I wrote a patch a bit ago that would rip youtube videos directly into my Max patches, and I've used it on countless projects ever since from real-time performance patches to artgames to artware. It's a very useful patch as any Jitter folk might imagine, and so I figured I'd share it with the wonderful Max community.
I've made many variations on this patch for different projects, but I did my best to clean this up and comment it a bit before posting so that it be clear for anyone interested in adding it to their video projects/patches. I've also posted a built application called Sample Chest (using this patch in a straight forward way, serves as a good example/demo).
let me know what yawl think!
