Web video streaming in Max

Stream realtime video from a web browser into Max or any program that uses Syphon.

CefWithSyphon (developed by Vibeke Bertelsen) launches a web browser and Syphon server. The Max patch operates a Syphon client that receives a video stream from the server and makes it available to Jitter objects.

How to get Youtube video into Max (jitter) using Syphon and Quartz

This method doesn’t work. Check out this link for a better way 5/2014

Original post…

[another update – having issues with video noise in the quartz viewer 12/2013 – have tried various obvious things without success – overall this is kind of a kluge anyway]

An update to previous post

1. Read this post about QC + syphon

http://cycling74.com/forums/topic/using-jitter-to-display-a-website/

Have installed this plugin with Quartz Composer

http://code.google.com/p/cogewebkit/

Now have installed a Syphon server example in quartz with a youtube video. Load this file:

tkzic/quartz/GoGe WebKit RC3/Example Patches/GoGe Players/Webkit Stuff/SimpleBrowser syphon.qtz

Then run the client example Max help file from Syphon:

tkzic/syphon/Max 6 Help/jit.gl.syphonclient.maxhelp

You will need to add the folder with the syphon externals to your max file path – in my case:

tkzic/syphon/

 

get web video into Jitter
