Could I use Stellarium for live streaming?

Asked by InternetPlanetariumClub on 2018-01-11

To whom it may concern,

Greetings.

 I am a member of Internet Planetarium Club in Japan.
We would like to explain starry sky in live streaming services and use Stellarium for our plan.
It is a non-profit event.
Could we use Stellarium for live streaming?

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
Best regards,

Do you mean

(1) are there technical limitations that would prevent us from using it
or
(2) would you allow us to use it (license or such)?

I cannot answer (1), but about (2), you are allowed to use it in a non-profit educational event, with a reference to stellarium.org please. Maybe send a URL and time table?

Thank you for your reply.

I mean (2).
It has an aspect as a training for speakers, however it is not "educational" event.
Of course, we would credit stellarium.org as owner of the software.
Is it okey?

We do not have web site but twitter account (same e-mail address), and we hold irregularly.
