[PD] Gem : many files with [pix_film], sync, etc.

Hi, Alex,

my v33 videoplayer (I think the version you use) creates a pix_film instance 
for every movie it loads.

Video load times therefore should not be noticeable.

Subject: [PD] Gem : many files with [pix_film], sync, etc.

Hi all,

I am wondering if my patch will crash if I load many films with a
single instance of [pix_film].

If so, it's possible to do dynamic patching to create many instances
of [pix_film], but this is not a very elegant solution. The delay to
get a film open is also to be considered.

Using Hans' PD-0.39-2test3 extended on Mac X.4 with a G5 1.33Ghz and a
G4 700Mhz. Maybe should I use an old version of PD with Tcl/Tk by
iteself to make the GUI faster ?

I also absolutely want both computers to play video files in sync. I
think the only way to achieve this is to broacast a counter through
UDP [netsend].

Any help is greatly appreciated !
