Change the Default webpage that opens in RED5

Hello. I have red5 working great now, but I am running into a little problem.

When I log into red5 sparkweb a browser opens that points to ignite realtime. If I try to close that window it does not close, only the “x” tab dissapears while the page stays. If I start a conversation then the IM window opens behind the browser and I can’t see anything.

I tried in IE, FF, and safari. They all seem to have this problem.

Is there a way to change the url that opens when I launce red5 sparkweb?

I have an html page that contains instructions for using red5 sparkweb that I would like to display if possible?



Put comments on the 2 lines in red below in index.html

function jive_sparkweb_getConfig()

var username = getPageParameter(‘username’, ‘’);
var password = getPageParameter(‘password’, ‘’);
var autologin = getPageParameter(‘autologin’, ‘false’);
var webapp = getPageParameter(‘webapp’, ‘red5’);
var conn = getPageParameter(‘conn’, ‘socket’); // socket, http or rtmp (using xmppurl below)
var tls = getPageParameter(‘tls’, ‘true’); // socket, use TLS or not

return {

//httpLabel: “Ignite”,
//httpURL: “http://www.igniterealtime.org”,
username: username,
password: password,
server: window.location.hostname,
port: conn == “socket” ? 5222 : window.location.port,
red5url: “rtmp:/sip”,
xmppurl: “rtmpt::8000/xmpp”,
webapp: webapp,
connectionType: conn,
connectionTLS: tls,
policyFileURL: “xmlsocket://” + window.location.hostname + “:5229”,
webcamAvatar: “false”,
visualPresence: 120,
historyChats: 2,
autologin: autologin

One other quick question.

I also get an error when loading that says it is “unable to load plugins plugin.xml”

Do you know any way to stop that error when I load red5 sparkweb?

create a folder called plugins and create a file called plugins.xml containing

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

for more info about sparkweb plugins, see my blog
