jit.movie objects can't read more than 625 videos (except with PhotoJPG)

    Hello, when trying to read more than 625 videos (cf patch below), Max returns an error "jit.movie * error loading file xxx.mp4". After experimenting for several weeks, I am noticing that the limitation occurs for all codecs except PhotoJPG. I have tried with different versions of Max, different video engines, different videos, resolutions, codecs, frame rates, lengths, and I always get the same results. Here is the patch I am using to test this. Main patch:
    poly~ patch called "Poly_jit.movieEmpty"
    Anybody could help me understand why this is happening? Is this a limitation of Max? But why would this work with PhotoJPG and not H264 nor ProRes? I have tried with two instances of Max and each one can load 625 videos for a total of 1250, so this does not seem to be a limitation of my GPU. Unfortunately with the confinement, I am unable to test this on another computer, so I would really appreciate help! thanks Florent
