embed another application window in a patch

I don’t think this is possible, but thought I’d ask! If i wanted to embed the window of another application within a max window, would it be possible? I’m thinking specifically of FaceOSC…

I guess this is impossible then? :)

*Viewing* the application within a Max patcher wouldn’t be too difficult, although may not be what you want, depending on the context. Something as simple as [jit.desktop] would work, but a combination of Syphon and CamTwist would be a far more robust version of this, but OS X only.

Thats a really interesting angle Medd, I’ll look into that for sure, thanks :)
