why is my patch making xml files out of all my mov files?

January 31, 2010 | 8:15 am

So I’ve got a jitter patch for which I want to be able to select .mov files from a folder by midi message. I used the file browser to export the appropriate folder into a umenu. The umenu is fed by the midi value, and the second output feeds a "read $1" message which feeds my movie player. It works.

However, I see that my folder is being filled with xml files, which is throwing things off. What are these files? What is creating them? Do I need them? Is there a way to filter them out of the umenu’s contents, so that I only browse .mov files, like I intended?

Are you using spigot~..? i was getting my movie folders loaded with xml files when i was using spigot with jit.gt.movie in a patch of mine. some one else might know what is causing this if its not spigot~

Pretty sure this is spigot~ – if you look at the help file (or possibly in the jitter docs – can’t remember) – you should be able to find a message to jitter that sets the default location for these files.
