@karistouf in case you use the contribution, you should have installed an older version of vlc, iirc <(=,?)1.9. There are some threads you can look for about this; maybe there’s something in the contribution comments too.
I wanted to suggest you to modify the html, so that you could try to use browser’s native player.
Well, it doesn’t work with HTML Texture. There’s the box, inside it there’s the time-bar on the mask with the controls interface - as a side note, the mask appears always; it does not hide after some secs -, but there are no control buttons (play and volume), and most important there’s no video playback.
Renderer URL works fine, play, pause, jump…
Now, I don’t know if this is by design, I should find the correct devvvv blog entry and see if it says something.
It is very strange however that html5 video tag creates a box with video controls and video interface both broken. It feels like something is buggy. @joreg do I have to post a bug thread about this? Tested this with latest alpha, too. Same result.
Can you stream directly into a video tag as shown https://discourse.vvvv.org/? If there’s a bug, and devvvvs fix it, and you can stream in chrome, then we could say you’re probably going to be fine, no?
the mp4 is readen in chrome with your clipboard, but not in VVVV html texture node
my problem is that i want to get the texture from an IP cam, directly in VVVV without doing dirty tricks like screen capture.
i have bought an IP camera for a personnal project especially just for this notion: receiving directly the stream inside VVVV without third party software.
so to summerize:
in IE i have access to video image from the IP Camera, so i can presume that codecs are well installed on computer
in Chrome, VLC codecs are said to be no more supported (PNAPI type). The version of VLC used is 2.1.3
Render HTML URL shows an image from adress 192.168.1.88 in VVVV x86, not in x64
but the GDITexture node outputs frames, buttons, but not image
if i try with a HTMLTexture node i have menus and buttons, but no image. A message shows that VLC codecs is not installed. Despite any installation i can try to do of any version of VLC
Those tests were done with VVVV 34.2 both x86 and x64 versions.
so, ( @joreg ?) it would be really nice to have access without dirty tricks to that stream. if a Render HTML URL can read it, why cant i have it by a GDI texture node ? and why can t the HTML Texture node doesnt work ?
i am afraid we’re hitting technical limitations here.
Renderer (HTML Url) is internally using IE10, that is the reason why it works. for why GDI-texture does not work i can only speculate that the way IE is using an activeX control to display the image is already kind of a hack that prefents it from beeing captured the way GDI-texture does.
HTMLTexture nodes use chrome internally. so if it doesn’t work in chrome standalone in the first place it also won’t run in vvvv.
