  1. If you catch a desire to burn an ISO to a usbDrive you can also use dd to image your confirmed USB storage device, as you confirmed in gparted, fdisk or like paritions and disks. dd if=isoToBurn.iso of=/dev/[sd?] status=progress
  2. ffmpeg -fflags +genpts -i 049_Hacks4Pancakes.avi -i metadata -map_metadata 0 -codec copy 049_Hacks4Pancakes_01.mp4 The revised sample resolves the 'Timestamps are unset in a packet for stream 0. This is deprecated and will stop working in the future. Fix your code to set the timestamps properly' you are likely to see when adding the Subtitle files. Let us talk about extensions. Video is most compliant with chapters if you output to .mp4 To audio, mp3 will show chapters in some but not all players. .m4a / mp4 output is consistent with chapter recognition and playback to timings for chapter. My testing output to avi, was outright no chapter functionality in tests. Thank this old ticket

    Hola and may your current be well. I moved forums around to clean up presentation. A little better wording for sub-forums too. I keep forgetting I need to edit the css to remove the silly page limitation for printing content out. I'm a fan of PDF dump compliant content. Granted there is still a lite theme that gets invoked by your browser user agent, I believe. Site does still work on Lynx 🙂

    Missing out on an old staple to gripe about things like Virtualization being off default each bios firmware update version increase flash. Thank you for this stroll, I know there is plenty of old babble here through the years. I keep on that though just less a so here
  5. Since F8 keynote has come and gone, there are release windows for the Rift S and Oculus Quest Headsets for May 21st 2019. As reviews of the Rift S trickle out there are some pros and cons with the new headset, with the main takeaway being, not really worth it to bump from a CV1 headset to Rift S, but there is some improvement in the image quality, while also having a lower refresh rate of 80 Hz on the Rift S, versus 90 on the CV1 headset. The Rift S has sensors built into the headset, but as I have a 3 sensor setup with my CV1, I also find another case where the jump is not really useful in my case. Audio is also lower quality due to the change in speakers. No more over the ear pieces like on your Rift CV1. No IPD adjustment on Rift S either. It goes with a default eye width for all. Meanwhile, as I never got the Oculus Go, The Oculus Quest is looking quite nice for a stand-alone headset with it's pretty appealing. This being said as I have taken a PC desktop and Rift CV1 on a LAN Trip for the day. It made for a great demo but taking all that equipment was not fun. I am tempted to dabble in the stand alone headset experience too. There will also be a new Steam / Valve Index Headset releasing this year. Granted that will be much more costly around $1000, as the Rift S will go for $400 and the Oculus Quest with 128 GB Storage will go for $500, with the 64 GB Storage unit being $400. Please note, these are my collected observations from others. I only have the CV1 currently 🙂
  6. Total stub thread. Been working on adding chapter content to some files. https://ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg-formats.html#Metadata-1 ffmpeg -i INPUT -i FFMETADATAFILE -map_metadata 1 -codec copy OUTPUT https://medium.com/@dathanbennett/adding-chapters-to-an-mp4-file-using-ffmpeg-5e43df269687 Testing: MP3 will work but VLC will not inherently show you the chapters. If you encode to mp4, it will. Other Audio Players do show chapters for an MP3 just fine though. ffmpeg -i 049_Hacks4Pancakes.mp3 -i metadata -map_metadata 1 -codec copy 049_Hacks4Pancakes00.mp3 note that the metadata before -map_metadata is my filename with the [Chapters] content. The math is a little silly, but each minute is represented by 60000. I used a spreadsheet in my case to come up with numbers.
  7. I have been all over the place lately, mostly mentally. There was a new DLC pack with about 18 levels that came out within a month for $5. I have played 17 of them and just have 2 left to finish. I loved the new maps as well! It totally caught me off guard that this game got extra content and I purchased the extra content as soon as it became an option. I kind of would like to have this game as digital copy too, since I play it pretty often and it would save me from inserting a game card. On the same lines though, having a cart makes it easy to let people borrow and enjoy the game too :)
  8. Bumping this as it seems the 2nd Gen headsets will either release @ F8 Keynote or at least a release date will be given. With head-mounted tracking instead of 3rd party sensors and the upgraded LCDs in the Rift S, I am quite interested in getting my hands on this headset. The Oculus Quest looks cool too, since it will have 6-DoF versus the 3-DoF (pitch and movement sensory improvements for hand tracking, instead of just head tilting. and also upgraded screens versus the Oculus Go. I may have some feedback here in a few weeks since I already know a good home for my CV1.
  9. Here is a thread to share any notable changes or concerns with Windows 10 or recent server builds. I start the thread with 10.0.17763.437 version of Windows 10. Two things jump out upon installing patches: “This app is no longer available.” message comes up about CPUID CPU-Z. I had version 1.80.0 installed. Latest is version 1.88.0 and updating should have resolved that. Still, the app removal feature of Windows 10 seems to be quite old based off the 2015 date for the build listed in the WindowsClub link from Version 1511. In my Taskbar applications, one of my pinned files said it was missing. Browsing to the path opened the file fine. To resolve, I removed the existing pinned filename, then I just dragged the icon for the file down to the taskbar shortcut and had a 'Pin to AppName' option that applied when I let go of the mouse button. For point of reference I wanted to confirm what recent updates installed on my PC. We could do it via Add/Remove programs and view them by date but we out here trying to notate this, so let's run some PowerShell. Get-Hotfix Running this will give similar formatted results. Source Description HotFixID InstalledBy InstalledOn ------ ----------- -------- ----------- ----------- COMPYX86 Update KB4483452 NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM 4/13/2019 12:00:00 AM COMPYX86 Update KB4462930 NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM 4/13/2019 12:00:00 AM COMPYX86 Security Update KB4493478 NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM 4/13/2019 12:00:00 AM COMPYX86 Security Update KB4493510 NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM 4/13/2019 12:00:00 AM COMPYX86 Security Update KB4493509 NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM 4/13/2019 12:00:00 AM Side note to add links for that Get-Hotfix syntax at SS64 and Microsoft Module Documentation. There are some nice flags on there, especially for managing multiple machines. Oh hey. My laptop installed the same 5x updates and also prompted me with a 'Welcome to the October Update' banner in Edge. Keep in mind I deliberately change my home machines to Semi-Annual Channel that means 'ready for widespread use in organizations' instead of the default Advanced Updates setting for Semi-Annual Channel (Targeted) that means updates are ready for 'most people', as that namely tends to mean Public Test Channel. Perhaps one of those 5 updates invoked the compatibility check feature to run again but I will stop here for now, since that is a good jump off point.
  10. Just in case you stagger to this archive, I updated this to work with PHP 7.x as well. https://funtimebliss.com/plus/ Also, actual HouseOfPlus.com is under our control thanks to @Immortal Bob

    Updating to PHP 7.x required me to retool the mysql commands to use mysqli. Also, I had some sloppy query order, where the database connector needed to be before the query call. All fixed up back in it's lo-fi glory. https://funtimebliss.com/archive/index.php
  12. I have some threads about removing metadata exif info from images with exiftool by Phil Harvey but if you try this on some .mp4 videos, you may find the details are still present. In this case, if you have a DJI drone, I highly suggest checking the exifdata. GPS and all sorts of other data is present and you may very well want to remove that from any content you upload. Remove exiftool metadata: ffmpeg -i in.mov -map_metadata -1 -c:v copy -c:a copy out.mov Once this finished, run Exiftool again to confirm that sea of data, is now much smaller than it was previously. For extra fun and confirmation, look for DJI_ images and have fun confirming GPS coordinates from those photos or videos to GPS coordinates on Google Maps.
  13. Additional resources, as I am trying to directly run grub-update on a Live USB install and seeing if that bodes well. https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=198547 https://truthseekers.io/everything-you-need-to-know-to-dual-boot-uefi-gpt-bios-mbr-partitions-swap-space-and-more/
  14. Howdy. I wanted to share some issues I am having installing Parrot OS. Long story short, the partition tables are being setup wrong to allow Grub to install. If you search for grub-efi-amd64 error you may see people suggest rebooting and selecting the non-UEFI usb boot to install. This turns out to fail too. What we want, is a drive with: 1st partition: bios_grub 2nd partition: boot, esp (EFI is esp based drive) Your OS partition and other partition choices are yours. Be it one for OS and another for Swap, or carve out a dedicated /home partition. A buddy told me a dedicated home partition makes life easier if you have a multi-boot linux environment config where you want home directory data to be shared between each Operating System running a Linux-based OS. This guide on is very nice and detailed partition layout and configuration for GRUB. It also show us how using gdisk or fdisk -l will show the defined parition configuration. gdisk -l /dev/yourDrive to cross reference the raw partition values to what you may see in Gparted. Partition results should look similar to below: Number Start (sector) End (sector) Size Code Name 1 2048 292863 142.0 MiB EF02 2 292864 2390015 1024.0 MiB EF00 3 2390016 275019775 130.0 GiB 8300 4 275019776 288692223 6.5 GiB 8200
  15. Scope of this forum changed to more of a break / fix troubleshooting focus. I will keep this thread stickied for that context and any other notes, since this was back from 2014 :D
