Red5 on Ubuntu 9.04 – Thanks to BigBlueButton!

Posted on October 20, 2009


Found the BigBlueButton project ( the other day – very interesting!

Not at least that they have solved the tricky red5 installation very in a way that hopefully will find it’s way back to very soon… Their full installation uses nginx web server ( instead of Apache, but here’s a way to pick the red5 raisin out of the big blue cookie:

  1. wget
  2. sudo apt-key add bigbluebutton.asc
  3. echo “deb bigbluebutton main” | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/bigbluebutton.list
  4. sudo apt-get update
  5. sudo apt-get install red5

Thank you, Fred and others at BigBlueButton!
Now, let’s find out if this works on a Debian Lenny too…
