How to make jit.qt.movie NOT automatically play back after reading


    Apr 26 2013 | 4:49 am
    Right after I read a file into a jit.qt.movie object the file starts to play back automatically. I listen for the "read" message in the "dumpout" outlet and I successfully filter out the correct notification to know when the file finishes reading yet when I try to send a "stop" message to this object, playback doesn't stop. Manually clicking on the stop message does work though so I'm think my timing is off and I don't know how to fix it.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers!

      Try "@autostart 0" ;-)

      Lovely.
      I also realized that adding a "delay 100" before the bang in my posted patch solves the problem too. The @autostart attribute is much cleaner though.
      Thanks!
