midi bridge support for osx and vista 64bit

Deprecated, please Chris Wilson’s WebMIDIAPI Shim

Mac OSX and Vista 64bit are now supported, check the example!

For OSX
Please download mmj first and place mmj.jar and libmmj.jnilib in your /Library/Java/Extensions directory.

Because the applet is loading the mmj library from your local system, the applet has to be signed and you have to trust it before it can run.

For Vista 64bit
Please go to Control Panel -> View 32-bit Control Panel Items -> Java -> Advanced -> Java Plug-in and deselect ‘Enable the next-generation Java Plug-in’.

In general
If the midi bridge loses its connection to your midi device, or the bridge isn’t responding at all anymore, please close your browser(s) completely. That means: close all running browser windows of all browsers that have been running the applet. This is to ensure that you kill the Java Plug-in process completely.

All midi bridge examples are updated and your platform should be detected automatically, so go ahead and test the bridge on your machine with the links in this post or in this post.

Please let me know if it doesn’t work on your system.
