@ Jeff Stanier
It has been over month, any news on the LCCS service shutdown and viable alternatives? My company is in the same situation as everyone else that built a product around LCCS, it is no small task to re-write these parts for any new LCCS solution. Our company just found out recently of the news so we have had a late start on trying to switch to an alternate solution. We need a viable solution for us and have little or no impact on our customer base, what is Adobe doing to help in this matter? I can tell you for a fact if a viable solution is not found, this will have a huge impact on public relations of adobe. No company will want to ever do any business with a company that abandons its customers like the way Adobe has abandoned us. If it does not get resolved reasonably and to our satisfaction I can assure you Adobe will be in court for the next 3 years and I will never again base any software product on their technology or tools ever again! Adobe actions in this matter is unprecedented and shameful!
You beat me to it. I was going to post an update today since I had a couple of inquiries about the status of things. I don't have much to report at this point other than discussions are ongoing and taking longer than I expected. I still think however that we'll be able to come to an agreement with a hosting partner to take over the service. I will provide more info as soon as I can but it would be premature to do so at this point,
Thanks for you continued patience.
Thanks for the update Jeff,
Your efforts to make this happen are VERY MUCH appreciated.
thank you for the response. I hope Adobe will be more tranparent in this matter. Time is very important and there is going to be a point of no return on this issue. You have people either waiting on Adobe to provide an alternative host before the December deadline or you have others trying to re-write parts of their product. So Adobe needs to be very open in this process and let us know a timeline when an alternative hosting provide can be available for us to access or if not at all.
The reason why:
1. So people can not waiste development time re-writing code and focus on only the changes needed for using the alternate hosting provider and still work on enhancements to their product.
2. if a hosting provider will not be in time of the deadline, adobe should extend the deadline.
3. if hosting is out of the question then the people waiting for adobe to provide an alternative hosting solution can then begin re-writing parts with an alternative to LCCS
I'll be as transparent as I can. However, this involves a negotiation and legal contract so I can't disclose details until both parties are ready.
agreed, thank you very much jeff, the transparency is greatly appreciated.
Just had a co-worker point out this possible OpenSource alternative that claims it can handle streaming video, both RTMP and RTMPS http://www.fluorinefx.com/
I haven't had the opportunity to explore it yet. Has anyone had any experience with it?
http://www.fluorinefx.com/ sounds very promising.
Anyone tried it?
It would be great to also share the hosting solutions too.
For example if i need to use BlazeDS and Red5 in place of LCCS, how should i host the services easely? As one of the main interests of LCCS was the "no server side worries".
Hi Community Members,
Even after I heard of discontinuation plans for lccs I kept my nose to the grindstone and completed my lccs app. Good thing I did, that thing works great, no latency, no echo and of course screen sharing is a great feature. So, it's good to hear that a successor to continue lccs may be possible; I've used Influxis and if it was to be those guys, they are great.
To the point; I've spent the last 3 weeks getting VideoIO,
http://myprojectguide.org/p/flash-videoio/index.html to work and after teaching myself how to do the PythonPath and downloading Cygwin to open Python scripts on a windows machine, that program looks like it's going to work great too. Developing from where VideoIO leaves you I think will allow you to make great communication apps. The VideoIO developer has a companion project called VideoCity that works exactly like lccs rooms so if it's rooms you want that's a possibility too.
I havn't spend much time on FVNC but it could turn out to be a viable flash screen share app because it's suppose to tunnel behind routers, which has always been the limitation to VNC. There's light at the end of the tunnel.
Is there any new news? Will this be moved to Influxis?
