Snowmix is a video mixer tool for mixing live and recorded video and audio feeds. The new release includes FD closing, optimization, addition of new commands, bug fixes, etc. On July 30th the new version 0.4.2-beta was released.
Broadcasting involves different aspects like – video, audio, graphics, recording, radio, news, streaming, hardware, etc. Snowmix falls under the graphics area; it supports clipping, masking, scaling and transparent overlay of video, png graphics and text.
This is available under GNU General Public License version 3.0 (GPLv3). This tool currently supports Linux; and team is moving ahead to release it for MAC.
It needs x86 based computer. Depending on the tasks to be performed the CPU power & cores (with / without hyperthreading) are required. e.g. Snowmix runs on an older single core laptop with a single GB of RAM even when doing 1280×720@30fps. While feeding videos into Snowmix, will require more CPU power. If you also want to encode the mixed video stream you will quite likely need some more power.
