Subject: VideoIn

I am having problems getting the VideoIn object to work. Does anyone have
any suggestions?

I am using a b&w Connectix QuickCam with the following hardware and

  Quadra 650, SYS7.1
  VIdeoIn 1.0b2
  QuickTime 2.1 (also tried 2.5)
  MAX 3.0
  QuickCamVideo 1.1 extension
  QuickCamMic 1.1 extension

The QuickCam works correctly with its own applications.

When I start, I get these messages in the MAX window:

  VideoIn error: SGNewChannel failed: component not found
  VideoIn error: SGGetChannelDeviceList failed: error #-32767

When I send the "settings" message to VideoIn, I get:

  VideoIn error: SGGetVideoBottlenecks failed: error #-32767

When I close, MAX crashes with:

  Application "MAX 3.0" has unexpectedly quit with error type 1

I would really appreciate any suggestions that would get this to work.
I would like to use it with dancers for interactive performance.

Sorry for using the strange-looking telegram style where I double vowels
instead of using accents which sometimes don't pass well through the mail.

I was once baffled by sfrecord~'s ability to keep up, too.
David Z. once sent us the following advice:

I know this is vague. Remeelem hogy segiit egy kicsit.

Some of the inexpensive PCI-bus video cards can double and quadruple pixels
(i.e. zoom in 2x or 4x) during playback without slowing down the system.
Maybe such a thing exists on a pc card?  Projectors I'm familiar with can't
expand more than about 2x.
