MoveTube is software that makes famous YouTube videos come to life. The project was inspired by playing around with the motion in front of a computer screen and customizing ridiculous videos that millions of people can recognize. I used Pure Data to write the code and then exported the folder as an independent software, so that downloaders don’t even need PD. It is fun and easy to use. Every ten seconds the software switches between 6 viral YouTube videos. From there, the webcam on the computer detects motion and manipulates the video accordingly. The actual length of each video is only 4 seconds, and are all edited to correlate with side-to-side movement.
