laptop camera, no image only bars w/ jit.pwindow


December 6, 2013 | 11:26 pm

This is probably basic but I can’t seem to get my laptop camera to register. It shows up in other applications but not in MAX with this patch (see attached). All I get when I connect to the jit.pwindow are vertical bars in the window.

Any ideas?

THanks

You forgot to attach your patch!

I’m uploading my own patch here. Does it work if you select your webcam?

Ideally you should be jit.qt.grab for this. Once you have verified that your webcam works with my patch, close my patch and see if you can get jit.qt.grab to work.

THANKS! That worked. I had missed one of the dropdown menu choices on the camera.

You’re welcome! Good luck!
