Hugor is a Hugo interpreter for Windows, Mac and Linux. It’s been around for quite a while now, but it only supported video on Linux. I’ve now integrated LibVLC into the interpreter, which makes it possible to easily support video on Mac and Windows too.
But I need help with testing it on macOS. I don’t have a real Mac anymore and am using a macOS virtual machine. LibVLC does not play video in that due to lack of hardware acceleration. So I need help with verifying whether video is playing correctly or not.
Can you download the test version of Hugor here:
It requires macOS 10.12, 10.13 or 10.14. (If there’s need for older macOS versions, I can put a separate version together for legacy macOS versions.)
The game to test this with would be Future Boy, but since not many people have that game (the demo version does not have video,) here’s a test game that displays a video in a loop:
It’s a better test than Future Boy anyway, since it only displays a video loop and does nothing else. If the video plays correctly, please test whether you get an interpreter freeze when you quickly cancel the video with the escape key on your keyboard. Try and spam the escape key as quickly as possible. See if that causes the interpreter to hang. The test game will allow you to do that easily, since when you press escape is will simply restart the video.
Please let me know if it works
