Hi there.
The RedBox works exclusively with the Flash Player which embeds specific technologies for audio and video streaming.
If you want to mix A/V and Unity you can use both technologies (FP plugin and UT plugin) in the same browser page, or maybe launch a specific popup for A/V sessions, chatting etc...

Hi Lapo,

We are doing a game on Unity which requires A/V streaming, cool to know that it can work with FP plugin on a browser but we are exploring the possibility of the same on iOS. What is the workaround of this on devices (iOS and android)?

Please suggest.

Thanks in advance.

SmartFoxServer supports audio/video streaming through a third-party product called Red5 Media Server. We also provide an high level API (the RedBox, described here: which provides pre-built classes for common usage scenarios and the integration with SmartFoxServer.
The RedBox is available for Flash only because Red5 makes use of the standard Flash API for audio/video streaming. Flash can be used to develop native games and apps for iOS/Android devices too, but we never tested if an audio/video streaming app can be exported to those platforms. Someone reported in our forums they were trying to do it, but they encountered some issues: viewtopic.php?f=24&t=16399

Wrapping up, if you are developing the iOS app through Unity, the RedBox won't work and you will need to look for another a/v streaming solution to use side-by-side with SmartFoxServer, which can still handle the gaming part.

Or maybe you could search the Red5 resources websites to look for Unity compatible API.
