m3u8 stream into jit.movie ?

    Jul 27 2021 | 11:24 pm
    hi there, i try to get video streams into max. i am using viddll as video engine and the (m3u8) stream is working fine in OBS. when i try to read the stream into jit.movie max stops responding forever. is there any idea, what i can do? also looking for some solution with syphon failed so far - is there any solution providing the stream to syphon and then grab it from there? thanks for any thoughts - klaus

      The M3U8 is not a video stream, it's a audio or video playlist file. You can open the file with any text editor and check the audio/video files' URL.

      thanks for the answer! that is my test-video-stream: https://kontakta.modular-t.org:8443/live/hello5.m3u8 i see it in OBS or with ffplay via terminal, but jit.movie hangs on it.

      Hi there! You can try with NDI -unfortunately costs 20.99- you'd need the NDI-HX app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.newtek.ndi.hxcam) you can then get the stream in MAX either directly with the jit.ndi object (https://github.com/pixsperdavid/jit.ndi) or passing thru NDI-> Syphon (https://docs.vidvox.net/freebies_ndi_syphon.html) and getting it with jit.gl.syphon

      or simply OBS to syphon via NDI and the ndi-syphon app, all free tools
