Is the red5 video plugin secure?

Question asked by klogger on Sep 9, 2008

I have http_bind ssl working on port 8443 and my sparkweb client is working on the same port. When I use the text chat feature and a packet sniffer I can see the packs are encrypted. Is it the same with the audio/video?

 

It seems that audio/video connects to the red5 server on port 1935 which I think is unsecure. If that is the case, is it possible to edit the client files so that it uses port 1936 and then enable that port on the red5 server? I have looked through the client (flex) source code and couldn't find where the port it uses is set.

 

Thanks for any pointers or assistance you may be able to provide in getting this going.
