Selecting Different Movies to Play in Single Window

April 13, 2012 | 10:18 pm

I currently have 12 different RFID tags. When an RFID number is read it causes its corresponding video to start playing from a random point. The complication right now, is that each video is trying to play in the same window at the same time. I attached my patch.

Any ideas on how to get one video to play at a time as it is selected by the RFID?

Hi.
You have the metro connected to all of your jit.qt.movies, so they will all start together. You have to route the metro – eventually with (gate 12) , together with (select 1 2 3 etc). bdw, (jit.qt.movie @autostart 0) avoids the loadbang-stop messages, needing a (start)message afterwards.
Hope this helps,
Best
Helmuth
