A simple question : Next and Previous buttons for movies ?


Apr 17 2012 | 11:40 am

Hello there,

Here’s a simple question :
Got a bunch of 10 samples of movies (movie1.mov, movie2.mov, movie3.mov, and so on…).

How can i create a patch that say : With a toggle (or an osc event), play a first random movie (looped), and if the user clicks on a Next button, he’s got the next movie playing. If he clicks on a previous button, he’s got the previous movie ?

Waoow !
Great Thanks Chris.
You save my life !

Just find weird that Max does not include a previous" and "next" objects.

Thanks again

It does have the [inc] object though, which could be useful for this I’d imagine!

Ooh, I didn’t know about about that incdec object, great for UI design.

And I’m guessing the reason why there are no next and previous buttons is because it would be hard to design one to fit everyone’s needs, and I guess it’s actually easier for people to make their own for the specific needs, (or ask people on the forums ;).

Oops. I meant to say [incdec]! Not [inc]. At least you got it!
