This program is a Linux audio/video capture utility that can capture and encode
audio and video in real-time. The results can be written to either an mp4
file, transmitted onto the network via either unicast or multicast, or both
simultaneously! The audio is encoded with MP3 or AAC, and the video with MPEG-4
Simple Profile which is OpenDivx compatible.
The program has a Gtk based user interface which displays a preview of the encoded video and controls to adjust the settings of the functions of the program. Settings are remembered and stored in ~/.mp4live_rc.
See the program README for detailed information on hardware and software requirements, known problems, and unknowns.
