Getting Started


Red5 Pro Stream Manager REST API calls can be executed using any standard REST client.

For this section we will be using Google Chrome Add-On: Postman REST client. You need to have the latest Chrome Browser installed on your computer to install the Add-On.

Below are examples on using POST, GET and DELETE type REST operations using the Postman REST client. These are the three type of operations that you will come across while using the Stream Manager REST API.

Note: In examples, the URL pattern of {host} will refer to the Stream Manager IP/hostname and {port} will be 5080, the default port for Red5 Pro. For most cases, we would suggest running on an SSL-secured server.
