Max5 on PC using = black video

Aug 21 2011 | 2:35 am

Hi all,

This is the patch I’m using:

-- Pasted Max Patch, click to expand. --

It works wonderfully on a Mac. I tried to run this on a PC today and everything works except the video window. It just stays black. I think the videos are loading and trying to play, but the output window is black. I just installed a up-to-date version of Apple Quicktime as well.

Any ideas on a fix running this on a PC?

How do you know the videos are playing, can you hear sound or does jit.fpsgui output anything? Have you tried a jit.pwindow to see if the video is rendered there? I’d test with the help on PC to see if it might be a quicktime or codev issue first, if that works then go back to your patch and strip a version of it down to just the player and the jit.glrender to see if that works.
