I have the same issue and i’ve seen more reports of it.
Actually the nicest solution would be an entirely new external based on OpenNI. Jit.freenect.grab is a hack from before the release of the official OpenNI libs. NITE skeleton tracking etc could be included in it too.
I’d do it if I had better coding skills. I might take a shot at it anyway but it ‘s gonna take a while, if i get anything working at all…
Same here. I actually talked to JMP about this when he was implementing it but it seemed like an inconsistent problem. I also agree that it would be great if someone picked up Open NI. There’s actually one implementation but I think it Windows only.
