Re: Return value from AppleScript

I hadn't realized until now that on macOS you can use any OSA scripting language via the 'Do' command. Which should mean that since macOS 10.10 you can actually use JXA (JavaScript for Automation) via the 'Do' command, which has an ObjC bridge object, which should give macOS LC scripters another way...

Re: ID3 tags : a New LC Lib ?

OK so If anyone is interested, I've decided to make a new library for doing stuff with mp3s because Mark's Smiths library is oriented to just ID3 tags and I think I want something more than that. Also I think I have different design goals than he did. Besides being able to read / write / update (may...

Re: ID3 tags : a New LC Lib ?

BTW, Mark Smith's Library is id3v2.4 compatible (in fact I've had more trouble dealing with PIC frames in id3v2.3 tagged files), I'm not sure why you would say it wasn't?

Re: AppleScript insight

I should probably add that AppleScriptObjC was a rather Compile-It -ish move on Apple's part.

Being a bit stupid, I did NOT note down the names of all the add-ons before I removed them:

BUT they were all aimed at downloading youtube content.
I recommend you take a look at the free JDownloader download manager for downloading youtube content ;-)

Re: AppleScript insight

I'm not reading all of this! I just came in to say that I've used the hell out of AppleScript and Hypertalk, often combining to two (HC as rapid-dev GUI front end kit for AppleScripts) to get (quite literally, physical weight-wise...) TONS of work done in the Printing Industry (my day job) in conjun...

Re: ID3 tags : a New LC Lib ?

For writing the tag back out to the mp3 it will probably be best use a temp file, write the new tag and then write the mp3 audio from the original file to the new file. I'm pretty sure that's the way iTunes does it. This is because only way to update the existing file is if the new tag data total si...

Re: ID3 tags : a New LC Lib ?

I found on my hard drives a slightly newer versions I'd made of Mark Smith's id3 Library and Demo stack, both tagged as v1.0.4b. I've just now uploaded them to my git hub repo. I also uploaded my original attempt to create an mp3 parsing stack that I had started working on prior to finding Mark Smit...

Re: ID3 tags : a New LC Lib ?

Hmmm, it seems there aren't as many libraries available as I'd thought, the command line tools and libraries that are around are really older and don't seem to handle images or ID3v.2.4. Even Apple's AVFoundation / AVAsset stuff it seems are read only for mp3's (due to copyright or licensing issues?...

Re: ID3 tags : a New LC Lib ?

Hi, Paul McClernan here... That is correct, there is still problems writing picture frames (and reading certain pictures too, although I included a little hack to work around that in my version). Also correct that I haven't done anymore with updating Mark Smith's Library since since 2015. I think th...

Re: Never Mind! Fixed! Start Player 1 Freezes LC

Hey @NullSet, if you're still interested in doing Music stuff with LC on Mac then have a look at my stuff on GitHub. So far I've made 4 MIDI Music play related LiveCode Builder extensions for Apple (macOS, but should work on iOS too though I have not tested that) https://github.com/PaulMcClernan/LCB...

I have created a C# DLL. Is that not supported? How can I bind a C# dll file?
I'm not sure if C# is supported.
I know for sure that regular C, C++, Objective C, and Java are supported.

I think the FFI binding is based on this here (but I could be wrong):
