Kinect V2 Windows skeleton tracking Which addon and version of OF

Maybe I missed something but I wanted to get some advice on which kinect addon is best to use for getting skeleton data with windows 8.1

I have Elliot woods https://github.com/elliotwoods/ofxKinectForWindows2 this requires OF 0.9.0 is there a specific commit to use or recent nightly build or branch or can I just go with the latest?

Joshua Noble’s common bridge https://github.com/joshuajnoble/ofxKinectCommonBridge
This seems to be outdated as the SDK has been released and updated

and Joshua nobles https://github.com/joshuajnoble/ofxKinectV2
With the kinect API. This also requires a specific commit of OF https://github.com/liquidzym/openFrameworks/tree/VS2013

Any advice would be great, I have very limited internet and before I leave things for hours downloading I wanted to get a headstart.

The only SDK version I seem to find on the MS site is KinectSDK-v2.0_1409-Setup.exe is this appropriate for any of these addons?

Cheers

Fred

Hi @fresla, I’ve been using Elliot’s addon, but with the 0.8.4 compatible branch:

My environment is this addon + oF 0.8.4 + VS2012 and everything is working ok.

you can also use @jahyadotnet’s addon https://github.com/microcosm/KinectV2-OSC

@micuat Cheers, I will go for
https://github.com/elliotwoods/ofxKinectForWindows2/tree/0.8.41

@genekogan I did try @jahyadotnet 's addon https://github.com/microcosm/KinectV2-OSC but only the standalone pre compiled.
