It’s been a while that linux implementation has not been discussed, so I just ask about it. Bangnoise tolds us that Linux needs some requisites features. Is it still the case?
Since the last message of this forum mentionning linux in 2011, Spout has been developed under Windows. So maybe something new has been done on Linux?
Sorry if I’m a bit off-topic. I love Syphon but for some projects, a tiny low-cost arm linux is the solution. And in these cases we loose the fantastic syphon feature.
Syphon shares a texture on the GPU between processes. I’m not familiar with v4loop, but I’m guessing it shares regular memory, which is never going to come anywhere near the performance of a shared GPU resource. Yes, it is technically possible to get an image out of one process and into another, no, it isn’t the same as Syphon (or Spout).
