sync computers

February 28, 2006 | 12:54 am

Hi,
I would like to know if it’s possible to sync 5 computers via MIDI timecode with Max to play 5 movies (one per computer) syncronized.
How I do it?
Is any other form easier/cheaper to do it, like via ethernet for example?
I use high resolution videos and I only can play one movie per computer.

Thank you very much

Thank you very much.

Now I know how to transmit MIDI timecode through computers, but how I can play a quicktime movie syncronised and controlled by the MTC?

Thanks again

To sync-ly play videos on multiple computers, would it possible to work it
out by boardcasting the frame # to display through network ?
