import live streams/online movies

February 14, 2007 | 3:43 pm

Is there any way to play online movies by using the address of it in Max/MSP? Like grabbing content from google video or youtube?

I’ve searched the archives but couldn’t find a clear answer.

Also, if not possible in max, can I send the address I want to use from max in a string to a 3rd party app (or let max open shortcuts on my pc)and once opened grab the content from for instance a movie player back to max again?

Is it possible to communicate with other apps?

I checked out jit.desktop but it’s not very efficient because I understand it needs to be open in the background and I have to use fixed positions.

The thing i would like is for max to open a page on youtube or google video by sending an url with the tags of the subject I choose and then open for instance the most viewed or most recently added movie.

Is this too far fetched?

Hi Bart,

Dunno about google/youtube – aren’t those both flv formats? Search
the archives about FLV files I don’t think they’ll play in QT. MOV’s
will work over the web though:

Thank you for the patch.
True, they are a different format.

Is it possible though to grab unsupported formats from a mediaplayer?

If you want to go for the possibly lame, there’s always jit.desktop.
