Qweb library has been released this night!
Qweb is a collection of puredata python objects that performs web research to find texts, images and videos to use in puredata.
It supports twitter, flickr, youtube, jabber, RSS, wikipedia, and general web elements like images and pages.
It's pyext based and should work on all platforms.
I already uploaded it on http://puredata.info/downloads/Qweb/
You can find some video example at:
just to share this abstraction I'm using in my recent patches.
Mediagrid is a graphical file chooser.
It is based on videogrid external from Sergi Lario and Lluis Gomez i Bigorda.
Apart to be an abstraction and not an external, the main difference is
that mediagrid is cross-platform and you can manage audio file also
and no just video or images.

Crazy A/V Machines: a puredata workshop
Monday to Saturday September 27th-October 2nd 12:00-16:00
NK Elsenstr. 52 2HH 2Etage 12059 Berlin
Oscar Martin and Luca Carrubba
The aim of this workshop is to learn simple programming strategies for the creation of audio/video software tools for live performances. Generative or interactive piece of software that let artist creates and controls a video stream or an audio processing in real time.
During the workshop we will use Pure Data, a free (as a bird and as a beer) graphical programming language particularly focused on the processing of audio and video data in real time. Pure data is a tool for artists whom wants experiment with a
different creation pattern, with a freedom to build from the scratch they own instruments or interactive installation. You dont need to be a programmer to begin to build your tool. In 5-6 days long workshop you will learn the basis of language, how to manipulate or create a video and how to play with audio. At the end of the workshop all participants will play in a jam session together in the Lab space or exhibit their prototypes.
Participation is limited to 12.
workshop program and registration:
when Art become pratical
we call it technology.
When Technology become useless
we call it Art
at audiogames we used blender 2.6 and pdextended for our 2.0 version of the installation:
We used this OSC.py lib for blender:
This code in order to receive:
And this to send (look for send_osclocation function)
All the code is gpl, so just study it and reuse
Hey playmodes, nice to see your project here!
I have made something similar a couple of years ago. I remember I used pd-extended. But I think it's possible to do it also in pd-vanila (or you have to compile external for your libpd version).
This night I will check and let you know.
you can use Qweb library for that:
Here a video with an example:
