I am running into a problem with the video playback in OF:
If I understand correctly - ofVideoPlayer should be able to play any video type that is being supported by the local QuickTime player (on OSX) ? (http://forum.openframeworks.cc/t/video-codecs-supported-by-opencv/3301/0).
Yet, on my machine it doesn’t play other than .avi with xvid compression? (I prefer to use .mov so I tried .mov with JPEG A and H264, but neither works in OF).
Does anyone know what could be wrong?
(Using a new macbook pro with OSX 10.7.4 - oF 0071)
Thanks in advance
Edit: I have copied the video from the VideoPlayer example that comes with the oF download. This is a .mov file; but it also fails to playback (shows weird content as if the codec is missing). It does work when I run the Videoplayer example itself…
