I’ve recently tried coming back to OF and I’m having an absolute nightmare trying to figure out what’s happened since I last worked with the project.
I built some apps a long time ago in the 0.06/0.07/0.08 era, most of which heavily relied on being able to use ofxVideoRecorder. I gather one of the core dependencies of this addon is no longer supported in the latest OF (Poco), so I’ve been trying to find some combination of older versions which will let me get back on my feet.
Sadly, 0.8 etc won’t let me install dependencies on modern Ubuntu. I can’t run Ubuntu 13 on modern hardware. All the middle ground seems to be a shitshow due to mismatches in dependencies and requirements.
I was hoping that the last of the 0.9 series (0.9.8) might give me some joy, but it’s falling over trying to build OF with more Poco errors.
Please could anyone familiar with the last few major releases let me know which version still supports / includes Poco (and could therefore hopefully support ofxVideoRecorder), and which version of qtcreator goes with it? Every thread I find refers to the ‘latest build’ or the ‘nightly build’ rather than a version, so I’m going round in circles trying failing combinations
I can quickly install either Ubuntu 16 or 18 to suit a working combination, I just don’t know what to look for - if the OS version makes a difference?
Any help much appreciated, I’ve missed this a lot!
