fluidMidiParser on Windows SOLUTION

If anyone has had difficulty using the Todd Rundgren's fluidMidiParser on Windows, I have a solution for you.

The program, developed on a Mac, assumes Mac byte order when reading the MIDI file.
It uses the binaryIOXtra, which has a function for specifying byte order.

Open the .dir file of the fluidMidiParser.
Open the script called 'fluidplayer'
Line 35 opens the midi file: "bio.openfile(1, mf)"
after this, insert a line that reads "bio.useMacByteOrder ( )" w/o quotes

Rewind the movie if it's running.

It will now work in Windows.

Post something here if this was helpful to you.

BTW, Todd Rundgren was very helpful when I asked him about this. He answered my email almost immediately. Thanks, Todd.
