Find Cartoon Mesh : Win a DRK

Things are still a little slow because of the holidays, so I thought I would reward regular readers of my weblog with a contest. Sometime this week, I am going to place Cartoon Mesh (see right) somewhere in a post on my weblog. The first person who finds him, and then posts the URL where he can be found in the comments section, will win a copy of the Developer Resource Kit Volume 2.

If you are looking through some of the past pages / posts to find the image, and come across a particularly useful post, make sure to post it in the comments. It helps me determine what type of info you find useful for me to post, and it will allow me to put all of the entries in one post.

HOWTO : Streaming XBOX to the Flash Player via Flash Communication Server

Some time ago I had done a simple experiment with the Flash Communication Server and my Xbox. I broadcast myself playing SSX Tricky, and Halo to about 50 people via the Flash Communication Server and Flash player. I have had a couple of requests to explain my hardware setup, so here it is.

It is actually pretty simple, and consisted of:

XBox --> (RCA Cable) --> Sony Mini DV --> (firewire) --> Mac iMac -- > Flash Player

The Flash Player recognizes the Mini DV as a camera and uses it like a webcam.

I set the Mini DV to VCR and then just started playing the XBox. The Mini DV basically acts as a bridge between the XBox and Flash player.

If you have any questions or would like some more info, post your questions in the comments.

FlashForward 2003 - San Francisco

The next FlashForward has been announced. It is March 26-28 in San Francisco. It looks like it is starting to shape up to be an exciting conference (as usual). I will be doing a session, and we (Macromedia) are also planning a couple of other surprises.

You can find more info on FlashForward here.

I'm back / DRK examples

I hope that everyone had a good holiday. I am back from some "time off" and am trying to get back into the swing of things. It looks like I finally have the resources necessary to post some DRK 2 (or 1) examples online, so if there is anything in particular that would like to see, let me know.

More posts a little later...
