Web cam on Windows

    Apr 19 2010 | 11:41 am
    Iv got a problem, iv got a mac pro that dual boots. Got max msp on the pc side but the web cam does not seem to want to work. In the error box it says "could not create video channel -9405", and "error opening device for grab".
    Anyone have any ideas of what to do...?

      when running the patch on the PC side, change jit.qt.grab to jit.dx.grab.
      (Alternatively install WinVDIG, if you can find it, that enables video digitizers under Quicktime in Windows)
