ofVideoPlayer always starts playing after load ( Macos )

Hey there,

I’m using the latest ofw and while recompiling a project with lots of video players I noticed that the player always starts in a ‘playing’ state, even if I call stop right after load or loadAsync.

I opened a bug report on github ( https://github.com/openframeworks/openFrameworks/issues/6522 ) , but I was wondering if anyone else had the same problem and found a way around it.


I had the same problem.

I used setSpeed(0) when loading the video.
Then setSpeed(1) when you want to play it.

But I recomend using arturo’s GStreamer.

thanks Eduard, that’s a good tip!

I did test the GStreamer block and it’s performance was way better. Unfortunately it was leaking a small amount of memory but it was enough for it to make the machine crash after 18h of use… =/
