We are about to switch to a new forum software. Until then we have removed the registration on this forum.
I am trying to play back video in processing on OSX. I'm using Mavericks (if that makes a difference, I know it does for other software I use such as Autodesk Smoke)
Currently I've tried MP4 (h264) and MJPEG made from various applications FFMPEG, Compressor, Adobe Media -
By the looks of it - it manages around 18fps. This is low resolution media (720p or less) and all around 5000 Mbit/s.
What is more frustrating - is manually setting the framerate() property and putting the read() function in the draw area appears to do nothing. I'm just using the examples off http://processing.org/reference/libraries/video/ to try and get something happening.
The performance of the playback is all related to the size of the window - at 1280,720 its 18fps, when I do 1280/2,720/2 its fine.
I have checked this all in an empty sketch - my current one has ControlP5, but that doesn't seem to make a difference.
