I just spent many hours trying to get the Admin (demo) application working properly; it was quite painful. Trying to get JNDI and Spring to cooperate in an Embedded Tomcat instance is not what I call fun, but I have it working alright for now. There still seem to be some underlying classloader issues in the server, because I cannot self-contain the web applications. No matter how I configure the server or application, there are always jars that must be in the shared lib directory; if anyone has any experience with this I would love to hear it.Â So without further rambling, here are the steps to take to get it working:
1. Obtain the admin war or use my archive
2. Unzip the archive into the webapps directory (red5/webapps/admin)
3. Move the following jars to your shared lib directory (red5/lib)
4. Restart Red5
5. Go to http://localhost:5080/admin/register.html to add new users
I hope this helps those of you new to red5, since I know it can be difficult to get things going at times.
