Porting to wowza and forth is ok, ive demoed that with the bandwidth
Looking deep into their c++ plugin API it wouldnt be so easy to port
however it seems their access plugin example seems like the
clientregistry in red5 just more intense requiring some overpriced
adobe 'partner' expert to build something for you, i'll stick to Java
or AS3 or whatever.
There is other stuff however that ive done with red5 webapps that may
seem really impossible to do with FMS unless I did build alot of the
stuff in C++ to use in the application script. Ie it will still only
access log for a whole application not for each 'room', bandwidth
shaping is for a whole application only, there is no per 'room'
configurations which is where I'm heading right now wanting to port as
many features over from windows media as possible that not even FMS has.
