Syphon source from Live itself

Dear all. I started a new topic since I could not find other posts with the same particular issue.
I built a jitter patch (all textures, OpenGL) and converted this to a m4l device. It contains a named that follows the drawing context. The idea is that I capture the output with Syphon and bring it back into Live via ‘External In’. The m4l device works fine on its own window and I am able to capture Live’s output in Syphon Recorder. But it is not visible in VideoSync’s output window…
I know that something IS coming in, because I get to watch 1 single frame when in ‘External In’, I switch back from “Track” to “Syphon”. But after that nothing - a black screen.
This is on Intel Catalina, MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019), 2.6 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i7,
AMD Radeon Pro 5300M 4 GB and Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB
VideoSync 1.4, Live 11.1
Any ideas?

Hey JB,

Are you able to receive the syphon feed from your device without issue in other applications, like Syphon Recorder or OBS?

Indeed, in Syphon Recorder.
And I can had the same issue on M1…
But: just to let you know that the issue is solved in 2.0.0!!!
