I find myself in a strange situation with a project I am about to start and actually seek freelance artist to do.
I will be having a computer running an android emulator with Digital Signage app running on fullscreen.
Upon scanning a barcode I want VVVV to switch back to itself and do its thing.
Do you think this can be done with VVVV ?
Thank you in advance.
Once I know this is possible I will post the project to collect offers.
There are a few browser based Android emulators (never tried them myself), if you can run your app in a browser then you can use HTML Texture to switch between native vvvv content and external content (this I did and it works very very nicely.
Bit late maybe, but you can send key combos windowskey+number focus the apps in the quick launch bar, so you could put your android app as the 1st and vvvv as the 2nd, win+1 switch to android, win+2 back to vvvv
Would that help?
well as my skills in vvvv are kinda low so what i said may not be entirely true. I tried what i could think of.
Firstly i tried to start second app (android emulator) via vvvv shell execute. So far so good, i can give it command line parameters and so on.
then i monitor the system processes to monitor if the app is running and if it crashes to start it up again.
it turned out the android emulator i liked does not accept command line parameters (cant start at fullscreen) and the one that i found that could do it was taking over the screen and vvvv could come on top when needed.
Basic idea was whenever a barcode is scanned vvvv should turn on fulscreen and take over the screen to show its thing.
On top of that the client changed some requirements and i gave up on that idea so i posted a project seeking freelancers to do it.
