    Webcam and Madmapper issue

    by AgentD » Thu Apr 27, 2017 4:54 pm


    I am having a hard time to figure out the issue which is that Madmapper keeps losing the live video feed from the webcam connected to the Mini Mac.

    My installation includes the surface which projects the live video feed from the webcam. So, I have a circle Quad set to feed from the webcam and if I restart the computer it works fine. But after a certain time, let's say a couple of days, the madmapper loses the video feed in and it requires someone to restart the computer. The web cam itself is working fine with FaceTime, Quicktime and Photobooth with no interruption. Only with the Madmapper it loses the connection from time to time.

    I am using the latest Madmapper.

    Does anyone have any suggestions or similar experience? If you do please share, I really appreciate it. Thank you!

    What do you mean by "external camera" ? Internet ? Ethernet cable ? USB ?
    MadMapper supports getting a camera stream through the system components (DirectShow on Windows, AVFoundation on macOS). On macOS if you can look at the camera with QuickTime, it should work in MM. On Windows, if you can see the camera with AMCAP (free ms sample), you can use it in MM.
