To publish a video stream to Red5 Pro in Android, you can use the Red5 Pro Android SDK. The Red5 Pro SDK provides classes and methods that enable you to easily publish audio and video streams to a Red5 Pro server. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to publish a video stream in Android using the Red5 Pro SDK:

Step 1: Set Up Your Red5 Pro Server Before you start, make sure you have a running Red5 Pro server to which you want to publish the video stream. If you don't have one set up, you can follow the Red5 Pro documentation to install and configure the server.

Step 2: Integrate the Red5 Pro SDK into Your Android Project Add the Red5 Pro SDK dependency to your Android project by including it in your app-level build.gradle file:

implementation 'com.red5pro:red5pro-android:7.1.0'

Sync your project to download the SDK.

Step 3: Initialize Red5Pro in Your Android Application In your Android application, initialize the Red5Pro SDK in your Application class or in the activity where you want to publish the video stream. You need to configure the server URL, stream name, and other necessary parameters.

import com.red5pro.streaming.R5Stream; public class MyApplication extends Application { @Override public void onCreate() { super.onCreate(); // Initialize Red5Pro SDK R5Stream.config().setHost("your_red5_pro_server_url"); // Other configuration settings... } }

Step 4: Publish the Video Stream To publish the video stream, you can use the R5Stream class and its attachCamera and publish methods.

import com.red5pro.streaming.R5Stream; import com.red5pro.streaming.config.R5Configuration; import com.red5pro.streaming.view.R5VideoView; public class PublishActivity extends AppCompatActivity { private R5Stream stream; private R5VideoView videoView; @Override protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) { super.onCreate(savedInstanceState); setContentView(R.layout.activity_publish); videoView = findViewById(; // Create a configuration for the stream R5Configuration config = new R5Configuration(R5StreamProtocol.RTSP, "your_red5_pro_server_url", "your_stream_name", 1); // Create a new stream stream = new R5Stream(config); // Attach the camera to the stream stream.attachCamera(); // Attach the stream to the videoView videoView.attachStream(stream); // Start publishing the stream stream.publish("live"); } @Override protected void onDestroy() { super.onDestroy(); // Stop and clean up the stream when the activity is destroyed stream.stop(); stream.detachCamera(); stream = null; } }

In the above example, replace "your_red5_pro_server_url" with the URL of your Red5 Pro server and "your_stream_name" with the desired stream name. The R5StreamProtocol.RTSP specifies the protocol you want to use for the stream (e.g., RTSP, RTMP, etc.). You can adjust it according to your Red5 Pro server configuration.

Step 5: Display the Video Stream Ensure that you have a R5VideoView in your layout to display the video stream. For example:

<com.red5pro.streaming.view.R5VideoView android:id="@+id/videoView" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="match_parent" />

That's it! With these steps, you should be able to publish a video stream to your Red5 Pro server using the Red5 Pro Android SDK. The video stream will be available for viewing on the specified Red5 Pro server.
