  • several days of reading , tweaking , and head-scratching in a quagmire have bourne some fruits in the past few days which have marked an encouraging leap forward with the most tenuous and fussy bits implemented - the AvCaster client is now streaming camera and audio into LCTV quite nicely with no apparent stability issues - the only two milestone features remaining are compositing and the splitting of the inputs between the GUI and the muxer

2015-10-06

  • gStreamer seems to be working out quite well so far - it is currently capturing screen and camera and displaying them in preview windows - one nice feature was discovered that gStreamer handles screen resolution/orientation changes gracefully - even if the width/height parameters specified are or become out of range gStreamer defaults to full screen where the ffmpeg implementation would crash in this situation - the folks on the IRC were fairly confident that gStreamer was capable of fullfilling all of this project's media requirements so it was probably a good decision to switch

2015-09-23

  • this project's initial prototype was implemented as a GUI frontend to a ffmpeg/avconv command-line but this approach had some critial limitations and the gStreamer native API was introduced to supply the missing features - we are now exploring the fitness of gStreamer for the handling of all media functionality without the ffmpeg dependency
