I decided to cancel development on the Kinect plugin for pix_video – please use pix_freenect if you need video streams from Kinect or pix_openni if you need some advanced tracking features as well
videoKINECT (very alpha version…)
plugin for Gem pix_video
* depends on libfreenect
2011 by Matthias Kronlachner
just testet under Ubuntu but should also work in OSX
get and install libfreenect from http://openkinect.org
get latest version of Gem from SVN
copy folder videoKINECT into Gem/src/plugins/
#…/Gem/src/plugins/videoKINECT> sudo make install
this creates the dylib gem_videoKINECT.so in the Gem installfolder-> watch out for the right folder….
have a look at the videoKINECT-help.pd file!
:::THINGS TO DO:::
* possibility to open more than one pix_video with videoKINECT to output rgb and depth image
-> maybe some code has to be rewritten!
* possibility to connect to more than one Kinect
* acceleration sensor output not working
* check other image formats of libfreenect
