Control internal Apple DVD player with Max-MSP ?


    Mar 22 2011 | 2:56 pm
    Hello all,
    I didn't came here for a long time, although I continue my interactive artworks (http://www.thierryfournier.net).
    Anyway, I have a very elementary question (but don't find the answer, nor a max object doing this) : is it possible to send remote controls to the internal Apple DVD Player with Max-MSP (chapter, play, pause, fast forward, skip, volume, etc) ?
    Thank you very much in advance,
    best

      Unfortunately, the cd object disappeared from Max' distribution. But I'm very surprised to notice that vdp is still there!
      Maybe AppleScript with iTunes?

      Hi,
      Yes, I noticed that vdp was always here :)
      Is it possible to know why the cd object - which was nice - did disappear ?

      I think you can access audio files on a CD with sfplay~, so there is no need for cd.
      But as you ask for DVD, I suppose you want movies...

      Yes, I would play movies on a dvd.
