making a youtube video into a texture


    Jun 03 2010 | 10:49 pm
    Hi all,
    I'm curious if it's possible to take a video from the internet and use it either as a texture or in a jit.matrix. Yeah, I know the quality is going to be pretty crappy... That said, I would still like to try it if possible.
    Cheers,
    Jay

      have you tried sending a message to jit.qt.movie ? the maxhelp patch for jit.qt.movie says you can send a message 'read ' will attempt to open the movie at the url.
      im trying to do something similar... http://cycling74.com/forums/topic.php?id=26822

      Ok, Jacobrendell I don't think this will work for youtube because it doesn't have a file extension that the read message can recognize (it's simply a link). Strimbob, thanks for the link. It's what I had in mind, except for the fact you have to stream and can't simply save/load the file. Works for my project though.
      Cheers!
