Client software primarily used with the CasparCG Server software for audio and video playout, to control graphics and recording, but it can also be used for other tasks within television broadcast.
If used with CasparCG Server as intended, CasparCG Client provides a seamless and smooth way to playout audio, video and dynamic graphics. CasparCG Client can also be used to control ATEM Live Production Switchers and some TriCasters, without any requirements to use the CasparCG Server, and so much more.

For the moment the project has two primary branches,
The purpose of the
master branch is to always have the latest stable version of CasparCG Client software, just as expected. The
next branch contains the source code for the next upcoming version of CasparCG Client software. The version found in the next branch is considered to be unstable.
In the future, stable releases will be tagged for better overview and tracking.
Install the pre-built Qt 5.* binaries for Windows 64-bit (MinGW SEH exception handling), grab it from: http://casparcg.com/build-tools/.
VLC need to be installed on Linux:
sudo apt-get install vlc libvlc-dev libvlccore-dev.
The plugin cache may need to be refreshed:
sudo /usr/lib/vlc/vlc-cache-gen -f /usr/lib/vlc/plugins.
You can find the latest unstable development builds on http://builds.casparcg.com.
Complete history of all releases and the changes can be found in the CHANGELOG.
