paid job, March 6th deadline, GoPro 5 Wifi video to QTZ input

Headline says it all – I need to get the Wifi Live Preview stream from a GoPro Hero 5 into Quartz Composer. The GoPro spits out low res video via UDP from port 8554. Anyone?

I have not been able to successfully view the live stream using VLC, nor ffplay, yet, but apparently it does work.

Is there a bug in the Network patches in the latest version of Quartz Composer

Hi all,

I'm new to this forum, but this seems like the most active community of Quartz Composer users, and I have a pressing question.

I am having a problem with the Network Broadcaster, Network Receiver, and Network Synchronizer patches in the latest version of Quartz Composer (Version 4.6(151)). Whenever I try to modify either the Port Number, or the first field of the IP address in the settings of these patches, I get a beep and the value isn't modified. I can see no messages in the console. I have tried this on two different machines, both running Mavericks and the latest version of QC. The patches seem to work with their default values, but I can't do anything to change the values.

Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone have an idea of how to work around it?

Thank you for your help!
