Max 5.0.1, jit.qt.movie and asyncread : error -50
My school is using max 5.0.1 on an iMac7,1 with 10.5.6.
Asyncread and jit.gt.movie kept throwing back the same error when I was trying to "port" an old patch from Max 4 to 5.
Basically, I’m trying to load images from directly from the hard drive and not into ram.
I’ve been able to replicate it in the most basic way possible.
The error is persistent and pervasive:
jit.qt.movie: error -50 creating new movie from file

I’ve included a source Cycling 74 image that I’ve recompresseed as a pct, jpg, and png.
From what I’ve gathered on the forums this is a known bug?
I just asked our IT guys to update to 5.0.5 – still the same problem.
I convinced them to let me test it on 4.6.3 as well (apparently they’re confused as to whether they should have it on their systems or not?) and it works fine. However, they took it back off right after so I’m stuck on 5.0.5…
Is anyone figured how to solve error -50?
Since asyncread works in another thread, I assume you are trying to load a file whose codec is not threadsafe.
A list of threadsafe and non-threadsafe components is listed here:
