web video stream capture

Hi all,

I would like to grab frames from an internet video stream (for example: http://www.cnn.com/video/live/live.html?stream=stream1) into jitter.

Using jit.desktop, this works fine on OSX. It does not work on windows (XP, I’m running max/msp 4.6.2 , jitter 1.6.2)…there is just black space where the video should be showing up (so I suspect that on windows, it is querying the operating system before, or at a different level than which, the stream is painted onto the display).

Does anyone know of a way around this on windows? Or any other method to get an internet video stream into a jitter matrix?

(worst case scenario: I’ll have an older mac laptop that grabs the frames and sends jitter matrices to me on ethernet…not so bad, but extra equipment to lug around…)

Thanks,
Dan

I use a macs mostly but there used to be a driver that needed to be
downloaded for the live input to work on a windows machine. Did you check
this? I think there is a link in the help file to download the driver.

Oh I read incorrectly. Sorry.
