creating a new app on Red5 for live streaming

We will call this app live221.

first of all download the folder live from red5, the path is /usr/local/red5/webapps

if you ftp to the server you will see these apps.

then rename the folder live to live221

open the folder and go inside \WEB-INF folder, there are 3 files there, you need to change 2.

1- file: red5-web.properties
2 – file: web.xml

open on a text editor red5-web.properties , you will see the 2 lines below:
webapp.contextPath=/live
webapp.virtualHosts=*

change it to:

webapp.contextPath=/live221
webapp.virtualHosts=*

now open the second file web.xml the code on top:

red5 live app

upload the new folder, restart the Red5

go to the Red5 admin area and you will see the new app.
