OggPro externals crashing Max/MSP


    Feb 22 2006 | 3:32 pm
    Hi,
    I'm wondering if anyone else has used the OggPro externals package for streaming and receiving Ogg Vorbis encoded audio? I have a patch that currently uses both the streaming and receiving objects together, and when the audio from the receiver feeds back into the streamer in any way (I have tried inserting delays, signals, etc. into the feedback mix), Max/MSP crashes completely. The feedback is part of the piece, and thus is critical to the patch functioning as desired. Has anyone dealt with similar issues with other signal sending/receiving objects and found a reasonable workaround? Many thanks.
    Best,

      Hi Peter,
      I still don't have a bugfix for you. I can happily run several oggcast~ and oggamp~ objects in parallel and receive streams that were made with objects within the same patch. Also 'rebroadcasting' streams that were received with oggamp~ is no problem. Only as soon as I create a 'feedback loop' it crashes. Since oggamp~ / oggcast~ and the Icecast2 server all use plenty of buffers inbetween this should not happen (and it does not happen on Windows, Mac only). So for now I can just recommend to switch to Max on Windows...
