Email Captured Images to Users


    Mar 22 2006 | 3:38 am
    I made an art project using MAX/MSP/Jitter; Basicly a video camera takes live video - blah blah compile blah - the end matrix is saved as a file on the computer's main drive. I am setting up the project as an installation and I would like people who come by to be able to email the pictures they make to themselves so they can take a part of it with them.
    Question: How do I take the image file created and email it to a user defined address?
    I am fairly new to MAX/MSP/Jitter, so I might need explanations in terms with small words...

      mxj has a mail client (mxj is java embedded in Max/MSP).
      mxj net.mail.send should do it.
      explore your c74 folder/java/help/

      Cool, thanks. I didn't know those files where there.
      This leads me to my next question, what about authentication for and SMTP server? I searched Google and only found another guy with the same question, but no answers. I also looked through the mxj tutorials, but it's possible that I missed something. A point in the right direction would be fine.

      I don't know what platform you're on, but I've used AppleScript to do this on Mac.

      ArtGoesHere,
      here is the patch i mentioned. it is a mangled version of Peter Nyboer's OTUDP. you will have to google this as well as open sound control to get the proper objects and help files. i think that it will work, it may need some tuning. i know that there are probably better ways of working this, but here is a start.
