Adobe Stratus and Flash P2P

December 20th, 2009 Categories: Uncategorized

Sean Murphy (my friend and fellow BYU-AUG member) just did a write up of some training he did last month for our user group. It’s an introduction to P2P with Flash+Stratus.

In my opinion, this is some really exciting technology as most communication of this sort (for Flash player) has to be routed through an intermediate server. Naturally there will still be cases where that makes the most sense, but for p2p apps (i.e. voice/video chat, p2p file transfer, etc) this is definitely a breath of fresh air.

I’ve been working on my own AIR chat application (previously implemented using polling channels on BlazeDS) which I may post more information about over the Christmas break. I’m converting it to use Stratus for real time P2P chatting. In the meantime if you’re interested in getting your feet wet with this, take a look at Sean’s write up: here.

He walks through a multi-user video conferencing app he built. The write up itself is still a work in progress (he’s cleaning up the source, and making a few other changes). He’s the kind of guy that appreciates feedback, so let him know what you think.
