I recently struggled with stuttering video playback when changing video files loaded trough the Filestream node. After some research here in the forum I read a sidenode about that smooth change of video streams from the harddrive is possible with the Filestream2 node.
I tried it and viola, works stutter free.
The first drawback I discovered was that it didn’t play any sound of the video through an AudioOut.
When I go fullscreen while having the Filestream2 node in a patch, the render window just turns grey and stays like that even when switching back to windowed mode. I attached a txt file containing the error messages that are put out by a TTY renderer.
I’m running the latest version of vvvv, Win XP SP3 on a MacBook Pro, the movie is an AVI file with picvideo mjpg and uncompressed audio.
Any guesses or suggestions?
