I'm working on some apps which sometimes need video to be on. The Receive Live Video patch does the job nicely. However — it keeps the camera on even if I'm not routing it's output somewhere, and there's no way for me to turn it off. This means a) there's significant system resources being used for something not required b) Could be considered a privacy issue when the camera is on for no reason…AKA kinda creepy to user.
Wondering if we might be able to add a Device called 'Off' to the device list in this node. Features:
Would not add any complexity to new user
Would not require any changes to existing .Vuo files
