Boxtream is both an audio and video encoder and streamer and an assembly of audio and video hardware.
It is designed to easily record and stream live presentations including a presenter and synchronized slides, or slides only, or presenter only, and was built to stream live courses over the Internet for distance learning students. It supports Extron video switchers (Kramer support is planned).
The project can be entirely controlled remotely over XML-RPC, and includes an X11 interface built with wxWidgets. It supports five different streaming scenarios. The software can still be used without most of the hardware included in the original boxtream project.

What's New in This Release:
- This version fixes a very old bug which prevented boxtream's GUI from working with wxWidgets 2.8.
- A lot of minor bugs were fixed.
- The audio and video quality sliders are now percent based, instead of being based on the audio and video codecs.
- You can now overlay a picture (e.g. TV logo) from the start of encoding without any need for mouse clicks.
