Can't you have your Flash client initiate a connect to your Red5 server and
then have the Red5 server generate a UUID for the client ?
In fact I often have our server generate some sort of UID for an unknown/new
client, then let the client store the UID in it's local shared object (aka
flash cookie) so we know who is connecting the next time the client connects
(and then passes his UID from his local shared object as an identifier).
