spigot~again on window vista part II

September 8, 2010 | 6:59 pm

Hi, I’m still trying to understand why spigot~ doesn’t work with my 5.07 version of max/msp/jitter for windows. I read all the previous discussions but don’t seem to understand. The problem is that after a while using a film with hi resolution, i did hear it’s sound. After turning off my computer ’till the next day, things have changed: The second time I ran my patch the sound vanished forever. I know sometimes technology has its ghosts and we have to light a candle for it once in a while, but I became a little bit upset with this matter. Can anyone help me to solve it? If the problem is fixed with a change of cache like I read in the previous message, I must warn that I don’t know how to do it. Thanks a lot

I don’t know if you need to change your cache location, but heres how with a message (go to the help file, and click on ‘open spigot~ reference’ and you’ll see it right there). Are you sure everything stayed the same and you didn’t just have an audio problem in general? If you moved your patch, edited or renamed your video or opened another patch with the same spigot name (maybe you have two versions of the same patch?), then spigot would have to cache again if set with default cache location.

spigot_cache
0 = next to the original movie
1 = in the user-domain common folder (default)
2 = in the system-domain common folder
3 = in the user’s temporary items folder
(symbol) = in the folder specified by the symbol
On Macintosh, the user-domain common folder is "~/Library/Application Support/Cycling ’74/spigot-cache/". On Windows, this folder is "C:Documents and Settings(username)Local SettingsApplication DataCycling ’74spigot-cache"

On Macintosh and Windows, the system-domain common folder is "(Cycling ’74 support folder)/spigot-cache/".

The temporary items folder is typically invisible and inaccessible to normal users on both systems.
