A couple of GSVideo tips   18 comments

GSVideo is a Processing library I have been working on for almost four years now (!). It improves video support in Processing by using GStreamer as the underlying multimedia toolkit. The latest release is 1.0.0 and it should be used exclusively with Processing 1.x (the alpha releases of Processing 2.0 already include a simplified version of GSVideo as the built-in video library). Two problems users typically face with GSVideo and about which I receive emails from time to time, are (1) using GSVideo in Eclipse, and (2) exporting GSVideo applications from the Processing environment. So I put together in this post a couple of tips that might be useful in these situations.

GSVideo 0.9 released   24 comments

GSVideo 0.9 is a significant release of this library because it introduces a new methodology to feed video frames directly into GLTexture objects from the GLGraphics library, which often results in a reduction of CPU usage of around 50%. The latest version of GLGraphics, 0.99, is required for this optimization to work.

Projects using GLGraphics / GSVideo   Leave a comment

One of my motivations to develop Software Libre is the possibility to share knowledge and to create potentially useful tools, not only for myself but also for other artists and coders. So, it is very encouraging to see work being done with some of the tools I have been putting together during the last couple of years. Check the rest of this post to see some great projects made with Processing, GLGraphicsGSVideo, and Proscene.

GSVideo 0.7   49 comments

After more than one year in the works, the version 0.6 of GSVideo finally comes out as… 0.7! (I felt that naming the final package as 0.6 after a string of things such as 0.6-pre0, pre1, pre2, pre3, pre4 and pre5 lacked a certain sense of novelty :-) ). In any case, this release has been possible by the contributions of many users and developers, who suggested numerous improvements and pointed out bugs and errors. The package is now split according to the OS platform, click on the following links to grab the version for Linux, Mac (Snow Leopard only , sorry Leopard version still not ready) and Windows.

Live visuals with GLGraphics and GSVideo   Leave a comment

The GLGraphics and GSVideo libraries were recently used by video artist Matteo Ferroni to generate the live visuals he performed live with pianist Ludovico Einaudi and electronic musician Robert Lippok in London and Italy during Eianudi’s European Tour. The visuals are inspired by the journey from death to rebirth painted in the pharaoh Tutmoses III tomb. Check video below.
