max / flash and the www.

    May 07 2006 | 10:52 pm
    Hi I have a new project to create, it involves an online flash website and an external computer hosting a max patch and webcam. anyone that logs in via the www can view the location via a streaming webcam and also at a press of a button send a signal to the computer resulting in max recieving this and translating it into a sonic expression within the environment. that is it in theory anyhow, The problem is I have found so much conflicting information as to what to use for this kind of a project that I am now confused! Does anyone know of any similar projects that i can look at? has anyone experimented with a similar internet based project /connection? What do you think is going to be the biggest obstacle? any advice will be so helpful to me thanks. Jaygo
