I realized that a buffer~ initiated without a length can not be accessed by functions anymore. At least on my two machines, both os 10.6, max 6.1.3 See:
buffer doesnotwork is epmty here, buffer works is initialzed correctly.
I can change my buffer objects in max (opening them up with audi off) and add an inital lenght, but live instantly crashes when loading a device using this method (I use it a lot for windowing).
So here is the Question:
Any idea how to change my m4l patches meanwhile without opening them in live?
Turning Audio off in m4l still crashes too.
Filed a report already but need to be able to use these m4l devices by tomorrow....
