Hi there I’m currently looking in to ways to schronize 4 or 5 videos accross 4 – 5 displays which I must be able to control as they play. I’m unfamiliar with max / msp and wondered if it might be the best solution, could anybody advise whether or not it would be suitable.
I did that once,
One computer was the remote control and there was 24 macminis controled with OpenSoundControl.
I had some slowdowns on the remote at a point because I was sending to much packets thru OSC.
But collecting all the parameters(starting point, speed, vol) in one packet solved that problem.
im doing this as well with OSC, and doing a little bit of latency
testing/offsetting. it works quite well, and seems to dead on if I
play 3 movies each with the same audio track, I cant hear any odd
phasing/echo or weird artifacts from being out of sync.
