Andrew Huang's mideo - using video to generate MIDI data

Iโ€™m not sure if this is the right place to post, but you know. :roll_eyes:

Andrew Huang off of YouTube recently posted a video where he uses a video of fireworks to control his eurorack setup in various interesting ways:

He uses a program he and a friend created a while ago called mideo which can use video to generate midi data. There are a few other videos where he goes into a bit more detail:

I was thinking - merely hypothetically at this point - whether this could be implemented in rack, and how one would do so. Also, whether or not it would be worth it, as you could just use a MIDI bridge (potentially??). There is a GitHub page for it, but it is currently only for Mac:

Any ideas?

Edit the above comment is unclear. What emile does is use the values in the png file as the basis for the sound that is played.
