Play a QuickTime movie

This shows a simple way to play a QuickTime movie using Jitter. When the object receives a read message, it opens a dialog box allowing you to select a movie file. As soon as you select a movie and click OK, begins to retrieve frames of video from that file and place them in memory, at the frames-per-second rate specified in the movie file itself.

Play a QuickTime movie with Jitter

The object can open (read) a .mov file (or really any media file that QuickTime is capable of dealing with) and start playing it, loading its visual content into its internal Jitter matrix. But that matrix is only made visible when you send it a bang, which causes it to send out a jit_matrix message to jit.window telling it where in memory to look to get the data to be displayed.
