Selected Test Results

What works

  • Installing Procaster
  • Logging in
  • Streaming to Livestream (H.264 and VP6 encoding)
  • Chat function
  • Recording and streaming the desktop (including things outside of WINE)
  • Zoom buttons on the control bar.

What does not

  • Streaming audio from outside the WINE environment.
  • The window transparency in login windows and prompts, which instead turns the windows a large, straight black.
  • Some of the UI drawing functions.
  • Minimize function on the control bar.
  • Game streaming/recording, which displayed a "Test DirectX error" message.
  • Minimizing the Procaster window under certain circumstances.
  • Relinquishing keyboard/mouse control under certain circumstances.
  • Windows often exhibit odd behaviour when moving them.
  • The uninstaller.
  • The promote tab, which doesn't seem to be able to pick up the Twitter authorization.

Workarounds

What was not tested

  • Streaming audio from inside the WINE environment.
  • Game streaming mode (as the DirectX testing error prevents any actual testing).

Additional Comments

The installer works, albeit flashes some text as it does so. This doesn't seem to affect usage. The uninstaller doesn't seem to work, which could be a pretty big usability issue at some point. I needed to create an override for wininet.dll using a native DLL, which unfortunately creates a need for a Windows license. Logging in doesn't work without this override.

HowTo / Notes

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/
