Two Way Stream Manager Proxy Video Chat

This example demonstrates two way communication using Red5 Pro. It also demonstrates using servlet requests on the server.

The Two-Way example requires access to a service that returns a stream listing. You may run into Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) issues if trying to use this example without the proper CORS settings provided by the server.

It is recommended to view this example as part of the webrtcexamples webapp shipped with the Red5 Pro Server.

More information on CORS can be found at: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Access_control_CORS.

Publisher Stream Manager Proxy

Please refer to the Publisher Stream Manager Proxy Documentation to learn more about the setup of a publisher through a stream manager.

Subscriber Stream Manager Proxy

Please refer to the Subscriber Stream Manager Proxy Documentation to learn more about the setup of a subscriber through a stream manager.

Basic Two Way

Please refer to the Basic Two Way Documentation to learn more about the basic setup of a publisher.

Example Code

These examples use the WebRTC-based Subscriber implementation from the Red5 Pro HTML SDK. However, there is failover support to allow for Flash-based subscriber on unsupported browsers.


Two way communication simply requires setting up a publish stream and a subscribe stream at the same time. You can test the example with two browser pages. On the second browser page, use the Settings page to swap the names of the stream.

The subscriber portion will automatically connect when the second person begins streaming.

Getting Live Streams

To get all the streams that a stream manager is handling on a cluster, use the list function of the stream manager api.

var baseUrl = isSecure ? protocol + '://' + host : protocol + '://' + host + portURI;
var url = baseUrl + '/streammanager/api/2.0/event/list';
  .then(function (res) {
    if (res.headers.get('content-type') &&
        res.headers.get('content-type').toLowerCase().indexOf('application/json') >= 0) {
      return res.json();
    else {
      return res.text();

index #202

After that, it's handled the same way that the returned data from the streams servlet would have been. For more information on this and other parts of the Stream Manager API, see our dcumentation here
