This is was now done via the integration of jCapture in Tiki. (which has been removed because it's a Java applet and we need an HTML5 alternative)

Use case: I want to record a screencast via my browser and make available on my Tiki-powered site. Ex.: report a bug, create some documentation, etc. This will be useful to embed images & videos in wiki pages and make Tiki more like Wink, a Tutorial and Presentation creation software (very nice but not open source)

Perhaps in the future, BigBlueButton (they already have an applet for desktop sharing) or Kaltura (this totally fits in their use case) will offer this, but until then...

This one has great feature set:

Last resort

If we can't find something FOSS & Wed-based, we can look into using Jitsi (as part of Tiki Suite) (See also what is being done on the side)
