Community Core Vision (CCV) – Flash Application Setup

For testing and fun, several demo and complete applications can be downloaded in flash (swf) format. The following guide shows how to run the applications using your touch surface and Community Core Vision.

Requirements

  • Flash Player Projector – This is a flash player that runs outside of your browser
  • FLOSC (CCV 1.1 and below only)
  • Java 6+ is required for running FLOSC (CCV 1.1 and below only)

Flash Demo Application Setup

1. Download some flash demos. You can find the nuigroup (MTmini video) flash example clients here and some of my own applications here.

  • If you’re using CCV 1.2+, skip to step 4.
  • If you use an older version of CCV,version 1.1 or below, and don’t have the Send to Flash communication mode option, keep reading or download the latest version.

2. Double-click the Launch FLOSC Gateway. Mac and Linux users, open the file using the terminal.

3. Windows users, make sure to click Start once FLOSC launches. On all platforms, the command line (terminal) should display created.

4. In order to run demo swf files, security settings first need to be set. Go to Flash Global Security Settings. Click on Edit Locations. and then Add Location.

5. In the Trust this location box, put in the absolute path or browse to the folder where the demo swf files are located. Click Confirm and you’re done. Any future swf files added to the demo folder will automatically have permissions set.

6. Launch a flash swf application by opening the file using the Flash Player Projector.

7. Send tracking information from CCV to flash by:

  • (CCV 1.1 or below), turn on Send TUIO in CCV
  • (CCV 1.2+), turn on Flash XML in CCV

8. Put your fingers on the touch surface to see if input is being received. If it is not, make sure to review the above steps and check that CCV is properly configured. If input is received, but not in the correct location, make sure to perform calibration.

Note: If you’re getting a black screen when running a flash application, use flash player 9 instead of flash player 10 here: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/142/tn_14266.html
