Thank you Roberto , Thank you Dan!
I was wondering whether it 'd be feasible to have a light C++ server to be
used in a P2P program. This light Red5-C++ would enable the FlashPlayer to
connect to it, shake hands and exchange Audio, Video and maybe "AMF" Objects
(all that whithin the user PC, everything on the client side).
Now that light Red5-C++ mini Server, would be able to connect through the
network to other instances of the same Red5-C++ installed on other client's
machines (P2P in short) and exchanging data(video,audio...etc). The obvious
benefit here is not to overload a central server! also since much of the
functionality is on the client side, we might easily integrate and add other
services (different P2P programs would have different sets of services and
still be able to connect to each other, and that would be extreemly
expensive to implement on a central server).
Using Flash as the UI has many benefits (as i see it), it's user friendly,
flashy, widespread and with the new FlashPLayers you can do wonders... Also,
I already spent the time to learn AS2 -:).
I have been to http://wigiwigi.com/ quite interesting but the whole thing is
too ambiguous! There's nothing about the license... I understand that Ashod
sends the code to some people on a person to person basis.
also I red some of your intervensions (Roberto) especially the one about
using Flash UI for WigiWigi.
Unfortunately, it seems not possible for lack of efficiency. I do not
exactly understand why nor how ... Have you made WigiWigi work together with
FlashPlayer? and if yes have used the new binary sockets, LocalConnection ..
If i understood the PDF roadmap file,Red5 will use Jetty (Like Tomcat, Jetty
is in Java).So I guess it will "integrate" very well with Jetty.
Are you planing to make a peerCast like program?? ( http://www.peercast.org/
Thank you all!
