installing Red5 in Ubuntu from the command line

First install the requirements for Red5:

sudo apt-get install java-package openjdk-7-jre openjdk-7-jdk ant subversion

Next download and untar Red5:

tar xvfz red5-1.0.0.tar.gz

Rename the folder:

mv red5-1.0.0 red5

And then run Red5:

cd red5

After scrolling through a lot of verbose information about the startup of Red5, you'll know it's running when you see the line that ends with Installer service created.

If you're browsing from the computer that it's installed on, you can see if the Red5 server is running by going to http://localhost:5080 .
