If you’re using Linux and streaming anything, the Fedora Project wants to hear from you. (Podcasters too!)
Why? On this recently published Fedora Wiki page
, Christian Schaller (Director for Desktop, Graphics, Infotainment & i18n at @RedHat
) explains that the the use case for live streaming has skyrocketed in the last decade. Whether you’re a gamer, a coder, a podcaster or just someone physically separated from loved ones, it’s become almost a utility rather than a luxury.
These use cases have only been amplified by the pandemic.
In a nutshell, the Fedora Workstation Live Streaming Compatibility Initiative aims to “make sure that Fedora Workstation has the best out of the box experience for the software and hardware.”
Every initiative begins with a first step. In this case, it’s listing the strengths and weaknesses of Linux compatibility. Then, the exciting part: articulating potential partnerships with hardware and software makers.
Key to this discussion is that Fedora wants to partner with entities “that have an interest in both upstream and downstream enablement.” Meaning, of course, that it wants the entire Linux ecosystem to benefit.
The initiative clearly states that Fedora intends to gather support from vendors and industry players to build moment around this.
“The list on the wiki is currently a bit of a brain dump of what we found so far as being used,” Schaller tells me. “Our hope is to define a subset of the items on the page as the MVP and then work on outreach to the manufacturers and see how we can help the software communities on that MVP.”
Plainly put, your input is valuable to the Fedora Project on this one. If you’re creating content on Linux, give Schaller your feedback.
