I'm trying to read a video feed hosted on livestream into Max. It seems a simple 'read http://your.url.here'
should do the trick, but it doesn't seem to be working. I know this should be simple. I'm wondering though, if the fact that the source is streaming a SWF (flash movie) is behind my troubles, and if there is an easy fix for this.
I've figured out how to use jweb and jit.desktop to get a jitter matrix out. However, it seems incredibly inefficient. I'm only getting about 5fps even without a jit.window display. Does reading a non-swf streaming URL provide much better speeds than this?
I'm streaming from this site: http://livefeed.com
- there are feeds at various times, though the URL i'm trying to stream is this one:
Thanks for any advice!
