If you want to interact with an application that is running via http-protocol on a server (such as the mention web services) you usually need to go a detour: First you have to setup a web-server of your own. Your max patch can communicate with this server (via udp/tcp – there are several objects around for that and man threads here in the forum) and triggering a script on this server that can interact with other web applications.
Thanx for answering that thread Jan !!!!
now i remember it was the "internet-jitter" thread! Can you tell some more details about what you are working on? That would help me to give more helpful advise (if I can).
Thanx again for your help Jan !!!
to point efficiently into a direction some more technical details would help (or just see if understand you right ;) ) :
It’s clear until this point:
You want an audience to load a website into their browser. The appearance of the site shall change in relation to something that happens inside your Max patch. And I assume that the modified website shall be accessible from anywhere in the web (not only a certain computer).
From here on I have some questions:
1. Would you like the audience to go to a existing website of someone else – lets say http://www.youtube.com – and while they watch the site things are changing?
– If so: does the site need to appear under the original URL in the Browser (i.e. http://www.youtube.com) ->to be frank this would be very close to cracking and I’d rather not go there to deep……
OR can the content of the site appear under another URL (one that belongs to you)?
– If it’s not an existing site, but one that you built on your own:
* can you tell a bit more what you are using/showing on the site:
You spoke about video and audio: what format/which technology to play them (flash/quicktime-player/ HTML5-player etc.).
– What do you want to change exactly
* do you want i.e. replace a video/audio at a certain place or do you need to make changes inside the video/audio itself (such as color filters, distortions etc).
* do you want to change the HTML-Part of a website (such things as the location of certain elements on the site, colors and sizes, fonts etc)?
And how responsive the whole thing shall be – The web basically offers theses options:
* A site is changing after it is loaded in a browser (This is i.e. the case with chats)
* A site only changes on reloads (Such as a news-site where every minute a different headline would be shown if you reload the page).
All these possibility would need need a slightly different constructions, that’s why I ask.
