max standalone crash on mac 10.8.2 after codesigning with entitlements

Jan 8, 2014 at 1:08pm

Scratch that, I see the test you’re referring to now in the link you provided above, thanks..

How did you do this test? I can try with my application and see what happen.

I did the test and I found the same possible files. Now, I don’t know. But can it be possible to open unix file in some way and delete some line commands?

Hi, I’m having a very weird issue with code signing process: I’m using C74 .mxo in my app to communicate with iPhone and this has always worked fine, BUT now my app doesn’t want to communicate with iOS AFTER code signing my app, before code signing works perfect. Any idea?
(by the way, the C74 app designer doesn’t know anything about it and doesn’t want to waste his time figuring this out..)

I am also being rejected by AppStore because of Quicktime API in my project. Although I do not use QT myself, the traces seem to be in Max Runtime and there’s probably not much to do about it. Can we binary hack the runtime so that Apple’s scripts wouldn’t recognize QT calls?

Feb 15, 2014 at 5:36am

That would be an awesome hack if someone could figure it out…

Feb 15, 2014 at 6:49am

Would it be possible to strip out 32bit code from Runtime? If yes, it should help as 64bit Max uses QTKit instead of QuicTime APi.

Feb 15, 2014 at 7:29am

Gave it a try but unfortunately didn’t work. I removed 32 bit architecture from my app using Xslimmer which got rid of some 15.5MB after which my app runs fine. Then re-signed everything, created new .pkg and resubmitted. Response from Application Loader is still the same: Deprecated API Usage being Quicktime API.

Nice attempt! I think we’re just going to have to hope that Cycling can address this…

Feb 19, 2014 at 5:38am

So has anyone communicated with Cycling 74 on this topic? It’s a pretty big deal in regards to how I would like to be using their software.

Feb 19, 2014 at 7:41am

Yes, I’ve let them know about it.

Mar 16, 2014 at 4:43am

Can someone give me the exact step by step procedure they are using to determine whether their app still has QuickTime calls? I wasn’t successfully able to do the test that is in the Apple link provided above. Thanks.

If I understand correctly, no one has had any success in sending an app to the Apple App Store so far? (I mean after the reportedly denied apps with Quicktime API calls)

Apr 4, 2014 at 2:29pm

Unfortunately no..

Apr 5, 2014 at 8:10am

Don’t give up hope guys – I have a good feeling about this. ;-)

Hi everyone,
I tried the “nm” command that TIMETOY suggested and it returned no results.
Does that mean that I do not have any QuickTime or QTKit API included ?

I tried yesterday to upload an app, after testing it with nm, and it was rejected because of QuickTime API usage!
So i guess we wait!


Apr 8, 2014 at 7:55am

Nikolas, you’re using this format for the nm command?

nm -m "" | egrep "QuickTime|QTKit"

If so, that’s weird that you’re not showing any QuickTime usage if so…

Apr 8, 2014 at 9:50am

Hi Dan,
I used the full path of the app.
Where should i put the app to use the command without the full path ? Does it make any defference ?

Apr 8, 2014 at 9:55am

I don’t think it makes any difference. Hmm. Makes me wonder why you are getting refused still.. Anyway, I’m optimistic that Cycling will come through for us..

Apr 8, 2014 at 10:07am

I hope so! Well, I will post if anything new comes up.

Apr 9, 2014 at 2:01am

I hope Cycling will do something for this problem..

Apr 9, 2014 at 10:23am

Just an FYI,

Tried using this, instead of the “nm” command:
otool -L /Path/

It returns the libraries that are linked to the binary.
Although there was no QuickTime linked in my app, it showed this line (among others!):

“/System/Library/Frameworks/QTKit.framework/Versions/A/QTKit (compatibility version 1.0.0, current version 1.0.0)”

Apr 11, 2014 at 6:57am

Interesting, thanks – I’ll report to the folks at Cycling.
