How to install on a Mac?

Completed a bit of investigation on this.

I think the issue is related to version 1.5 of the BareBonesBrowserLaunch java code in Red5 Plugin.

It seems to be broken on OSX with Java 1.6. Still works on Windows. . .

I think the latest version, 2.0, of BareBonesBrowserLaunch addresses this issue.

The latest version can be found here: http://www.centerkey.com/java/browser/

I am working on getting the Red5 Plugin built with this version of code but need to complete a bit of reading beforehand. If someone is set up to build Red5 Plugin already it may be better than waiting on me to do it.

Will update when I know more.


I have stopped work on the Red5 plugin for now. It is broken with Red5 server 0.8 and I have no time to fix it, so please go ahead and build a new version if you can

It’s been a while… anyone have any progress on getting Red5 working on the Mac?

10.6 has been out a while… did that resolved the JRE issues or futher complicate them?

So is Red5 dead on the Mac? Is there no way to get video conferencing to work on my Macs? I love Openfire but the primary reason we installed it was to do cross-platform text and video using the same client interface which Openfire/Spark offered…

Anyone? Bueller?

I think we’re seeing the same issue on Linux as we also get the error (i.e. when launching Spark from a terminal so you can see the stdout errors) when trying to launch the Red5 menu options (which does launch a IE page on Windows):

Exception in thread “AWT-EventQueue-0” java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/jdesktop/jdic/browser/BrowserEngineManager

And this is using JRE 1.6 on Fedora.
