Haha awesome! Thmbsup

The FARR solution is not as elegant as an javascript entry in Chrome, but it's the next best thing.

I am not sure what to look for when you say 3rd party tool.  When I right click  "open all bookmarks" it rapidly opens all of my bookmarks.

UPDATE: mouser, do you think it might FARR causing the slowness?   I just tested it with a custom BAT file and it loads perfectly in Chrome. Takes a split second to open all the links. Try it for yourself!

[copy or print]
start chrome.exe "google.com"
start chrome.exe "yahoo.com"
start chrome.exe "dogpile.com"
start chrome.exe "startrek"
start chrome.exe "donationcoder.com"

Just as an example, there's a built in alias in FARR called "define", which basically defines a number of web searches for a word you type.

Type "define urgent" and you'll see this: (see attachment in previous post)
Now if you hit Enter it will open the FIRST result -- or you can trigger the individual results you want.

Or -- and this is what you asked for - you can hit Ctrl+Alt+Enter to open ALL results at once (which in your browser should open each in it's own tab).


mouser,

This works, but it is painfully slow!!!.  For some reason, it takes roughly 5 seconds (measured it with stopwatch) for each entry to appear (browser window popup). Some of the entries will have about 20 metasearches which makes it really painful to search. I couldn't find a setting that said "wait 5 seconds before launching each page".  This is in the latest version of Chrome (Version 31.0.1650.63 m).

Why doesn't it just launch them all at once, rapidly? I am forced to force-kill FARR to get it to stop opening 25 aliases at 5 seconds a pop cheesy

UPDATE: mouser, there is a problem with that method.

I will be having several "meta aliases".

For example, I'll have one for eBooks, music, movies, anime,  etc.. About 7 of them. Your method won't work for more than 1 alias right? Or will it?
7  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Re: URGENT REQUEST: browser meta searching with custom entries. on: December 25, 2013, 08:04:54 PM
You could do this very easily using Find and Run Robot.  Once you created an "alias" to do this, you could share it with others easily as well.



What the deuce?!  I have used Robot before and didn't realize. STAND BY... I am trying as I type this!!

Found a autoit script that someone made, but tried to compile it, run it and had to force reboot my comp (lol) since it kept going without stopping. Maybe it can help

Hi guys,

This is culmination of 13 hours of google searching and I still have not figured out a way to do this in chrome.  I am turning to you guys!

Basically, I want to be able to type "am" (short for anime meta) and a search string in my Chrome address bar OR an a small app and have it launch the resulting search entries in new tabs/windows (prefer tabs).

For example: I type  am <search string>   or  am naruto  and that will search the following sites (I replaced the search query with %s)

FakeSite1   http://www.FakeSite1.com/search/search?searchitem="+s+"&searchradio=releases&submit.x=0&submit.y=0
FakeSite2    http://FakeSite2.me/browse.php?q=%s
FakeSite3  http://www.FakeSite3.org/..._0&filter=0&term="+s+"


It will popup 3 popups (or prefer tabs) with Bakaupdates / BakaBT / Nyaatorrents
here's some background threads where this was achievable in Opera. I cannot get any of these working in Chrome.  Sad   I am CERTAIN this is not that hard, but I am at a loss as to how to proceed next.

Some background threads.

Hi mouser,
I have Makeuseof in my feedly RSS list. Love them.  I thought he removed the password from the PDF files.  It is suprisingly easy to guess :-)
12  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / One-drag video conversion? on: August 25, 2013, 02:02:46 AM
Hi all,

I am looking to convert ALL of my AVI, 3gp, DAT mkv, etc.  videos to MPEG-4/H264 in an effort to save file space (will I be saving space??).  I just want to drag all of my videos, press convert. The resolution and everything remains the same. The only things that change are 1) format 2) container (MP4).   I do something similar with my music using xrecode II.   

I know about Handbrake, Freemaker converter and a few others, but are not really what I am looking for.

Is there a utility like this out, or am I out of luck?
13  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: RIOT tool that respects folder hierarchy? (for JPEG compression?) on: August 25, 2013, 01:58:39 AM
vlastimil,
Very weird thing here.
When I drag and drop a photo (essentially reducing the size) and then double click it in Windows 7, rotate it  and save it, the file size returns to around what it was previously.  Any ideas why?
14  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Compressing files into multiple .zip archives with each .zip being independent on: July 26, 2013, 05:16:27 AM
hey skwire,
Don't worry about deleting files. I found an app that does what I need it to do for my specific taks (MP3gtoolz).  Spinzip is still my tool of choice for all other projects. Saves me so much time :-)
15  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Compressing files into multiple .zip archives with each .zip being independent on: July 22, 2013, 01:44:21 PM
I have 3 great suggestions for spinzip

1)  I am using spinzip to recompress my karaoke cdg + mp3 collections and am running out of space on my HD.  Possible to add a "delete original item after processing" or something to that effect? It compresses the files in question and deletes it, then moves onto the next.  Obviously, this should be an optional checkmark, with another dialogue WARNING user about it

2) Include a "PAUSE" button

3) Instead of just "working..." in the bottom left, change it to "Working 5% ETA ________  Elapsed time _____)

It's just amazing that I can have this program made and then altered for a very specific need. Just amazing. Love this forum.  Times are tough right now, but when I get a job again and get back on my feet, donations are coming.
17  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Re: REQUEST: Add ZIP/RAR functionality to s_playlistmaker on: July 19, 2013, 10:50:03 PM
Wow thanks so much skwire!! You are so amazingly awesome!

The first time I used it, the program included mp3 files that were in the same directory as the ZIP files despite the option being checked to exclude. I cannot replicate it anymore after the first time it happened.
 
This is precisely what I wanted and will save me so much time and will be very useful for the karaoke community.  thanks again sooooo much!!!
18  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Re: REQUEST: Add ZIP/RAR functionality to s_playlistmaker on: July 19, 2013, 07:20:20 PM
Yes. It should be option in the dropdown box for ZIP files or RAR files. 

Just to clarify, it would NOT be BOTH mp3 and zip. The file would only contain .zip entries if that option is chosen. 

yay skywire! Thanks so much. This will be a great help for me.  Let me know if I can do anything to help you.
19  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Re: REQUEST: Add ZIP/RAR functionality to s_playlistmaker on: July 19, 2013, 06:04:40 PM
I made a m3u file from s_playlistmaker and replaced .mp3 with .zip

Example:
Bee Gees - You Should Be Dancing .zip
Belinda Carlisle - Heaven Is A Place On Earth.zip
20  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / REQUEST: Add ZIP/RAR functionality to s_playlistmaker on: July 19, 2013, 05:02:57 PM
Hey skwire,
I was the original requester of s_playlistmaker. I think you'll be happy to know I use this software on a WEEKLY basis and has remained the standard on all my computers.

I have run into a snag and I hope you can help me.  I am building a PC Karaoke setup using OGG+CDG (converted my MP3s>OGG) files.  I use Winamp +CDG plugin to play them.  Each file will be zipped (.ZIP) format to save 30-40% of space.

For example:
5 Help Me Make It.cdg
5 Help Me Make It.ogg

>>zipped>>
5 Help Me Make It.zip


My request for s_playlistmaker which I hope you can implement easily. Can you add ZIP and RAR support to the creation of playlists?  I want to be able to add files to my karaoke songs folder (all zip files), drag it into s_playlistmaker, and product a m3u or m3u8 (with zip files' names) and subsequently  drag this file into Winamp +CDG plugin.

There is a way I can do this already, but holy crap it's a royal PITA (involves WinRAR, spinzip and about hours worth of time just to create 1 playlist)


Please please please tell me you can/are willing to do this! cheesy
21  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: RIOT tool that respects folder hierarchy? (for JPEG compression?) on: July 19, 2013, 04:54:53 PM
 rofl just a heads up.
After YEARS of asking/begging/yelling-kicking-screaming profanities for this function in RIOT and Caesium ... after I found Photoresize, both programs now support what I want.

Can you believe that! ROFL
22  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: SOLVED: Image optimization tool on: May 11, 2013, 03:29:02 PM
Thanks skwire! Good to see you again :-)

I just saved 8GB of room using that awesome utility
23  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: RIOT tool that respects folder hierarchy? (for JPEG compression?) on: May 11, 2013, 02:34:58 PM
Okay I finished the tests

test 1 Photoresizer: 473 MB (496,117,161 bytes)
test 2 - RIOT folder:  470 MB (493,519,346 bytes)

Quality is pretty much the same. Minor difference in some pixels when flipping back and forth repeatedly between pictures, but overall I am very pleased.


This is the tool I was looking for now and makes it really easy to process my stuff!!!! thank you so much!

Now if there was only one for video Wink
24  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: RIOT tool that respects folder hierarchy? (for JPEG compression?) on: May 11, 2013, 01:56:36 PM
vlastimil,
Thanks for the clarification regarding the skip smaller feature.

I think where I am having difficult and need your help desperately is to find the "sweet spot" for JPEG optimization.   Am I wrong to assume that RIOT has some magic algorithim for quality/size ratio?

These are the settings:





0. I do NOT want to mess with the dimensions!!
1. Remove all meta dataa (EXIF, comments, etc)
2. 75% quality
3. Chroma subsampling 4:1:1 (????)
4. Standard optimize (not progressive)
5. Preserve file modification date


This is the name that I got: PhotoResizeP100ICROEG.exe
PhotoResizeP100ICROEG.exe






Please confirm if this is the correct name matching what I got. I am going to do some basic tests and compare file sizes/quality
25  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: RIOT tool that respects folder hierarchy? (for JPEG compression?) on: May 11, 2013, 04:43:40 AM
I tried comparing the file sizes/quality.   I really want to use your app vlastimil.  It would serve me TREMENDOUSLY and is exactly what I am looking for. 

I tried using your tool and RIOT still gave me better file sizes.  Could you replicate the best setting/file name for me?  If I use "skip smaller" option, it doesn't do anything.
