Flash and client audio recording

Recently, I have been looking at recording audio from an embedded flash program and encoding that onto a server. There are so many different resources out there that it can be confusing. I just wanted to share some of the free and/or open source tools that I have found out there. Please feel free to share any tools that you use.

  • Red5 (Flash Media Server Alternative):

    Red5 is an Open Source Flash Server written in Java that supports:

    • Streaming Audio/Video (FLV and MP3)

    • Recording Client Streams (FLV only)

    • Shared Objects

    • Live Stream Publishing

    • Remoting (AMF)

  • ffmpeg (Media Encoder):
    FFmpeg is a complete solution to record, convert and stream audio and video. It includes libavcodec, the leading audio/video codec library. FFmpeg is developed under Linux, but it can compiled under most operating systems, including Windows.

  • Audacity (Audio Recorder/Editor):
    Audacity is free, open source software for recording and editing sounds. It is available for Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows, GNU/Linux, and other operating systems.
