A light-weight native gStreamer GUI for screencast, webcam, and audio streaming

From the project's README on 29 October 2021:

AvCaster is built upon the JUCE framework, utilizing gStreamer as the media backend and libircclient as the chat backend. It is currently capable of recording to file or streaming to an RTMP server with screen capture (full-screen), webcam (full-screen or overlay), and audio (mono or stereo). It is moderately configurable, with preset configurations for streaming via popular servers such as livecoding.tv, and allows custom user-defined configurations to be stored as additional presets. This initial target is GNU/Linux, but it has been designed for portability and includes starter projects for AndroidStudio, CodeBlocks, VisualStudio, and xCode IDEs.
