Kinect + QC – Control video with Kinect data

In my small project I’m trying to control video with the data I get from Kinect. In the first phase of the project I am trying just to play /stop video according to the movement that the Kinect senses. (Movement –> video plays, no movement –> video stops.) I decided to use Quartz Composer in the project because its nice video playback features.

However, my project does not yet work quite in the way I planned. Until now I got to the stage that the video stops and plays, but with a flicker cause the data from Kinect is changing all the time (video plays and stops continuously). It also goes back to the beginning of the video, what wasn’t intended.

Here’s a screen shot of my QC project so far: And here’s a little demonstration what’s going on at the moment.
