web video stream capture


    Aug 20 2008 | 11:17 pm
    Hi all,
    I would like to grab frames from an internet video stream (for example: http://www.cnn.com/video/live/live.html?stream=stream1) into jitter.
    Using jit.desktop, this works fine on OSX. It does not work on windows (XP, I'm running max/msp 4.6.2 , jitter 1.6.2)...there is just black space where the video should be showing up (so I suspect that on windows, it is querying the operating system before, or at a different level than which, the stream is painted onto the display).
    Does anyone know of a way around this on windows? Or any other method to get an internet video stream into a jitter matrix?
    (worst case scenario: I'll have an older mac laptop that grabs the frames and sends jitter matrices to me on ethernet...not so bad, but extra equipment to lug around...)
    Thanks,
    Dan

      I use a macs mostly but there used to be a driver that needed to be
      downloaded for the live input to work on a windows machine. Did you check
      this? I think there is a link in the help file to download the driver.

      Oh I read incorrectly. Sorry.
