Hello, I’m having some trouble getting any sort of syphon server to play any sort of video on macOS catalina. Ive seen some folks recommend VLCSyphon(https://github.com/rsodre/VLCSyphon) though it appears to be unmaintained and crashed on launch for me. My use case is fairly simple and my assumption is that the Simple Syphon Server application would like suit my workflow, if only I could figure out how to load a video into it. Is there some sort of documentation that I’m missing?
Simple Server won’t play video – it’s really just a test/demo app.
There are loads of applications which support Syphon and play video – the grid on the Syphon website has quite a few – though many of them will be overkill for your needs, I can’t think off the top of my head of something which only does video playback.
What are you ingesting the Syphon server with? It’s somewhat unusual to have an application with Syphon input which doesn’t also play video itself.
