As we plan to make a non-interactive installation across 1 beamer
and 10 televisions, where all tv’s and the beamer should play an
individual video at the same time, i looked into boygrouping and
tonfilm’s VideoSync module.
I tested it on two pc’s (1 server, 1 client) and followed instructions at Boygrouping,
giving the client the same resources as the server, etc.
When i run the test-patch from the VideoSync-module, everything seems to work,
the client pops up the renderer in fullscreen and the video starts playing on
both machines, but the framerate on the client pc is about 1-2 fps, so the playback
of the video is jittering extremely. I have no clue where i can start to get
What i tried/observed:
- The video runs at full speed, when played back on both machines outside
and inside of vvvv (without the boygroup setup)
- The video is an Xvid-codec, i tried several others, all the same thing, on the
server playing smooth and on the client 1 frame per second
- When i start vvvv on the server in server-mode on the client side a new patch
windows pops up, with two docked instances of the server-patch. why is this?
it seems as if the patch is started 2 times on the client. did i miss sth?
Maybe someone can help me out, as time is a critical factor here ;)
