What is Galicaster?
Galicaster is a Multistream Recorder and Player designed for mobile equipment without requiring a Internet connexion, allowing us to record, tag and review multistream material, all together in one application.
Galicaster is integrated in the Opencast Matterhorn project, an international, free, open-source effort on educational multimedia content from which we would benefit from, taking advantage of all the tools within to process and distribute educational material. Once Galicaster is settle in, we can edit and modify metadata, ingest Matterhorn Mediapackages, handle series of recordings ...
Other important feature of Galicaster is that we can control in realtime the parameters of the capture (proper recording, volume characteristics, video quality...), viewing on place what we are recording.
Galicaster is been developed with GStreamer and Python, so it is a heavy application fully based on free software.
