Yep, you read it right, WebcamStudio For GNU/Linux will also be WebcamStudioX. Depending on the OS that you are using, WebcamStudio will load according to the OS your on.
If your on Linux, then all the bells and whistles will be available as usual and you will see WebcamStudio For GNU/Linux. But if you are running Windows, then you will see WebcamStudioX, a light version of WebcamStudio that will not support device detection or a virtual device output.
What is it then? WebcamStudioX has the same basic functionalities as the original minus the device detection and the output to a virtual device (loopback). Instead, it will output audio and video thru an OGG Stream on a local tcp/ip port. Using any software supporting url like "tcp://127.0.0.1:4888", you'll be able to grab the output and rebroadcast where ever you want.
To be able to use your webcam, a pipeline will have to be created and detected by WSX (WS4GL, in X mode). See Pipelines
Version 0.57 will support the new X mode, even for Linux. For the first release, it will be a little bit bare bone as a proof of concept, but usable.
So how will you broadcast over the web? Simple, FFMPEG supports RTMP protocol, meaning that you'll be able to broadcast to services like Justin.tv or Bambuser with FFMPEG,
As an example:
VLC should also work using the same url... More testing needs to be done, but basically, WebcamStudio is running under Windows!
Oh, yeah, here's a screen capture of WSX running on Windows XP, remotely accessed with VNC, and a local FFPLAY playing the output stream locally...
In the next release of 0.57 BETA 2, WebcamStudioX will be available...
