ofVideoPlayer in linux/osx, getCurrentFrame()


I just found that ofVideoPlayer::getCurrentFrame() is something wrong.
(it’s starting with negative value)
I’m not sure it’s related with OF. but definitely different result with windows environment.

for example. …

ofVideoPlayer player 
if(player.getCurrentFrame() == player.getTotalNumFrames()){
         // video ended
         // this block is never run on osx / linux but windows.

video codec : H.264, mp4 file.

I am on OSX and fingerMovie.getCurrentFrame() seems functional. I tried it with a .mp4 / H.264.

It did start out with a negative number, but then progressed with a choppy frame rate.
ofLog()<< fingerMovie.getCurrentFrame();

Perhaps if the fps is slow it is simply not picking up that last frame.
