      does anyone know the disadvantages of using red5 over fms, seeing as red5 is free? regrads J

          that's one advantage. ;-)

          but I think its limited in a few ways because of proprietary codecs etc. I've been meaning to take a look at it but I think you need to learn how to program java to work on the server side code. Which is probably not too difficult I guess. And with the update of the player to H264 video support I read that for streaming it might be limited to FMS by some new mechanism.

          For basic data streaming I think it should be great. But I haven't tried it yet. You might find more knowledge people in the FMS forum, although I suspect its a little quieter than this one. Or if in doubt ask the red5 people.... Its certainly a very worthy and interesting project.
