A more extended description of the command line feature
If a user hans wants to automatically go live on channel piet he could execute this:

procaster.exe -username=hans -password=SomePassword -channel=piet -autogolive

if he already set this up in procaster he can just do

procaster.exe -autogolive

This allows the user to make a task in a scheduler to automatically go live at a scheduled time/date.

You can download this version at from the starting post:
I've encountered a pretty serious issue when trying out this new version.

We have a Decklink Studio and are using the S-Video NTSC input.

When I change the Video settings in Procaster to 4:3 with cropping, the output video appears visible squished. If I open the crop settings window, the preview window is letterboxed where it used to be 4:3.

It's almost like Procaster is reading the NTSC signal as 16:9 letterbox and then cropping it to create 4:3 output. If I disable "Crop source to match", the output is letterboxed 16:9.

Also, the deinterlacing option appears to have disappeared.
