	Nope, that port is fine. The key, though, is that those parameters (the URL and the 
value of the "stream" parameter) correspond to the path and name of the Java app that is 
listening on the server. I already uninstalled Red5, but from what I remember, the default app 
that came with it was in the directory "live/" and had the name "stream"; thus, your URL 
should be "rtmp://x.x.x.x/live" and the "stream" parameter needs to have the value "stream".
	Check it out in your Red5 install, in any case, since as I said, I already uninstalled it 
from my machine.
