UDPreceive gives me (OSC packet size (1) not a multiple of 4 bytes) error

Nov 06 2012 | 9:04 pm

I’m trying to send a UDP command from Watchout via network to my UDPreceive object and I keep getting this error: udpreceive: OSC packet size (1) not a multiple of 4 bytes: dropping
I’m just trying to send it a single number. Thoughts?

it seems you’re not sending OSC-formatted messages, which is the format expected by [udpreceive]. To receive in raw format, I suggest you to use [sadam.udpReceiver] from my library. See this post for more details:

For the same purpose (Watchout udp communication), I used [mxj net.udp.recv] that solved the problem.
