i just recieved two new philips webcams (nc1030) which i intended to use for tracking in an installation that should be ready in a week.
unfortunately they did not work as expected in vvvv. after installing the latest philips drivers (18.104.22.168), rebooting it works wonderfully in every windows app i tried - except for vvvv.
a few seconds after i insert the videoin node the app freezes (symptoms sound similar to the symptoms described by fluff here. in the latest post of this thread joreg mentions that he might have found the bug and the fix will be included in the next release (beta<20).
my questions: is there a workaround to get the camera going? if not - will the next release be during the next days? :)
if not, i have to look for a replacement very quickly…
… same problem here (beta21) with a Philips SPC2050NC that I bought because the specs looked promising.
vvvv freezes apprx. 5sec after adding the videoin node.
My feeling is, that it is a problem with the strange philips driver and the stupid CamSuite that has to be installed with the camera. The camera also is not working nice with amcap.
You can see an Image in amcap, but everytimetime you want to change basic settings within amcap this CamSuite is popping up and doing strange things.
I doubt these cameras will ever work properly in vvvv (my personal feeling)
big ups for you guys for working hard on improving beloved vvvv!!
Is there any chance to get the Philips Cam (I got the SPC 1330NC) to work in vvvv at the moment?
I’ll have to finish a project by next Tuesday, so I’m afraid I won’t be able to wait for the release of beta22…
Or should I buy an alternative cam right now verrry quickly?
PS.: You mentioned that it worked fine before installing the Philips driver. How can I avoid WinXP installing the drivers? I uninstalled all Philips software incl. cam driver. But if I connect the cam to the pc, it automatically installs the drivers…
