Re: Video capturing with MergAV in OS X

Okay I think I've worked out where I'm going wrong. I'm currently using LiveCode Open Source, as my coding projects are all hobbyist/non-profit in nature. I've just realised that MergAV is only available for Indy and Business users (but MergMicrophone is still open-source.) I guess that means that c...

Re: Video capturing with MergAV in OS X

Hmmm, I'm not sure that I'm actually using a plugin. I was under the impression that all the MergAV externals had been integrated into Livecode as standard. Therefore I've just been trying to call the Merg functions from code. It works well with audio functions such as mergMicrophone but no luck wit...

Re: Video capturing with MergAV in OS X

Hi Martin, Thanks for the reply. I've tried various bits of code, but the last one is actually one of your example MergAV demos (attached here). None of them work for me. In all instances I can't get the webcam to activate or preview, and nor can I record. The preview rectangle remains blank, and no...

Video capturing with MergAV in OS X

Hello. I'm a bit new to Livecode, but I seem to be managing pretty well so far. I've hit a bit of a block in the road when it comes to video capturing however. It seems that the MergAV functions don't seem to work for OS X. I'm using the latest Mac OS X Sierra. What I'm trying to do is record video ...

Re: recording audio

Also you may want to try this little hack:- mergMicrophoneStartRecording test.wav mergMicrophoneStopRecording mergMicrophoneStartRecording test.wav Essentially this starts it recording, then immediately stops recording, and then restarts again. This should (hopefully) remove the initial pop. :)

Re: Video capturing in a post QT world

Thanks Klaus. Do you know for certain that these MergAV functions work with Mac OSX? I'm not getting any good results so far and it looks like much of it is iOS specific. I'm mostly getting handle not recognised errors. Also, the dictionary doesn't have any relevant entries that pertain to MergAV vi...

Re: recording audio

This is my own code which works well for a recording button:- on mouseUp if mergMicrophoneIsRecording() is true then mergMicrophoneStopRecording set the label of button "record" to "Record Audio Now!" set the backgroundColor of button "record" to "red" else mergMicrophoneStartRecording test.wav set ...

Video capturing in a post QT world

Hello. I am somewhat new to LiveCode but so far I'm doing alright. I've hit a snag however when it comes to video capturing. I'm trying to write some code that will preview and record video directly from my webcam. I'm using a new MacBook Pro with Livecode 8.1, and none of the example files or corre...
