That cannot be implemented: the UI that allows you to pick what to share
is provided by the browser, and cannot be customised by the application.

Also, Galene's UI doesn't work like that: it's designed to allow easily
sharing multiple windows (during an online lecture, I will often share my
slides and a virtual blackboard, and during a practical, students often
share an editor and a terminal window).

The ability to have multiple cameras streaming from a single tab is
useful, but it requires some thought to integrate into the UI.

It would not be too difficult to implement RTMP support in Galene; the
problem, however, is that the only codecs that are supported by both RTMP
and WebRTC are H.264 and G.711, and the former is not supported on some
devices, while the latter has atrocious sound quality.
