Install Red5 1.0.8

The purpose of this post is to show the little steps needed in order to install newer versions of Red5. We will learn how to install Red5 1.0.8.

Requirement: Java 8

First of all we need to download the Red5 1.0.8 version from the official project repository at GitHub (

After uncompressing it we need to open a command-line pointing to Red5 root directory

Finally we just need to launch the server by using:

./ in Linux / OSx

red5.bat in Windows

Once we have launched the server we need to check if everything is OK by accessing to the Red5 Server default url (http://localhost:5080)

If we see a Red5 animation in the middle of the page, we have a correct installation of Red5 Server.
