sfplay~ from CD on Windows and Issues of Compilation for Windows

    May 10 2010 | 3:48 pm
    Dear List,
    I have just finished a coding a project on Mac OS. Ideally we want to compile a version for use on Windows also though not sure what the implications are when using the jit.qt objects. Throughout the application the jit.qt.movie object has been used to to play back audio and video so MSP does not need to be running. Will this run fine on a windows machine, I ask because I do not have access to a windows machine being a musician primarily and a programmer secondly.
    I also have a question from a colleague who wants to know if the sfplay~ object works when playing files from a CD on a Windows machine. I cannot test this for reasons stated above but it is his understanding that it isn't possible to load a file from a CD into sfplay~. He wants to do this for copyright reasons I believe.
    If anyone could point to some documents or give me an answer that would be really helpful. Thanks!

      #1 if you want to make a standalone for Windows, you need to make it on Windows, you can't make a standalone if you're not on the platform.
      #2 MacOS has a special way of giving you the impression that CD tracks are sound files, but windows does not. You'll have to import the track as sound files before. I bet there are tool for that.

      Thanks. To make the patch work on a Windows machine, will I need to change the jit.qt objects for something else i.e. jit.dx?
