I am not seeing any camera input. What's wrong?
1. Windows users need to install WinVDIG.
2. Are you getting a signal from other camera apps?
3. Try adjusting the settings by calling settings() in the code.
4. Make sure other applications are not using the camera source.
Are the Director Xtras "Shockwave Safe?" Can I run it from a browser?
Yes. They will work from a browser. Try Demo.
More Info: PegHole has graciously donated VeriSign representation in order to allow the Xtra to transparently download and install onto an end-user's computer. PegHole, SourceForge, and the WebCamXtra/Myron development team are not responsible for malicious, voyeuristic, or destructive uses of this technology. It is strongly recommended that as a developer, you add your own additional pop-up permissions dialog saying "This Shockwave movie wants to access your camera. [Deny] [Allow]." In order to make your shockwave able to auto-download WebCamXtra, you must first modify your xtrainfo.txt in the Director folder so that it includes the following 3 lines of text (Note: Everything between the [ and the ] need to be one long line of text):
Then in Director, choose the menu Modify > Movie > Xtras..., and add WebCamXtra to your list. Make sure to check the box "Download if Needed."
By putting the auto-download files onto our server, the WebCamXtra/Myron team does not guarantee that the files will be there indefinitely. We reserve the right to remove these files from the server without warning. Shockwave publishers are encouraged to distribute their own copies of WebCamXtra.ppc, WebCamXtra.w32, and WebCamXtra.carb on their servers. Note that you should also change the #package field in the xtrainfo.txt accordingly.
