    When i add this @autostart thing to the jit.qt.movie object and load a film
    with the read message, the start imediatly.
    Is there something more to do ?
    I don't get it.
    Thanks in advance.

      When asking questions of this sort, it's customary to
      provide more intormation. Platform? OS Version?
      Max/MSP/Jiitter version numbers?
      A patch that demonstrates the behavior would
      also be helpful. Smallest version you can make.
      This one's a bit larger than that, but it works fine
      for me 10.4.6, current versions available for
      download at 8:30 AM CDT [I'm normally running
      betas on this machine, so I downloaded to check].
      The simpler test for me (i.e. the one I actually did)
      was simply to instantiate a jit.qt.movie object with
      an @autorestart 1 attribut and read in a movie I
      know has an audio track. I heard nothing, which
      means it's working fine. Jitter Tutorial 1 page 1
      describes why this is the case.

      ok, i have this mail who seems to never has reached this mailing list so
      here i send it again.
      I'm on Mac OS 10.3.9
      Max-MSP 4.5.7
      Jitter 1.2.4
      When i put the @autostart 0 attribute to the jit.qt.movie object and send
      then it a read message to load a film, the
      film starts automatically.
      As you know, it should not.
      Here is the patch in which this happens.
      What am i doing wrong here ?

      This patch works fine for me using Jitter 1.5.x. I can't test it in
      Jitter 1.2.x, but I'm pretty sure that @autostart was working fine in
      that version, too.
