Thank you kindly for that informative repsonse! It really helps...I
have a small team building a Red5 app right now - and were gambling
on it being able to do the task because the app will grow bigger in
the future and FMS costs too much....and I think that red5s eventual
path will match or surpass what Adobe has to offer - and open source
will attract a larger army of developers to help each other.
I should have something to show you guys soon - I know you all like
seeing what red5 is doing - and actually - we may need your helps
here and there. I look forward to communicating with you all - and
tossing in my hands to help out here too. Hats off to open source!
