Stream Embedded Flash Video (.flv) from Http?

June 25, 2010 | 11:39 am

I’ve scoured this forum looking for info about streaming video from sites like YouTube and Vimeo. I found one solution for YouTube here:http://cycling74.com/forums/topic.php?id=22062

But the structure is very complex and not easily adaptable (at least not for me). Any other thoughts? I have the codecs to play Flash in QT – but how do you pass embedded video from a site? I tried to simply ‘read’ it into a jit.qt.movie object but it crashes every time.

Maybe I need to video capture the screen and read from that file? Any ideas/suggestions?

maybe try asyncread instead of read?

the complexity of the nesa’s youtube mixer is the result of trying to get a movie url from a youtube page url. if you have a direct link to a movie, it’s simply a matter of reading it into qt.movie.

either post a patch that’s not working or give us a link of a movie that crashes max. actually, both would be best.
