mergeav with live code 9.6.1

Post by johnmiller1950 » Fri Oct 09, 2020 3:36 am

Greetings All,

I am writing a program using a Powerbook Pro (2019) with Mac OS 10.15.6. My program needs to access the camera to record a video. I have used the mergeav script sample mentioned in the other forums to turn the camera on and record a movie to a file. It all works great. Some of the forums from 2016 mention that the preview stopped working with Livecode 8.1.1. Has any further work been done on this? It is essential that my users be able to see a preview of what is being recorded.

Thanks for any and all comments.

John Miller

Greetings All,

Since there was no response from anyone to my last post, I moved on from mergav.

Does anyone know if mergAV is supposed to work in Livecode 9.6, or has work on it been discontinued?

Using "cameraControl" scripts, I have successfully . . .
. . . created a controller that shows a preview of the camera on my MacBook pro
. . . recorded a video
. . . create a player
. . . play back the video I created

Under the old qt scripts, I was able to edit, copy, paste, and combine movies. Is this possible using Livecode 9.6?

Thanks!
