp server
rtmp server

The requirement for a Live
Streaming Flash Player will only change if MPEG-DASH appears
everywhere as Flash currently. If Internet Explorer 8, 9 and 10
support is required to install live streaming, then RTMP streaming is
still required. Also, if you need a delay close to zero in a live
stream, then HTTP streaming will almost certainly not meet your needs
while RTMP is capable; HTTP mechanisms require that multiple packets
be collected on the server before being sent to the video player.

In
summary, if your video workflow involves live streaming or any kind
of packaged video installation, RTMP is the key to a successful video
experience. HTTP delivery has already replaced most Flash VOD
installs on video, but HTTP video can’t handle all RTMP video use
cases.

Another
important setup on Red5 Server is the Python Hosting offered to all
hosting customers, with python cpanel hosting the advantage is
cheaper and easier to install and run python scripts on a normal
hosting. With Python
Hosting
and rtmp server the customer can really start a
webmasters and increase a number of usages to host python scripts or
even video chat or live streaming.

As
my university professor used to say the computers language for the
next 50 years will be python, fast, easier with multiple modules
which allow any developer to start an application running python is a
few short hours.

What is the difference between HTTP and RTMP streaming? When should we use RTMP streaming?

The port, the door to the outside internet. The http uses port 80 or 443, nowadays https, most sites now have https instead of http . for example http://quora.com

try quora.com:443 it will work

now for the rtmp it uses port 1935

try quora.com:1935 it will not work.

quora is not a rtmp server. the rtmp is used for media servers like live videostreaming.

So if you could use rtmp to broadcast live it would be great because the delay broadcasting and receiving the video transmission on rtmp is good, just 1 or 2 seconds of delay. while if you just use a normal http server for live streaming the delay is much higher sometimes up to 25 seconds.

BUT, most firewalls or browsers will not allow the port 1935 to be open, or the plugin use which is called flash from adobe is not acceptable anymore. that means the viewer using a purely rtmp server will not be able to see the transmission.

But there are still uses for rtmp server, and it is like this, the broadcaster connects from his location to the server with a rtmp and then the rtmp server converts the stream to another protocol called HLS (https live streaming) so we back on port 80 or 443 and then the transmission can be viewed by nearly all devices. You can see a sketch at the site RTMP Server | RTMP to HLS And HTML5 Player and you can even order a free demo and test yourself broadcasting live.

Going back to the ports check http://rtmp-server.com:1935/ it works! they using wowza which is special server for live streaming. you can more on this at their site Wowza Live Streaming Software

red5 news and red5 servers

Red5 is a media server created with Java language. It is a free open source software but recently a new version Red5 Pro came out developed by the same people, this new version supports streaming to mobiles, Android or iOS, which red5 does not. The Red5 Pro is commercial product and costs $55 per server.

A media server allows Flash based applications connect to it using Real Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP). The server can send and receive data to and from the connected users who have a flash player installed. The server also allows users to receive and publish streams. This permits video chat applications, live streaming and even ondemand video streaming.

Most common Video chat software’s are:
1- Avchat
2- Videowhisper
3- Prochatrooms
4- Gchats

For live streaming the necessary tool if you already have a server with red5 installed is an encoder, an encoder is the software that will connect your computer to the red5 server using the RTMP, which your server provider will give you.
1- FMLE, it is an free Adobe product and does a good job.
2- Wirecast, it is an expensive commercial product of very high quality, absolutely necessary if you starting a TV station.

Although red5 is a free product many people prefer to use Wowza Streaming Engine or Adobe Flash Media Server which are commercial software’s and can be quite expensive, the FMS costs $4500 per server. The reason is that the developers of red5 although have created a wonderful system did not spend much time with tutorials and instructions on how to install and manage a red5 server, for this reason if you searching for a red5 server we suggest you pick a web host which specializes on red5 servers and red5 shared hosting.

1- Red5 Servers relatively cheap red5 servers starting at $15 a month.
2- Red5 Hosting, Hosting Marketers, a web host for experienced webmasters, it is the oldest hosting company specialized on Video and media servers, they also offer Wowza Streaming Engine on its shared plans. They have a very experienced customer support and a reputation for going out of their way to help customers. They starting plan with Red5 enabled costs $9.95 a month. Most other red5 hosting companies are resellers of Hosting Marketers.

Red5 is a formidable media server, extremely flexible and has the advantage of being a free product with with many people working on developing it, for now the main version does not yet work with mobiles, if that is what you need we suggest that instead of using the Red5 Pro version to use the Wowza instead.

Multi Bitrate streaming with red5

It is possible to stream a live event with red5 to different groups of people who have different internet connections with different speeds, for example for a person on dial up to stream to this person a high quality is useless because he will only see buffering, and little of the real video. Using multi bitrate it is possible to stream for dial ups, or high quality.

this is done on the fmle encoder, select more then 1 stream choose the bitrate you want to use and then on the stream name separate the stream names with a semicolon, for example:

low;medi;high

then create 3 different players, if on strobe on the video source use:

RTMP + Stream name

rtmp://server_IP/low

rtmp://server_IP/medi

rtmp://server_IP/high

 

this way you will have 3 players for 3 different group of viewers. More can be read at red5 hosting.

red5 installation and RED5_HOME environment variable

Hi there, at the beginning I've to say that I'm the beginner of this case so
it would be great if someone will help me. Just installed Red5 version
(red5-1.0.0-RC1) and have some problems with starting server. After running
red5.bat I've got:

http://old.nabble.com/file/p33092573/1.png 

It's very important thing for me so if anyone can help me please do that. I
need it to study for some projects. What should I do to start the red5
server correctly ? 

Is't due to environment variabl named CLASSpATH ??

Any answers will be helpful for me

answer 1:
I believe that version had issues on windows with spaces in the path. 
Try using a newer red5 (from svn) or install into a directory without spaces, 
such as c:\red5.
 answer2:
That error is common in Java applications when the application cannot
find the entry class of the application.

Are you sure that you have RED5_HOME set to the correct location? If
you take a look at the red5.bat file, there should be a boot.jar file
inside the directory specified by RED5_HOME environment variable.

"set RED5_CLASSPATH=%RED5_HOME%\boot.jar;%RED5_HOME%\conf;%CLASSPATH%"
