Video Support – USB Missile Launcher 4 October 2006Posted by David Wilson in General.
The most requested feature enhancement – add video so that I can target my ‘victim’ – to the USB Missile Launcher software is currently under development.
Soon you will be able to mount your iSight or other Video camera ontop of your USB Missile Launcher, track your target, and fire!
You will probably have to come up with some elaborate mounting mechanism for the camera as it will not fit naturally.
I need some feedback though… Are there any requirements to “record” the video feed. If I need to record, there seems to be a greater coding effort. At the moment I have a working version simply by using Quartz Composer (no coding required!!) but this (I don’t think) will allow the video stream to be recorded. And there is possibly another complication. With Quartz Composer you may not be able to choose your camera (if you have more than one – if you have a Mac with built-in iSight and another remote camera mounted on the Launcher – I don’t know which camer will be used). Quartz Composer is great, but I might have to move away from it.
