Ignite realtime communiity is happy to release Redfire version 0.5 with Spark plugin version 0.8


  • Fixed: Home page (index.html) page broken links due to last set of changes. Added missing publisher.swf tester appliccation
  • Fixed: Prompt for Redfire audio/video in Spark does get removed
  • Fixed: URL still shows when prompt is displayed in Spark
  • Fixed: Cursor position incorrect when x and y not zero in screenshare
  • Fixed: malformed URL error with "about:blank"
  • Changed: RTMP is now the default instead of RTMFP for 2way and conf audio/video. Edit redfire_2way.html ad redfire_video.html files to enable RTMFP. It is assumed you understand how RTMFP works and how to enable P2P on your network.
  • Changed: Maximium frame rate improved in screenshare and now exposed as a new parameter. Default is 30, but in practice, you would need a very fast PC and lots of bandwidth to share a full 1400x1050 in 30fps.
  • Changed: Video quality improved at expense of bandwidth. Edit redfire_2way.html ad redfire_video.html files to configure as required.  It is assumed you understand how Flash video works and the implications of changing quality, bandwidth and frame rate parameters.
