Sound from MOVIE object


    Jan 18 2006 | 6:03 pm
    Hi,
    I'm new to that board and only use the demo as for now. Already I built a little plug hosted by pluggo, to sync a video with programs that don't have that facility (I.E. Ableton Live).
    I was wondering, as I can't find it, if there is a way to get the sound from the movie or imovie objects.
    For now the sound just plays on the system's sound output and I can't find how to steal it.
    Do I have to rethink the plug and use Jitter instead ? (I know there is a Jitter object to get the sound from a quicktime movie...) Or is there a way just in MAX/MSP ?
    Sorry if the question has been asked before, I couldn't find it.
    Kind regards,
    amo

      [spigot~], which is part of Jitter, is suppose to do that.
      But it's broken under Quicktime 7.
      > Or is there a way just in MAX/MSP ?
      I don't think so.
      Or maybe if you route the standard audio output with SoundFlower or
      Jack to Ableton Live, but it may be tricky and there may be some
      latency...

      Thanks for the answer !
      I knew about the jitter object... One question: does it get the sound from a movie played by movie or imovie ? Or do I have to use a jitter object to play the movie too ?
      I forgot to tell that I'm on PC. Bad news for the broken Quicktime 7, real bad news... Anyway,
      Best,

      It needs Jitter.

      Cycling people are for sure working on it. Just be patient :-)

      Thanks again !
      I'm a very patient chap... will be rebuilding the plug using Jitter I think... By the time I get it right, and update will certainly be up ;-)

      One more sad thing I have found about: spigot only works at 44,1 Khz, which doesn't suite my needs... I'll just forget about the sound I guess.
      Thanks again for the help,
