I’m totally new to VVVV although I do have some familiarity with MaxMSP/Jitter.
What i’m trying to do is have a patch which reads a subtitles file, and when certain keywords come up in the text it will select a random video from a specific folder and send it to an output. The video is 4k but I have a pretty good graphics card (GeForce GTX 1080).
So basically a stream of data, something that checks to see if any of the words in that line match any of the keywords, if so then make random selection from matching folder, if not then continue to next video in current folder or something like that.
Hope that makes sense. I see there are some tutorials on video playback and selecting a random video index so that shouldn’t be too hard, but it would good if anyone has any ideas on how to read out the subtitles file and check for the matching words>send the trigger to select the video.
Any help very much appreciated,
