spigot~ issue

March 20, 2007 | 6:56 am

Hello -

I am working with a large QT movie that I am simply playing back. I would like to tap the audio of the movie using spigot~. I have run Tutorial 27 and have confirmed in a separate patch that spigot~ works as expected with the sample media in /patches/media. An export message appears in the Max window and the audio is routed into the MSP signal chain.

Unfortunately when I read my QT movie into the same jit.qt.movie object the soc parameter appears to be ignored. There are no export or error messages printed to the Max window. The audio is not routed properly to the spigot~ object.

I am wondering if the sample rate/bit depth of the audio media might be the issue. Here is the relevant info that appears in "get info" in QT Player:

24-bit Integer (big endian)
Stereo (L R)
48.000 kHz

The movie is just under 14 minutes long. The data rate is quite high, so posting it would not be practical.

Any suggestions?
Thanks, Jesse

How long did you wait before determining that it didn’t work? The
first time media is encountered, it has to be ripped to a temporary
file. 14 minutes could take a little bit of time.
