Annual Subscription Details

Usage Instructions

Once you boot up the instance the server is immediately accessible via browser:

http://<instance ip address>:5080
(replace the <instance ip address> with the actual ip address of the running EC2 instance).

Demo applications are available at this address.

To immediately begin streaming content, login with any FTP client using sFTP. The default username will be ubuntu. Once logged in you will see a "streams"directory. Place your videos in this directly and they will be accessible via ramp://<instance ip address>/file.mp4
(replace the <instance ip address> with the actual ip address of the running EC2 instance).

You can also login via SSH with the username 'ubuntu' and your private key file. There is a script pre-installed on the server located at: /etc/init.d/red5. You can start,stop,and restart the server via this script, eg. sudo /etc/init.d/red5 restart.

Webapps are installable via the web apps directory. Simply install your web app and restart the server via the pre-installed script.

** When testing a demo application you MUST replace anything referencing "localhost"eg. http://localhost/oflaDemo with the IP address or hostname of your instance.

There is also an eclipse IDE plugin for developing Red5 applications available here:

Pricing Details
For region
Hourly Fees
Total hourly fees will vary by instance type and EC2 region.
Software annual pricing savings over hourly: 10% - 15%
Savings is based on the difference between the annual price and running the software at the hourly price for 24 hours over 365 days.
When you launch an instance, the instance type that you specify determines the hardware of the host computer used for your instance. Each instance type offers different compute, memory, and storage capabilities. Select an instance type based on the requirements of the application or software that you plan to run on your instance. Please visit the Instance Types documentation for more details.
EBS General Purpose (SSD) volumes
You are charged once a month for both the space and performance that you reserve. Please visit the EBS pricing for more details.

On-Demand Instances let you pay for compute capacity by the hour with no long-term commitments. This frees you from the costs and complexities of planning, purchasing, and maintaining hardware and transforms what are commonly large fixed costs into much smaller variable costs.
Assumes On-Demand EC2 pricing

Data Transfer Fees not included
