Kafka Consumers for non node-red Producers


Is anyone able to consume Kafka messages from topics produced by non node-red Producers?
For all message generated from outside the node-red project, node-red's kafka throws an error for 'unsupported snappy compression' ?

I have tried node-red-contrib-kafkajs, node-red-contrib-kafka-manager, & other libs, but all libs throw the same error. There is no configuration available in any of the nodes too. I am unable to read any Kafka messages generated from outside of node-red context.

Has any one implemented this use-case or can help me on this?

This looks to be very much a duplicate of Snappy Compression Issues with Kafka Consumer - #2 by Steve-Mcl

Why are there two threads? It only leads to confusion.

Closing this one to avoid confusion
