While preparing an application to be presented during our talk for RailsConf I was looking for a “Flash Media Server” written in Ruby that could record video form a Flash Player. I found rubyizumi but it doesn’t support recording (to my understanding). In Javaland they are a couple, red5 and demou, but they are too convoluted for just a demo. Red5 allows Ruby scripting which is pretty cool. I found one which I really like and will certainly use which is named haxe Video which is written in haXe and is very succinct and works. It’s open source and can be found on googlecode. Of course there is Adobe’s Flash Media Server but I would prefer finding a Ruby specific solution. Do you know any Flash Media Server written in Ruby? Drop me a line or a comment.
