PD patches

Initial version of the Aether webcam upload patch, adapted for PD by Luka Princic/Nova Viator.

Managed to get (firewire) video input and movie playback working in OSX, but the upload part doesn't work - problems with the shell object under OSX.

Some illustrations:

sometimes working, sometimes not...

More about Pure Data:
PD (aka Pure Data) is a real-time graphical programming environment for audio, video, and graphical processing. Pd is free software and can be downloaded either as an OS-specific package, source package, or directly from CVS. Pd was written to be multi-platform and therefore is quite portable; versions exist for Win32, IRIX, GNU/Linux, BSD, and MacOS X running on anything from a PocketPC to an old Mac to a brand new PC.

"In Pd, however, we see the danger of losing sight of the essence of art precisely because it is a part of applied mathematics and logic similar to the early years of media art when the content of an installation sometimes seemed to lie in sending data packets from Linz to Tokyo, Sydney, New York, London and Paris and back again to Linz. (...) That the method of sensory exclusion which lies behind Pd holds certain dangers for dealing with structures of meaning is obvious, even when it is a matter of a method that largely shapes our everyday life and our everyday perception."
