[AG-TECH] Mac OS NodeServices (video/audio)

Hello all,

Given the recent ability of VRVS based audio and video tools to work 
under Mac OS we have been playing with a Mac AudioService to try and get 
it to work. The VenueClient hangs when trying to add a AudioService Node 
Service to a node through the node management interface.

Oddly enough, we have been playing around with VP as well, and see 
exactly the same behaviour. The VenueClient hangs when trying to add a 
VPVideoConsumer service. This leads me to believe that this is a generic 
"Add node service to a node problem" on Mac OS, NOT an AudioService problem.

So my question is, has anyone been able to add ANY kind of a NodeService 
to a node under MacOS? Markus, have you had any luck with getting a VP 
node service running? Any insights into this problem? Tom, Ivan, any 

Excerpt from the node service log below... Note that it seems to hang 
when it try to start the service and never comes back. At this point one 
has to kill the VenueClient.
