Frequently Asked Questions

Software Dependencies – CentOS 7


Does the Red5 Pro server run on CentOS?


Server Release 9.0.0 does not run on CentOS. We recommend using Linux for optimal performance.

If you must use CentOS, please download 8.2.0 with JDK 8 support, and see the information below for proper configuration.

Software Dependencies – CentOS 7

CentOS 7 requires certain software dependencies. See the following SSL information.

Note: Red5 Pro with WebRTC does not run on CentOS 6 due to an older and less secure version of glibc that has been updated with CentOS 7. If you want to run Red5 Pro on CentOS, you must use build 7 (note that we have not tested with CentOS 8).

Open SSL Configuration for CentOS

IMPORTANT: Because of different libcrypto library versions supported between CentOS and Ubuntu, with release 5.2.2 it is necessary to modify {red5pro}/conf/, and change openssl.enabled=true to openssl.enabled=false.

Depending on your permissions, you may need to pre-pend the following commands with sudo:

yum -y update
yum -y install java unzip jsvc ntp libva libvdpau—centos-7
