Import live feed into Jitter?

Mar 16 2013 | 8:45 pm

Hey all,

I’m trying to read a video feed hosted on livestream into Max. It seems a simple ‘read‘ 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: – there are feeds at various times, though the URL i’m trying to stream is this one:

Thanks for any advice!

I’ve uploaded the patch I’m using now that crops the jweb feed and turns it into a matrix via jit.desktop, in case anyone has further suggestions (or if it might help someone down the road).

any help would be great on this for me as well. I am not sure if jit.desktop is the best way to do this. There must be someone who knows a better way?
