Re: Video capturing with MergAV in OS X

OK I answered my own question re requiring the adding of the mergAV.bundle file to 8.1.1... I found the mergExt externals in the LiveCode 8.1.1 application package. They are all in Contents/Tools/Ext. I was looking in Contents/Tools/Externals before. I did notice that the package as mergAV-4.0.19 wh...

Re: Video capturing with MergAV in OS X

OK It seems I may be wrong about adding the mergAV.bundle to the ~/My LiveCode/Externals folder. I just tried removing mergAV.bundle from the user extensions folder I have set for LC 8.1.1 restarting it and opening the mergAV demo stack and I get the same behaviour. - Camera appears to be initiated ...

Re: Video capturing with MergAV in OS X

Hi The 'can't find handler near "mergAVCamStartRecording"' error indicates that the mergAV handlers in the external are not available. Yes LiveCode has incorporated the MergExt exterals into the LiveCode product offering but It seems you still have to put the specific externals you are using for you...

Re: Video capturing with MergAV in OS X

Hi

I just tried with LC 8.1.1 and MergAV 4.0.21.

With the attached stack
- camera is initialized
- preview is not visible
However
- clicking 'Record" then 'Stop' will record a movie "output.mov" to the ~/Movies file as expected.

I wonder what is going on with preview in LC 8.1.1?

Re: Video capturing with MergAV in OS X

Hi I tried this on my Mac OS X 10.10.5 with LC 6.7.3 and I got both the preview working and was able to record a movie and the out put movie file was saved to the correct location. I tried the same with LC 8.1.0 and I did not see the preview but I was able to record a movie. I will have to figure ou...

Re: Video capturing with MergAV in OS X

Hi

Yes mergAV capturing works great for me on Mac OS X up to Yosemite on my Macs and Sierra on a customers Mac. Are you using an external webcam or the internal one?

How are you initializing the capture? Can you give an example of some of the code you have used?

Re: How to submit proposals for changes?

I suppose the best way is to go to the LiveCode Quality Control centre and enter an 'Enhancement' request instead of a bug report.

Re: LiveCode to Education Industry API- Community project

Hi Todd et al Thanks for all your work on this for the benefit of the community. I would be willing to contribute where I can. I have done some research on TinCan/xAPI and can see how the learning statements would be helpful to track students progress and then annotations on their work in my applica...

Re: LiveCode to Education Industry API- Community project

I just saw this post today so missed the meeting. I am interested in this as well. There was another thread on this recently on the use list so you may find others who are interested in this there.

What was the outcome of the meeting. I am interested in being involved.

Thank

Reloading preferences in Mac OS X El Capitan gotcha solved

Other LiveCoders already probably know this but I thought in case someone doesn't it may save them some time. I use the GLX framework which has functions for working with the preferences .plist file saved in the ~/Library/Preferences directory. I was trying to resolve an issue with saving a .plist f...

Re: GLX Framework based app and El Capitan Mac OS X 10.11.6

Hi Trevor and James. I found this was not an El Capitan issue. Just a silly mistake on my part but one made sillier because the script editor did not notice its silliness. The handler where the error occurred was supposed to create a .plist file for the app if there was none in the /Users/Library/Pr...

GLX Framework based app and El Capitan Mac OS X 10.11.6

I have a GLX Framework based application and am having problems getting it to launch in Mac OS X 10.11.6 El Capitan. It works fine on Yosemite. I am using LC 6.7.3. The problem is that when the main stack opens there are handlers in it that the first scripts that run can't find. It seems that El Cap...

Re: lcVCS Docs

the reason why stack files with the normal extensions (.livecode, .rev etc) are ignored is that IcVCS doesn't (can't) track these but tracks the exported .vcs format file(s). Yes as I understand it lcVCS can't track the .livecode files because they are binary. I think script only stack files are di...

Re: lcVCS problem

Hi There are ways to get a handle on false diffs. One of the reason these are created is if the properties of objects change whether intentionally or unintentionally. This could be as simple changing as height or width or location. You can eliminate these by putting an lcVCSExport handler in each of...
