    Can't load CSV files from Excel


    Vuo version: 

    Fixed in Vuo version: 

    OS version: 

    • macOS 11

    CPU architecture: 

    Intel x86_64

    How severely does this bug affect you?: 

    ●●●○ — It prevents me from completing a specific task with Vuo.

    Steps causing the bug to occur: 

    1. Make table in Excel
    2. Export as either of the following: CSV, CSV-UTF8, Tab separated TXT, Macintosh CSV, MS-DOS CSV
    3. Fetch table in Vuo
    4. No items in table

    Have you found a workaround?:

    I can add that by default (for a Norwegian install at least), Excel exports CSV files with semicolon which makes them a bit tricky to import for Vuo. Maybe the separator list for the Fetch Table node should be expanded, or replaced by a custom separator instead?

    Edit: This is based on a regional setting in the OS, but changing this will break other stuff, so I'd rather not deal with it. I can also see issues with tables exported and sent across different countries.

    Xlsx support in fetch table

    To quickly and easily work with and tables from customers, it would be beneficial to be able to load Excel tables directly. Along with other Excel shenanigans of course.


    Notes from Team Vuo

    Vuo Pro: 

    No — available with both Vuo CE and Vuo Pro


    ●○○○ — Up to a few days of work


    ●○○ — Appeals to current community

    This would only read numeric/text values in cells (not formulas, formatting, graphics, or charts)

    Just remember to have proper network infrastructure if using NDI. With overhead, you can't run too many 1080p streams on a 1Gbps network before you hit a chokepoint. 10 Gbps (or 100 if you have a very spacious budget) is preferrable. An alternative to the Magewells and BM Video Assist is the BM Web presenter which is a SDI to webcam solution.
