Video software developed using Max for Live. APC compatible.

    Hi all -
    I've been working on some video software and the result is Grid Video.
    This is software that allows the user to assign a video to each grid-square in Ableton Live, and the video is triggered automatically as the audio is fired.
    The application is designed with DJs in mind for easy visuals which stay tempo synced, and have nice effects to play with.
    Also, rather than being MIDI triggered the videos are triggered by events in Ableton, so no worrying about hardware controller handshakes.
    The files are attached, along with release notes.
    I'd love some feedback, as I think this is a really promising device for DJs and bands using Ableton.

      Pity, looks great, but I'm not getting any video out.

      strange; i'm going to post some tutorial vids later tonight for setup, so maybe that will help - if not we'll go from there.
      Thanks for giving it a try though!

      @OhDaeSu: First of all, thank you for making this patch! It looks really awesome and this is exactly what I have been looking for. I tried to get it to work, but for some reason I can't.. I've been following your instructions in the video as well as in the release notes. I get the max patch in ableton, select the video folder, have named the video's correctly etc. etc. but when I press play and the attached video should play (for example for column 1 row 1 audio clip starting to play) it doesn't. The video window stays black. What dit notice me though when I look at the max window when going into the patch I get the following errors:
      If you could help me out getting this fixed, since I don't know nothing (YET) about max msp and programming I would be really really thankful and appreciate it! Hope to hear from you soon ;)
      Cheers, Stijn
      Ps: I also tried to get it to work with the webcam. When I press the box next to camera I can see the webcam on my macbook pro light up so it works but when I pull up the slider there isn't any video again.
