I got the following sort of thing trying to take a look:

Thanks again!

Thanks!  Looking forward to trying it out...downloading seems a bit slow here ATM smiley

I have a dock item for Video2MP3 in LaunchBar Commander on to which I drop video files, but then to look at the results, end up opening the directory containing Video2MP3.exe.

Thought it might be convenient for the created audio files to end up somewhere else.

Two obvious possibilities:

  • the directory containing the video files (my preference)
  • some user-specifiable fixed location

What do you think?

There was a Wikipedia page related this subject:

Perhaps all of the articles mentioned at its end have already been posted, but FWIW smiley

A bit late to the party...

Did anyone get around to trying it out?

1532  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Setting Up PortableApps' Opera 11.10 With Voice Capability on: April 19, 2011, 07:59:05 AM
This is a summary of getting PortableApps' Opera 11.10 to work with Voice.  (Inspired by the Text-To-Speech Freeware? topic.)

  • Install PortableApps' version of Opera 11.10 -- assuming below in a directory named 'OperaPortable'
  • Start OperaPortable\OperaPortable.exe
  • In Opera, navigate to Settings > Preferences > Advanced > Voice
  • Enable, disable, and re-enable "Enable voice-controlled browsing" via the corresponding checkbox
  • If asked whether to download some file, answer in the affirmative
  • If after downloading, failure is reported, use a packet sniffer (e.g. SmartSniff from NirSoft or Wireshark) to determine a URL for the aforementioned file (the file name may look something like: 20110330.1.vxm_win_full_11.10.zip)
    • Download the file in question
    • Under OperaPortable\Data\profile, create a voice directory
    • Extract the content of the zip file in the new directory (so the new directory should contain files with names including vxm.dll, vxmplugin.dll, etc.)
    • Via Opera's address bar, access opera:config#VoiceXML|VoiceXMLEnabled and ensure it is checked
    • Similarly, access opera:config#VoiceXML|VoiceXmlPlugin and ensure it refers to OperaPortable\Data\profile\voice\vxmplugin.dll
    • Save preferences if necessary
    • Restart Opera
  • Select some text in a page displayed in Opera, right-click to bring up a context menu, and choose the "Speak" item

Tested (only the reading aloud portion) with Windows XP SP3.

Perhaps it will work with a 3.x series of VirtualBox...
I uninstalled 4.0.4 and installed 3.2.12 instead.  Importing worked with 3.2.12...

Although it's a bit late perhaps, I offer my thanks for this topic.

I am looking at jEdit again and it definitely seems worth consideration.  The speed definitely seems to have improved considerably.

Thanks!

I tried Paragon Go Virtual here on a Windows XP SP3 machine with VirtualBox 4.0.4, unfortunately without success so far.

In VirtualBox, during an attempt of the File > Import Appliance ... sequence, I got basically the same result as in the following post:

http://forums.virtualbox....topic.php?f=7&t=40673

Quote
Failed to import appliance -- snipped --.
Storage for the medium -- snipped -- is not created.
Result Code:
VBOX_E_INVALID_OBJECT_STATE (0x80BB0007)
Component:
Medium
Interface:
IMedium {9edda847-1279-4b0a-9af7-9d66251ccc18}

Perhaps it will work with a 3.x series of VirtualBox...

Any insight from others?

I've tried Dolphin HD once but found it slow compared to the stock browser.

Just tried Dolphin and I like it better than the stock browser, a lot easier to use, speed is about the same - thanks for mentioning it  Thmbsup
Trying out Dolphin recently too and have been finding its tab-related behavior preferable to the default Browser (nice to be able to switch tabs quickly with the volume hardware keys too).

A number of applications seem to use F11 for full-screen mode (e.g. IE, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, jEdit, SpeedCrunch, VLC)...it seems like it might be developing into a kind of convention.
1539  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Java code help on: April 18, 2011, 06:03:52 AM
FWIW, to use things like System.out.printf, String.format, and friends, I had more luck with beanshell2 than with ordinary beanshell:

http://code.google.com/p/beanshell2/

[copy or print]
System.out.printf("num is %.2f\n", Math.PI);
System.out.print(String.format("%.2f", Math.PI));

May be it makes more sense to learn the printf format strings as they are used in other programming languages too...

I think the single 0 may be normal behavior for the values in question.  If you want two 0s, may be using something like DecimalFormat will work.

I pasted the following into beanshell (w/ Capture System in/out/err chosen via the File menu):

Quote
import java.text.*;

double arg2 = 50000.00;
String pattern = "###.00";
DecimalFormat df = new DecimalFormat(pattern);
System.out.println(arg2 + " " + pattern + " " + df.format(arg2));

The result was:

Quote
50000.0 ###.00 50000.00

How does that seem?

1544  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: Dropping Multiple "Documents" On To A Single Dock Item on: April 17, 2011, 12:31:18 PM
there is no current way to do it, but it could be added pretty easily.
Thanks.  Sounds promising smiley

a question is -- how do these apps want multiple files to be specified? as additional commandline arguments?
I believe so -- for the applications listed in the OP, I think it's just:

[copy or print]
exename filename1 filename2 ... filenamen

It would also be nice to be able to work with things like HashMyFiles, where what's necessary is:

[copy or print]
exename /files filename1 filename2 ... filenamen

1548  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Dropping Multiple "Documents" On To A Single Dock Item on: April 17, 2011, 12:32:13 AM
I use some applications which are able to open multiple "documents" that are simultaneously dropped on to their corresponding executables [1].  I haven't succeeded in getting LBC dock items to work this way though - although dropping a single document does seem to work as expected.  Is it already possible?


[1] Some example applications: ReNamer, VirusTotalUpload2, Audacity, WinMerge, GIMP, Notepad++

If it happens again, perhaps folks who can reproduce the problem can capture some of the sessions using something like Wireshark...

Seems like it came out fine smiley

FWIW, wrapping in a code tag seems to provide some degree of protection:
