Emulating a camera


I am thinking of sending a realtime video to a thirdparty realtime compositing program, such as, for example Isadora (troikatronix.com), which would see it as a “live input”, and incorporate it in a larger context.

In other words, I would like to emulate a live camera in openframeworks, which would allow me to instead of recorded or live video, stream a generative video.

How would I go about it?


is isadora FFGL-enabled? then the ofxffgl addon may be an option. http://code.google.com/p/ofxffglplugin/

Thanks, bilderbuchi. Isadora is NOT FFGL-enabled, I’ve been told. However, your suggestion moved me into looking into freeframe plugins for Isadora, of which there is a bigfug streamer, which apparently should allow Isadora receiving streaming video. I am in the process of trying to make it work with Isadora at this point. If that works out, I guess I could stream my video from OF application using GStreamer into Isadora, right?
