ip camera and jitter

Hi everyone,

I’d like to know if it would be possible to get the video stream from an IP camera with Jitter. Maybe via a server…
How would this word… could someone give a clue where to start please ?
I read, in a old topic that jit.qt.movie could read something like this but i would need more info that i cannot find anywhere.

Thanks a lot in advance
S.T

Seb.

Er. I did some mucking about with an ip based camera by writing a
java external to pull jpegs off of its webpage, but its kind o half
finished and a bit broken.

it also lets you control the cameras zoom and pan/scan mode

*shrug*

may not work for your camera though:

vade,
this looks really useful!

i’m working currently on a project where i needs to download a lot of
jpegs from a webserver into a patch and it appears that jit.qt.movie
isn’t really made for that … it keeps crashing after a few minutes
of downloading (specially if it hits a jpeg that is somehow corrupted
or being written to the server at the same time).

already abandonned my hope to use jitter for this
but your java solution seems to be a lot more stable / error resilient.

thnx for sharing!

btw what do you mean with “half finished and a bit broken” ?

well, it could use some better threading control. for example, at
least with the web based cameras, if you switch urls, you still get
some images from the older camera. but honestly its been so long
since ive toyed with it that im uncertain what the issues even are :)

but let me know on or off list what you find. This was based on a
java example that cycling74 supplied. You might be better off using
that one for just image downloading if thats all you need.

And could you please give us a link to that example provided by cycling74 ?
That would be great.

Thanks
