I've been playing around with the Red5 Pro SDK (
http://red5pro.com) and it looks pretty good. I was trying to get it to work with my client's Wowza installation though, and it appears that I need to install their server. I would rather not move my client's infrastructure over to a new server. So this leads me to looking at the gocoder SDK. How do you guys compare with what Red5 is offering? Does it do two way communication, as this is a requirement for my client?
Anyway, keep up the good work! I'm a huge fan of Wowza!
GoCoder SDK contains many new and exciting features:
•Enables screen capture
•Local record functionality (mp4)
•Enables streaming local MP4 file
Our focus has been to deliver a low latency solution, which can utilize the robustness of Wowza platform and deliver the most reliable performance for real-time mobile streaming needs. I am certain that GoCoder SDK provides a better performance and value over other streaming and broadcasting SDKs like Red5.
At this stage, we do not support two-way communication feature. We are actively working to add several innovative features including this one in the coming Months and Year.
Yes the GoCoder SDK does support streaming from custom video sources. The SDK expects to be given uncompressed frames to encode and stream. It would be the responsibility of the app developer to write the bridge between the external video source/camera and the SDK.
