VLC Syphon crashing

Post by floris » Mon Aug 12, 2019 8:22 am

I can't get my VLC Syphon to play video.
The program always crashes when a video file is imported.
I tried multiple files. Any idea?

not really but if you just want to play video into syphon I've successfully done it with both processing3 and praxis_live and then routed them into lumen and out of the macbook into visual cortex - it's programming but not difficult and there are a lot of examples

does the same video play normally in VLC, without syphon? as this would be my first thought - there's an issue with either the video itself or in VLC

are you getting the send crash info to apple? reading that may give some clues

Utility modules are the inexpensive, dull polish that makes the expensive, shiny modules actually shine!!!

an oscillator is an oscillator - utilities are possibilities
