making a youtube video into a texture

June 3, 2010 | 10:49 pm

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.

Cheers,
Jay

have you tried sending a message to jit.qt.movie ? the maxhelp patch for jit.qt.movie says you can send a message ‘read ‘ will attempt to open the movie at the url.

im trying to do something similar… http://cycling74.com/forums/topic.php?id=26822

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.

Cheers!
