Newer Mac Video Capture

Instructions summarized from here:

Due to security features on newer Macs, Processing’s video capture examples can’t be opened on those machines (Catalina and >). Follow these steps to be able to use video capture (the first two only need to happen once):

  1.  Install the latest release of  the video library in Processing from here:
  2. In the terminal app, copy and paste the following to remove Processing from quarantine: `cd ~/Documents/Processing/libraries/video; xattr -r -d *`
  3. You HAVE TO OPEN PROCESSING FROM THE COMMAND LINE now whenever you want to use the video camera: `/Applications/`
