making a youtube video into a texture

Hi all,

I’m curious if it’s possible to take a video from the internet and use it either as a texture or in a jit.matrix. Yeah, I know the quality is going to be pretty crappy… That said, I would still like to try it if possible.

im trying to do something similar…

Ok, Jacobrendell I don’t think this will work for youtube because it doesn’t have a file extension that the read message can recognize (it’s simply a link). Strimbob, thanks for the link. It’s what I had in mind, except for the fact you have to stream and can’t simply save/load the file. Works for my project though.
