Difficulty installing ant,

Is ant necessary, or can it work using normal command line installation? Looking at the Ant website, it doesn't seem to have Linux instructions.

Update: I think I found it, though it's not very straight forward.

Even when trying to run the java app directly I get this error:

http://Error: Could not find or load main class .home.sarah.Downloads.myrobotlab.jar

Download from the link here above the shoutbox

Make sure your computer has java -  open a command shell and type the following

change directories to where you downloaded myrobotlab.jar and type the following

This installs all the services, it might take a while, but you only need to do it once in any new installation of myrobotlab.

Once that is done you can type the following to start the UI

You should see this.

You can go to the service tab and look for the OpenCV service - right click it and select "start". This starts an instance of the service selected.  You must name it ... I chose the name "cv"

This is a computer vision service - it will process video or pictures.  I pressed the "url" button and put the following link to a youtube video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=apzXGEbZht0

Then change the press capture type to FFMpeg.

Then press capture.

There are many other filters and other possiblities ...  good luck
