Streaming internet radio in Max/MSP…

Apr 16 2013 | 11:44 am

Hi all,

I have found a couple of topics from way back about this, but no solutions. Oggpro seems to be out of action, shoutamp~ has disappeared from the web.. PD appears to have a couple of objects but they require compiling; I am on a windows 7 machine and this is not something I want to delve into unless absolutely necessary.

Any solutions?

I’m in the same position as yeter (except on mac too).

Thanks for the reply,

If you could post shoutcast~ that would be appreciated.

But, are these confirmed to be working in Max 6? I checked out oggamp~ but it didn’t seem to work on Mac 6.08 or 6.12, see screen… unless I’m doing something silly that is.

hey mark, oggamp~, shoutcast~ and oggcast~ works fine for me running max 6.1.2 on osx 10.7.5.
for a current audio streaming project i used olaf´s object on a win 7 computer.

so, maybe you have an outdated version, or multiple versions of the objects in your searchpath?
the best would be to contact olaf directly … he is a kind guy and will help you.

hi johannes, do you have the Pro versions of oggamp~ and oggcast~ for OSX? I have been trying to get in touch with Olaf about getting them, but have not had any success…

i managed to get Robin Gareus’ externals. They are available here, though they are unmaintained.

The binaries are still online at:

It’s been more than 3 years (OSX 10.5) since I last looked at it, it
should still work, but I don’t know. Please let me know if you encounter
any problems, so that I can warn others.

I don’t maintain this external anymore. I neither have a MAX/MSP
license, nor do I own any Apple devices. On the upside, complete
source-code is available from;a=snapshot;sf=tgz

I just tried oggrx~ from the v0.6 version of the links posted by umma08, in Max 6.1.8 – played an MP3 file from a web URL.

does anybody have any updates to this? I have seemed to run into problems with my oggrx~ objects running as a Max for Live patch on Ableton 9.6. Crashes every time – even though the object is stable in Max.
