    Hi,

    I’ve downloaded the latest media tools code from github and it compiles fine and the movie player plugin (titled “v002 Movie Player 3.0”) turns up in qc but I can’t get it to play – any ideas?

    * I’m on 10.8.2 with a 2010 macbook pro with an nvidia 330m
    * I made sure to remove the old plugins from my system before compiling
    * Nothing bad appears in the Graph Foundation log or the console – the only thing I see in the console is the following when I patch in a url from the directory scanner

    * The screen capture plugin (titled “v002 Screen Capture 2.0”) thats for 10.8 only works so the compile went ok
    * Beta’s 1,2,3 and 4 of version 2 of the media player work fine (although beta 4 has bad fps)
    * I’ve tried 32 and 64 bit QC

    Cheers James

    The 3.0 player is limited to codecs supported by AVFoundation. This excludes DXV.

    Also I’d generally avoid using DXV outside of apps which support its accelerated decode (ie Resolume and the few licensed 3rd party products) – it has no advantages without their acceleration.

    Cheers – Sorry I should have picked up on this.   I’d had tried another movie format but I always forget which way to specify the movie to the v002 patch (urls vs filename) and it must have been whilst I was using the url based format that I tried it.

    Thanks again – James

    Also am I right in guessing that the 3.0 player only works in 10.7 and 10.8? whats changed from 2.0b4?

    The 3.0 player currently lacks many of the features of the 2.0 player. It is built on the newer AVFoundation rather than QuickTime, so performance for those codecs it does support is generally improved.

    Build fails for me with Media Tools in Xcode. Tried 32-bit, Intel 32/64-bit, native. I’m a total noob with Xcode.

    Question, sorry — for all the V002 stuff on github, are these the latest greatest, and should I try to get these and compile my own? Much of the old versions still work for me on 10.8.2. What’s best for the folks at v002?

    You don’t say what OS you’re building on or what error(s) you get in Xcode. Check you have populated the v002 Utilities submodule with

    git submodule update --init

    Use whatever works for you. The stuff on GitHub is generally not a polished release and a lot of it (such as the Media Tools) is us trying stuff out.

    Ok, thanks.
    10.8.2, just downloaded latest Xcode because the version I had installed said I needed to.

    Also, I’m on a MBP with AMD Radeon HD 6770M grfx.

    Got Media Tools to build.
    I was confused about populating the v002 Utilities submodule with

    git submodule update --init

    but the v002 Utilities folder in the Media Tools project folder was empty, so I downloaded the contents from github, copied the files to the empty v002 Utilities folder, then the build worked.

    Currently the plugin is in the Quartz Composer Plug-Ins folder with the rest of the v002 plugins I have installed.

    Using a 720p ProRes 422 movie file exported directly from FCPX 10.0.7, plays in QT Player, plays in QC with Movie Importer (though this generates null errors in Viewer Debug mode), plays in VDMX.

    As with the beta 5 version of v002 Movie Player, I have black screen with Movie Player 3. I see nothing obviously related in Console, except perhaps audio/track errors, are they related? The QC Comp only has the Movie Player 3, Billboard and Clear. Here are the console messages:

    Those errors are from a composition with the older v002 Movie Player. Make sure you’re running the correct composition.

    IIRC the Media Tools movie player doesn’t currently support partial path names, etc, so give it the FULL path to your movie file.

    Also just run it in the debugger and step through it and see where it fails. If that’s beyond your comfort levels with Xcode then use Apple’s player.

    Ok, path name got it! Apologies, should have thought of that….

    Thank you! (And well done on being a good mind reader.)

    As far as the errors with the “old” Movie Player, I pulled the old v002 Movie Player (and Screen Capture) plugins out of the folder prior to installing Media Tools, so this was the only v002 Movie Player in the list on QC startup. I also made a new qtz.
