How to read a movie triggered by a bang

Before going into the problem, here is the patch idea:
-web cam with facial detection
-once held for X seconds a video at 20% opacity plays
-facial detection breaks for X seconds and a 100% opacity video plays over the webcam

The framework is all set, I just don’t know how to get a video to play via a bang message.

I am trying to have a movie play once a bang is sent to it. I am new to Max, and I don’t know how to get results. Any ideas on how to make this happen?

You misunderstand. The video is set up; I just have a have a bang on “read movie1.mov” , but nothing happens.

EDIT: Nevermind. It’s all working. The issue is when I put video through a switch, no video picture comes back out.
