oscbonjour – crashing max

I am running OSX 10.7.1 with max 5.1.9 (everything up to date). I have a basic and simple patch that uses the external oscbonjour and for some reason when I first built the patch, the one oscbonjour object worked fine.

I quit out of max and reopened the patch and it immediately crashed max. I tried a few times with the same results. So I restarted my computer and reopened with the same crash. I eventually went into the text file and removed the oscbonjour object. My patch opened fine and as soon as I added the oscobonjour object back it crashed.

Any clue as to why this is happening or how I can fix it?

I’m open to any suggestions or troubleshooting suggestions

I should also mention that I have used oscbonjur a few times with the same computer and same versions of my OS and max.

So nothing really has changed…

Well I found that IRCAM is no longer maintaining oscbonjour, the last update was in june of 2006. But they recommended a different external that is “more powerful”. You can find it here:

I don’t know exactly what oscbonjour does for you, but I have some zeroconf Max objects here:

Yup, thats the objects that I posted a link to. I just didn’t say what the names where.

But thanks!

Hey guys,

If you feel like using java for this, maybe you could check out these:

@Mattijs Did you build these java externals? I’ll check them out soon.
