So we are almost there.
whats the progress so far now?
It's really sad that there's been no update because at least two of the things listed should have easily been fixed by now.

Looking at the windows version, the entire interface is using Qt, so doing layered windows in linux would be really easy. It would just require a window manager capable of compositing which should be achievable by all if you use xcompmgr.

As for the generic webcam capture, that should be a lot easier now as well thanks to improvements to V4L2 since then.

Procaster kind of works in Wine now that they have Layered Window support, but certain things such as chat and the audio mixer still bug up a lot and cause the app to break. I'd be super disappointed if they're just waiting for the app to work in Wine for them to package a "for Linux" version that's just the exe and it'll make a wineprefix for it much like TeamViewer did/does(?).

Default Interested

I am another interested Linux user. However, as is so often the case, the company is not helping our cause. It is possible to get Procaster functioning through Wine, although it is labor intensive. By the time the great guys at Wine working on this, Joshua and Benjamin Amtzen, have it perfected, Livestream may likely take a look at what they have done and release it as a for Linux version, as has happened in the case of so much other software in the past. They don't see money in releasing for Linux, so it's probably as much a priority as promoting one of their building janitors to CFO.

Another Linux User very interested in procaster for linux. I am also a co-user of a pro account so don't let this account make you think I'm only a free user. Not that it should matter anyway.

Someone should run up on the CEO of Livestream livestreaming him asking him why he doesn't want to support linux on procaster!
