While researching what framework to use for a large distributed multi screen installation I was testing Juce and it seems to be a very good option.
Compared to Cinder/OF, its commercial backing and thus better documentation and support is appealing, as well as its advanced UI system. The JuceDemo project shows off all features we need, except for the network syncing and probably asymmetric camera frustum tricks that are on our todo list anyway.
However the only thing I couldn’t get to work easily was playback of video on Windows. On Mac the Video Playback demo in the JuceDemo project shows up and works great. But apparently JUCE_DIRECTSHOW is not defined on my Windows system and thus the demo doesn’t show up.
Would it be possible to provide a step-by-step guide to installing the correct codecs and other requirements on a clean Windows 7 or 10 system in order to optimally play a h264 encoded movie with Juce?
