Installing Red5 on Debian Squeeze

First, install the necessary applications:

aptitude install openjdk-6-jdk ant red5-server subversion dpkg-dev

The problem with the Debian Red5 package is that it does not come with the oflaDemo - which is the only webapp we need for video streaming.

So... we have to download the Red5 source pacakge, check out (via svn) the source for the Red 5 extras, and then compile and install ofladDemo.

Get the red5 source:

cd /usr/local/src
mkdir red5
cd red5
apt-get source red5

Now, check out the red5-examples source:

cd /usr/local/src
svn co red5-examples

Next, copy the oflaDemo into the red5 source webapps directory (you may need to modify the path of the red5 source directory)

cd /usr/local/src/red5/red5-0.9~svn3968/webapps/
cp -r /usr/local/src/red5-examples/oflaDemo .

Compile the oflaDemo code:

cd oflaDemo
export RED5_HOME=/usr/share/red5

If it builds without a problem - copy the resulting code into the Red 5 package webapps directory:

cp -r www /usr/share/red5/webapps/oflaDemo

And lastly, start red5:

/etc/init.d/red5-server start
