    Hello everyone,

    I desperately need some help to figure out how to capture video from one application to take it into pure data for my final uni project.

    I heard some things about a Syphon Screen Capturer and wondered if this would be a good way to go, as I would quite like to be able to take the video from Reflector 2 ( and I don’t believe that is a compatible app as it stands?

    What I am trying to do is to take the video from google earth and send it in to pd to generate music. The reason for using reflector would be so that i can use the ipad to explore the virtual world allowing the computer to worry about all the generative audio stuff (not to mention that Google Earth is way more user friendly on the ipad!).

    I saw that a couple years ago this was posted in the syphon forums – a working build of the pd server –

    I wondered if there is any progress since then, or if anyone could send me that implementation as it has expired on dropbox?


    Joe –


    Hi Joe – unfortunately the PD external was only ever implemented as a ‘Server’ not as a ‘Client’. The PD community didn’t offer any help in porting the externals and frankly, we can’t do every possible plugin for every possible app. Please reach out to the PD list and let them know there is demand.

    Anyone can fork and submit PR’s etc.
