I Vade, for what it concerns LPMT and Syphon: I’m using ofxSyphon on the client side, and it seems I have no way to know the name of other applications implementing syphon servers eventually present on the system and serving frames I can pick with my client.
I saw that the simple demo client distributed on syphon site has a dropdown box where names of servers running are displayed and you can switch from one to another, so I guess it is possible to do the same, but not being familiar at all with objective C I don’t know how to eventually tweak ofxSyphon in order to be able to do that. Do you know how I could check for servers’ names with ofxSyphon?
I’ve just committed changes to ofxSyphonClient to get the server and app name for a client.
If you want to present a list of available servers, that’s beyond the current ofx functionality. Syphon.framework is hopefully well enough documented (with example code) that you could use it directly, even if you’re not familiar with Objective C. The source for Simple Client comes with the SDK.
