Various ramblings-on, mostly about Red5

15 Apr 09 Java book recommendations

I see this question quite a lot, “What books should I read to learn Java”. I have a set of books I like to recommend, books that have made me a better developer. So without further adieu..

Effective Java

Java concurrency in practice

For Red5 development I also recommend:

Spring in Action

Professional Apache Tomcat 6

Lastly, you can usually pick these books up even cheaper if you click on the “used” section on Amazon.

Heres a snapshot of two of my shelves of books.

27 May 08 Apache and RTMPT

Some of you may find yourself in a situation where your Red5 server is on an internal network or otherwise un-reachable from the Internet. This set of rewrite rules will allow you to provide access to Red5 using an Apache web server (assuming the web server has access to the Internet).
The following rules assume that your Red5 server is running on a server with the IP address of, accepting HTTP connections on port 5080, and your application name is “myapp”.

    RewriteRule ^/(open/.*)$$1 [P]
    RewriteRule ^/(send/.*)$$1 [P]
    RewriteRule ^/(idle/.*)$$1 [P]
    RewriteRule ^/(close/.*)$$1 [P]

If you need more information on mod_rewrite, use this link.
