Stopping movie audio playback upon opening patch

    Mar 05 2012 | 5:09 pm
    Hello all,
    I'm trying to make a patch for a friend's performance of a piece for gyil and audio playback.
    He made a video with a click track and as long as the video and audio file start at the same time everything is hunky dory.
    Problem is whenever I open the patch the click audio from the movie starts playing (even though my patching works after the loadbang) If you open it, you'll be able to see what I mean. Once the patch is open, tap the space bar twice and everything stops, then after you tap it again everything plays back exactly as it should.
    How can I keep the click audio from playing on start up.
    Here's a link to a zip containing the patch, movie, and audio file:
    Thanks, Aaron

      I meant "it starts the associated sound of the moviealso". Best, Helmuth

      Well, maybe I spoke too soon. I've added "@autostart 0" to the That fixes the issue with spigot~ starting up when the patch is loaded, but now the first time I start the movie nothing comes out of it. I have to stop it, then start it again for it to work.
      Is that something I'll just have to live with?
      Thanks again, Aaron

      Your video start's with about 2 seconds black(volontary?). With another video no problem to start. Look like it has to do with your video(not shure). I start your video at 2190 ms, start's fine. I added some little things in your patch, may help (let me know):

      Sorry, I should've been more specific.
      The video starts fine (there should be some dead time at the start), it's the spigot~ that doesn't output any sound until the second time I start the patch.

      With the little changes I added to your patch (see my previous post)works fine here. Is your folder in the max filepreferences?
