A Look at VPlay on Microsoft Surface

9 minutes, 26 seconds


Right click “Save as…”

Stuart Taylor is a researcher at MSR Cambridge and in his spare time he likes to mix bits as a VJ. He created an application called VPlay that allows him to mix video on a Surface like you would records on a DJ turntable. He stopped by the Channel 9 studio on his way to dinner last week and took a few minutes to show us how VPlay works.

You can see more about the project here.

  • That's the best Surface app I've seen yet. It's like working in Ableton Live session view but for video and sticking in effects and routing stuff in different ways.


    I'm wondering if Ableton Live works well with a Surface? What kind of audio interface does a Surface come with?

    I doubt anyone could do any serious audio work with the horrible latency you get from the onboard sound from the motherboard.

    It just ocurred to me.  This is the UX I was thinking about for Windows Sound in a c9 thread with Larry (the sound man) about an issue I had recording a ring-tone from youtube and trying to figure out how to do it.  Hooking up sound and/or video assets visually this way would be easy and fun.  I guess the current UX could remain same, but *add a Windows app like this (ala a WordPad for sound and video) to help configure and DJ things.  The pipelining thing is a feature that needs this kind of visualization.  Attach a "recording" circle to record.  Drag and drop the Recorded circle to a DVD/CD icon (or YouTube or Zune icon) in the corner to save to devices.
