• hi folks,

    i'm in the middle of a run at the Edinburgh Fringe, using f28 on Mavericks. i've got a tough bug to crack.
    opening a scene that contains a Syphon to Video causes an instant crash 9 out of 10 times. i'm using syphon to get an image out of NIMate on the Delicode server channel. The crash also resets a number of preferences, like MIDI setup and video in settings.
    i've implemented a workaround by using a Listener in the show patch and a separate scene with a Syphon to Vid and a Broadcaster. i have to build this broadcaster scene fresh each day before i open the show patch. but it works ok.
    i'll send through a proper bug report when i get home next week.
  • Izzy Guru

    I'd be interested to look into this. Glad you have a work around but Syphon stuff is normally really stable.

    Keep us posted.

  • as it happens, sometimes the crash occurs when selecting the Delicode Server channel within the Syphon to Video actor. possibly the same thing as when the kinect is unplugged, so it could be something to do with the communication between NIMate and the Syphon to Video actor. the show went smoothly this morning, so i'll continue with my planB and update next week with more details...

  • Izzy Guru

    Well glad the plan B is working. What version of Ni Mate are you using? 1.19 or 1.20?

  • 1.20

  • What is the exact name that is showing up in the Syphon to Video actor from Delicode?
    There was an issue with incompatible letters in a custom Syphon stream once before. Just wondering if Delicode changed the name of the stream recently?

  • Delicode Server ::: Delicode_NI_mate

    if i keep switching between server 1 and server 2, after about 3 changes, izzy crashes with the details:
    Exception Type: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV)
    Exception Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS at 0x0000000074634192
    and a bunch more stuff i can send through next week. in the meantime, i hope this is useful.
    today's show went without a hitch.

  • Please COMPRESS (.zip) the crash report(s) and post them here. I'll look today.

  • Syphon to video syphon to image; list expands not correct,

    Jello::::IsadoraCore would be expected

    switched the syphon server off and on 3 times





    the list looks like this, IsadoraCore 2.0 my first test



  • Syphon actors list bug in 2.0…2b. same same,

    not with 1.3 1f06, am I missing some?

    Will wait until this is fixed before I UPDATE to 2.0

    not very promising NOW,

    Just out of curiosity I copy paste the Syphon.framework from 1.5 into 2.0…2b  and tested the result is no list bug!!!

    best ...


  • Dear @rainbow,

    I saw this for the firs time yesterday, and have filed a bug report on your behalf. Will get it fixed.
    Best Wishes,

  • Dear @rainbow,

    This is fixed for 2.0.0b3\. You'll see a new build appear within 24 hours. Thanks for the report.

  • Mark and the team - is there any chance of publishing a patch for 1.5.3f27 that fixes this? i'm halfway through a project and don't really want to upgrade to 2, but i'm having a lot of trouble with syphon to video. this time from a CEF client.

  • Izzy Guru

    There was a bug with Syphon streams that used " : " in the name. I believe this has been fixed.

  • G - yeah, but i can't get the fixed version without upgrading

  • Izzy Guru

    That's down to Mark I'm afraid. Sorry!

  • G - i'm a bit confused about upgrading to 2 vs early adopter. can i install 2 to get the above bug fix, and use it as a normal licensed version without having access to any of the new features?

  • Izzy Guru


    Yes you can.


  • i did it. it works great!

  • Dear all, Mark fixed this long time ago, too sad I do not have money to upgrade at the moment

    best ....
