      Your patch seems to be missing something: bpatcher: bpatcher: error loading patcher playr-patch.maxpat bpatcher: bpatcher: error loading patcher moviefoldr-patch.maxpat
      Try this

      thanks I am learning from your patch, very patch. I am wondering if the patch can be use with a vizzie module ( movie file drop)

      OH, I see now -- you're using Vizzie. Yes, in my patch, you can delete the and connect the PREPEND READ object to the right inlet of PLAYR ( does the same thing as PLAYR).
      The trick for making your patch work is that you have to send a floating point number (one with a decimal) between 0. and 1.0 . Here's a simple fix to make your code work. I think it will work best if you change the random 100 and / 100. to the number of files or a little larger.
