The latest version of Livestream Procaster, available from the Livestream website as a free download.
* Logging in
* Streaming, both in virtual desktop and without
* Chat (prompts to install flash, but that works fine)
* Resizing stream area
What does not
* With certain games in windowed mode, the stream disconnects with "Recording desktop error" after a few minutes
* Game mode - "Game mode cannot start because DirectX testing returned an error"
* Webcam source and quality options on the "go live" tab often disappear
* All audio sources in the mixer point at the currently recording device
What was not tested
* "Promote" tab
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.

Currently, the following are things to note:
To get Livestream Procaster running a few native dll overrides are required, download winetricks by running the following code
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
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/
