unless i’m missing something you won’t need firewire capability for what you’re doing. just use the standard movie object and output from the computer to video projector as normal.

Build a standalone with the Jitter demo that plays movies the way you
want to, don’t forget some sync/control/… inputs via OSC/Midi/…

Yes but that would mean i’d have to use the window of the movie object as a
second screen, wouldn’t it ?

too bad, i do not have a video projector at home to test this…

i have used the movie-object for a fullscreen-presentation on an old
lombard-powerbook, iirc. (under system 9.2.2 that was)
turned off menubar.
behind the scenes was a heavy patch working (applescript controling
btv, recording webcam-frames, which were shown later on the screen,
then disposed and trashed, some audio-processing, all sensor-controled.)
worked flawlessly for a whole day without crashing.
was for my installation arbeit / schoenheit (labor) http://www.hans-w-

i could dig that out, if helpful.

ok, will try on the weekend, that patch is a bloody mess…
at a first look i saw, i was using the movie++ object (http:// for its enhanced cpabilities.
nowadays i think i would go the jitter road too.
