hi, list ! hi, zack !
first off: big congrats for ofelia !
this is a great addendum to an already great software !
here's a problem though:
i'm on windows 7/64bit and tested ofelia 0.3.1 on PD 0.50 (64 bit)
image examples and camera-capturing work alright, but i am having no
luck with the playback of video files. When opening the
"loadDisplayVideo" example, the PD console says:
ofDirectShowPlayer: Cannot load video of this file type. Make sure you
have codecs installed on your system. OF recommends the free K-Lite
so, i did. it pretty messed up my existing codec setup and even kept
some programs from showing video files anymore. plus i only managed to
play back the example movie fingers.mov (which is h264) - unfortunately
no luck with my most used mjpeg codec videos, that work perfectly well
with GEM, MAX or VVVV ...
so i had to uninstall k-lite again and revert to ffdshow ...
what i'm most interested in is: what explicit codecs is ofelia supposed
to play ? or rather: what is the video decoding backend of ofelia ?
mine is as i said ffdshow (or rather VFW with libavcodec), but ofelia
doesn't seem to support that. any ideas ?
thanks & best
