Streaming internet radio in Max/MSP…
I have found a couple of topics from way back about this, but no solutions. Oggpro seems to be out of action, shoutamp~ has disappeared from the web.. PD appears to have a couple of objects but they require compiling; I am on a windows 7 machine and this is not something I want to delve into unless absolutely necessary.
I’m in the same position as yeter (except on mac too).
hello, you guys can use olaf matthes shoutcast~ object to stream mp3.
right, its hard to find olaf´s stuff in the web…i mailed olaf and he send me the win/osx external.
also concider olaf´s oggcast~ object to stream ogg:
hey mark, oggamp~, shoutcast~ and oggcast~ works fine for me running max 6.1.2 on osx 10.7.5.
for a current audio streaming project i used olaf´s object on a win 7 computer.
so, maybe you have an outdated version, or multiple versions of the objects in your searchpath?
the best would be to contact olaf directly … he is a kind guy and will help you.
hi johannes, do you have the Pro versions of oggamp~ and oggcast~ for OSX? I have been trying to get in touch with Olaf about getting them, but have not had any success…
i managed to get Robin Gareus’ externals. They are available here, though they are unmaintained.
The binaries are still online at:
It’s been more than 3 years (OSX 10.5) since I last looked at it, it
should still work, but I don’t know. Please let me know if you encounter
any problems, so that I can warn others.
I don’t maintain this external anymore. I neither have a MAX/MSP
license, nor do I own any Apple devices. On the upside, complete
source-code is available from
Thanks a lot! That was helpfull!
