Setting the volume to zero in the object does stop audio, but only after a short time. This is due to the low priority processing of the qmetro object, I believe.

So what I did to resolve this, so that audio stopped at the approximately-exact same time as the video, is to extract the audio via the @soc method of, then with spigot~ drove the audio with the play/stop button of the vizzie playr, toggling a float num box across a few *~ into dac~

This stops the audio at the same time:


…all a bit painful, and now I’m hacking the vizzie playr into my own player with separate audio outs.

This is OK, but I’m unhappy to break away from the objects that will continue to be updated, on what will be a pretty frequent basis. I’ll be needing to add my hacks back into the branch if I want to continue using the latest vizzie version…

Any simpler methods?
