Hi, I’m working on a small thing where I’m switching live cameras through VVVV. They’re all online mjpeg streams.
I managed to get them in, but they’re not working entirely how I have in mind. Here’s the thing:
When I load them a window pops up saying if I want to save the file (video.mjpeg stream) or find a program online to open it - similarly to when you want to save stuff in the browser. Wheter I accept or reject makes no difference.
My main problem is getting the mjpeg streams fullscreen. When triggered all I get is a white page with “navigation to the webpage was cancelled” for some reason even though in the thumbnail window they show up fine.
Here’s a screenshot from my patch:
Probably wrong nodes or badly connected? Any help fixing/finalizing the patch?
Hi @joreg, thanks for the tip. I download a newer beta and it helped in the sense that I simplified the patch according to the included example, realizing I didn’t need some nodes I was using, thus making it cleaner. It was a bit of a hassle to get it running on Win 10 though. For some reason the latest Visual C++ 2015 wasn’t present and when I clicked “web setup” it didn’t work, so I had to find and download it manually.
My only issue is now the fullscreen mode itself, with two aspects needed to be solved:
Is there a way to hide VVVV (or it’s UI) and keep the patch running in the background? And is there a way to make fullscreen VVVV itself so it isn’t switching between windowed and fullscreen mode when the action to switch the stream is triggered?
If I connect a projector, fullscreen doesn’t work. What happens is the projector starts searching for signal every time the stream is triggered instead of outputing the stream. Is a bad projector/desktop setup at fault or I missed something in VVVV?
Here’s an updated screenshot of my patch. The thing on the left is for the range that triggers the stream to go fullscreen.
