A new version of  Redfire ( has been posted on project site


It has three major changes


  • The Redfire plugin for Spark now uses the multicast DNS protocol to auto-discover the Redfire plugin for Openfire and obtain the server address and port number in order to load the web pages for the audio/video chat. I have not tested it properly, so please report any issues found.


  • Support for RTMFP has been added using Cumulus OpenRTMFP server. It is disabled by default as the binary for only Windows is provided. Linux users must download and build the binary from source and point the "cumulus.path" Openfire property at the binary file location. When enabled, all audio/video calls can be peer to peer using UDP instead of TCP and improving performance.


  • Red5Phone is now replaced with Redfire-Phono which a modified version of the Phono SDK from Voxeo. It is a Javascript library based on jQuery and Strophe that enables telephone calls to be made from a web browser. Redfire-Phono allows Jingle audio calls using the RTMP transport between any Redfire-Phono users as well as audio calls to any SIP address and external telephone numbers using a configured gateway with the SIP plugin for Openfire.



I still do not have a 64-bit Windows PC, so all reported issues with redfire plugin for Spark on 64-bit PCs have not been fixed.
