Shared Memory crash

Probably not the right way to do things but I created a sharedMemory EX9 tecture before opening the help patch for the video out shared memory, on changing the camera video format to one that the camera has it killed v4.
Opening the video out first and all is ok…
Just a heads Up!

right, that is due to the first node that opens the shared memory location specifying its size. if the second node accessing the same location needs a bigger size that won’t work.

i have fixed it for beta>16 so that vvvv no longer crashes, but it would just silently not work, as i have no other idea for the moment…

anyway opening the “writer” before the “reader” should always work.
