Additional Comments

Requires wininet.dll, installable with winetricks

Streaming without a virtual desktop will stream the outlined area on whatever the active workspace is. Using a virtual desktop will confine the stream to the virtual desktop, even when switching the active workspace in GNOME.

The best workaround I had for the audio source issue (in order to stream my game sounds and mic) was to set up two streams at two different sources, and in pulseaudio change one of the recording streams wine requests to a monitor, and leave the other stream on my mic.

Rendering issues and how to live with them

Currently, the following are things to note:

  • Don't try to move around the window unless you have to, as this will cause the UI elements to go crazy.
  • Clicking the dropdown menus a couple of times will "fix" the gigantic black boxes they seem to create below them. 
  • Procaster can only be uninstalled via the shortcut on the start menu, not via "Add/Remove Programs"/"Uninstall Wine Software."

 
HOWTO

To get Livestream Procaster running a few native dll overrides are required, download winetricks by running the following code

wget http://winetricks.org/winetricks

Now use winetricks to install the required overrides

sh winetricks vcrun2008 wininet

Also, ksproxy.ax and ksuser.dll are required and they can be downloaded and installed using

wget http://download.microsoft.com/download/E/E/1/EE17FF74-6C45-4575-9CF4-7FC2597ACD18/directx_feb2010_redist.exe
cabextract directx_feb2010_redist.exe dxnt.cab
cabextract dxnt.cab -F ksuser.dll
cabextract dxnt.cab -F ksproxy.ax
mv ksuser.dll ksproxy.ax $WINEPREFIX/drive_c/windows/system32/

Non Functional

I followed the howto. I tried everything I could imagine. The program will not launch. It says it installs, but nothing at all happens when I attempt to run it. I've talked to people who use Procaster with Wine, so I know it's possible. I would really appreciate help getting it to work.

Not Working
by mike on Thursday December 2nd 2010, 5:32
I was unable to get Procaster working using the method detailed above (override wininit.dll). I have WinXP set as my Windows version and am copying the dll's from a legitimate, up-to-date XP install.

The initial out-of-the-box problem is that it always reports a failed login even when you enter valid information.

After overriding wininit.dll, I got errors about missing normaliz.dll and iertutil.dll, which I guess are needed by wininit. I copied those into the Procaster directory. Then, trying to login, I get:

LoginCommander: try to connect to server
wine: Call from 0x7bc4b8a0 to unimplemented function urlmon.dll.410, aborting

Then it crashes. If I override urlmon.dll, it reverts back to the initial problem of always reporting a failed login.

At this point I'm a bit stuck. With the built-in urlmon.dll, Procaster crashes. With the XP native .dll, it can't authenticate. Are there other dll's that might need to be over-ridden?
