News about MaxMSP/Jitter and Windows 8.1

July 12, 2014 | 4:42 pm

Hi,
Does anyone have any news concerning MaxMSP/Jitter and Windows 8.1? Is it Max working properly? I use both Mac and Windows but haven’t been using Max on Windows for quite a long time.
Thank you all.

Hi Marcelo
Jitter quicktime movie doesn’t work properly on max6 64 bit windows 8+ so
you need to use the 32 bit max version .

Max 6.1 32 and 64-bit work great on Windows 8.1. I’ve been running 8 and then 8.1 (when it was available) constantly.

Max 6.1 x64 has limitations in jit.qt.movie on all Windows x64 operating systems. More specifically, it doesn’t use quicktime. Instead, it uses DirectShow. Therefore, it can only play movies which have compatible DirectShow decoders installed.
See release notes http://cycling74.s3.amazonaws.com/support/version_6_1_7.html

Thank you Tada. Does this also interfere with Max for Live?

Hi Diablodale, thank you. I am gonna check the link you’ve posted. Do you work with Direct Show? Does it interfere somehow with your work/planning/programming?
