webcam + Arduino = crash

Hi Jitter,

I am having problems using live video capture with my webcam (jit.dx.grab) and use arduino board at the same time… When I run the patch max crashes and I can’t even end process in task manager. (

could there be a com port conflict issue ? is there a way to assign com port to my webcam ?
Any help or suggestion is appreciated.

Cheers,
Mani

are you communicating from within your max patch to the arduino?
you cannot set the comport for the device (easily), this is assigned by
the system.
but if you use serial communication in your max patch, make sure to
select the right device.
