Using Laserboy to convert ilda files for etherdream
« on: October 29, 2015, 01:50:40 pm »
I'm trying to get this etherdream working off sd card but I can't seem to export an ilda file so it plays it.  Or at least I changed something so it doesn't play them anymore.  I think i got a few to work but they were only playing the red channel.

Any ideas?

btw, I can't seem to access my old username c60 anymore and it's not sending me a password recovery.

Cheers

Is there anything you can put onto the SD card that works?

Maybe there is something wrong with the device.

If you have just one working example, you can see what kind of ILDA file it is and go from there.

I don't know that much about the EtherDream device.

Does it work as a regular DAC when you have it hooked up to USB?

I had some files that were working, but they were only showing one channel, the red.   So at one point I did manage to export it properly.  So it does work, and I did manage to get it working with that maxwell program off photonlexicon.  Also the test programs work and get it displaying properly.
The etherdream is sooo poorly documented, I'm having to dig through code to find out how to use it.  Pretty shitty for a paid product. 
It's not usb, it's ethernet. 

I downloaded your newer laserboy with the chil effect but that didn't seem to work so far, although I'm not entirely sure that it's the files or the way I'm trying to choose the files to be played.  You can select them with osc, and there is a playlist file you can put on the sd card, which is essentially just osc commands.  But again, so poorly documented.

Anyway I'll try some more things tonite and post back some results.

Cheers

DUH! I guess I should have known at least that much!

The chil effect is for those Chinese SD card readers.

Chinese ILD!

I've only heard good things about the EtherDream.

I would be surprised if it couldn't read all kinds of ILDA formats from the SD card.

I managed to get it playing the ilda files off the sd card,  not with the autoplay.txt  which is supposed to do it on bootup.  But by using puredata and sending osc messages to the etherdream.   

Now if only I could actually make an etherdream plugin for puredata I'd be set.  Have you looked into pure data? I did manage to make up a Lissajous generator for the laserboy using a bunch of oscilators.  Ran on the pi even.

What do you mean?

Did you write data to a wave file and open the wave in LB to convert it to ILDA?
