    Hello,

    I am trying to use SPOUT to send a video signal from TouchDesigner to WYSIWYG. Spout is a way to transfer video from one program to another. I have no problem starting the video and receiving it with both the test receiver and other software.

    When I launch WYSIWYG, I create a surface and add a video source. Then when I go to the appearance tab and select the video source the application crashes when I select apply. Here is the message I get:

    Description:

    Hi,

    While WYSIWYG does not support such software, it is able to play back video files stored in AVI and MPG containers, as long as the CODEC that the video file was encoded with is installed on the computer running WYSIWYG. In addition, WYSIWYG can connect to any video capture card or device (this includes most webcams) that uses a WDM-based driver, as well as to CITP/MSEX streams (up to the latest version, 1.2). For more information about all this, I refer you to the following threads:
