Hi. I've been working on a patch runing on a windows machine and I've  
had lots of dificulties with codecs.
My experience is that if you load several movies onto one pix_film  
object pd crashes sooner or later, be it quicktime or avi.
The only codec I've been able to use is the indeo (IR32) that  
homer.avi uses
With all the rest pix_film writes something like "new movie might  
crash ... survived" (until it does crash).

Has this been discussed before? Do you know if there's another codec  
that works?
