Give current consulting rates; that will most likely get you a half day of work; maybe possible a day depending on the consultant's rate.
How about you try it yourself; then come back to us with specific problems where we may be able to direct you.
Or; reevaluate your budgets for bringing in someone external.
I managed to locate the user ID and username in the script after checked the MySQL records and created the auto-fill. Sorry, missed that there is a new version that includes the user names just need to use the svn and not download, http://code.google.com/p/video-chat/source/browse/
About the connection, I don't understand the code, it is closely related to RTMFP video technology and seems to use the described method. No big difference between RTMP (Red5) and RTMFP (Cirrus) but with cirrus, connections are dropped sometimes. May be something with the logic?
I would be a little more optimistic than Jeffrey on finding someone to do it, but don't expect a whole lot of time to be devoted to it. I am not sure how popular video is in Flex apps ( but I assume it is really popular for certain types of apps ) but I think the Red5 usage is going to hurt you seeing as how there aren't gobs of Flex developers working with it compared to your run of the mill crud apps.
@Jeff, What kind of market has it where Flex devs pulling down $3500 a week NYC, LA, San Fran ?
@Most US based consultants I know are in the $100 hour range and up. Most work in telecommuting situations; so they are all over.
Are you not based in the US?
Here are a few sources:
I apologize to the original poster for hijacking this thread. It wasn't my intention.
@JeffryHouser No problem, your post helped a lot, thanks! We tried to find the bug or logical issue that is causing dropped connections with Adobe Cirrus and I must say it will take several hours or more, even for a flex/as pro.
UbuntuPenguin has right, most developers are not comfortable with the RTMFP, AFMS and Cirrus. About two weeks ago, the developers from videosoftware added this fix to their forum and later to the project but I am not sure I understand it:
Tonight we tested this version from svn, I don't know what to say. Yes, the connection got much faster, not even comparable to what it was before but still inferior compared to Red5. What is strange, as I see the whole thing is the same, no matter if you use Red5 or Cirrus. Am I missing something? Even the developers are posting confusing answers at their forum, regarding this connection issue, they blame the sync (milliseconds) between the local MySQL and remote Cirrus and say it cannot be synchronized in real time because it would cause extreme server load and millions of SQL queries.
Hi, I don't know if you find the right person for the job yet but this is something we have expertise in and would love to collaborate on. Where can I reach out to you for details?
