Made with KShare itself, of course :)

You have to obtain the dependencies though.

On systems with FFMpeg pre-3.1 you need to apply OlderSystemFix.patch to recording/encoders/encoder.cpp. On systems with Qt pre-5.7 you need to install the Qt version from their website. You can attempt to curl | bash
