Look over the issues listed here, and see if your problem already exists, or is already answered:
Please consider these questions in your request:
- Did you launch the platform-specific version in the Mac OS X or Windows folders, or run it from within Processing (http://processing.org)?
- If you're having trouble, please try the Processing version, as it generates more useful error output.
- If you run it in Processing (processing.org) can you copy and paste the debug output from the Processing window and post/send it? That's much easier to diagnose.
- Do you have a webcam and does it work normally in Photo Booth (mac), Cheese (linux), or whatever webcam app Windows has?
- Did you close other webcam-using applications and free up your webcam before launching Spectral Workbench?
- Do you have QuickTime installed? http://www.apple.com/quicktime/
