Recently someone popped into our IRC channel and reminded me about a project I thought I might have heard about before. One of the best open source podcast right now is FLOSS Weekly hosted by Randal Schwartz. Being a busy guy, I often listen to it while traveling and at other times which may mean varying degrees of exhaustion and alertness. In this case, being reminded about WebcamStudio for GNU/Linux trigged me to reach out to the project founder and lead developer Patrick Balleux. I figured it was worthwhile to say as his work has a lot of overlap with what we've been doing with the Freeseer project. I've been thrilled to get a chance to converse with an amazing person like Patrick who has done a ton of work with web video/streaming video. More on this later. For now, I highly recommend checking out his project and software. WebcamStudio For GNU/Linux.
It is great to see an ecosystem growing and starting to thrive around open video and capabilities that were not possible a few years ago.
