Though our latest release was a big one, that certainly doesn't mean we took any time off. Following the big release of Red5 Pro version 6.0 comes 6.2!
This update improves shared objects behavior and introduces the inspector webapp. The inspector allows you to get details about your stream in real-time for diagnostic purposes. While Chrome's WebRTC internals gives a tremendous amount of data on live streams from the client side perspective, the Inspector by contrast gives you details about the published stream coming into a Red5 Pro server. The Inspector evaluates the latency of a published stream by measuring how early or late the media packets are. It also provides details on packet size and other timing information that can be helpful for troubleshooting your live streaming applications.
We would like to thank our hardworking team for always driving to improve Red5 Pro and continuing to keep it a progressive and well functioning software tool. Read below for the full list of improvements and fixes.
