101  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Duplicate Video Search on: March 18, 2014, 03:02:37 AM
And for those who may not be aware of Duplicate Video Search:

Yet another Bolide product, so I cannot say if it ever will be updated.
But it still is brand new and well working.  thumbs up
Modified: Only now do I notice my copy calls itself version 16 ! But, ehm... how can a version "16" be so different from normal programs, lacking both this and that normal feature? The user's graphical interface is abnormal, to say the least.

Anyway, the scanning's end result is fine
- and should be, because this is not freeware, but $30

Duplicate Video Search

Step 4: Specify video indexing and matching options (optional)

    First, you need to specify how many seconds of each video should be indexed. The longer this interval is, the more accuratelly duplicate videos will be detected (there will be less false positives). However, it takes more time to index long intervals, we recommend to find some optimum or keep default value (3 seconds).

    Enable “Skipe first 3 minutes” option if you are going to organize a movie collection. Movies can have similar beginnings (intro of a movie company), so to avoid wrong detections, our program allows to start processing only from 3rd minute of a video (after all intros).

    “Fast video reading” option makes video reading 2-3 times faster by ansyncing video and audio. Unfortunatelly some DirectShow codecs may be unstable in that circumstances and lead to crash. Disable “Fast video reading” option in case you faced smth. like this.

    Adjust “Sensitivity” slider to regulate how close the detected duplicates should be. It is recommended to change this option after running a first scan, in case there are too many false detections or vise versa. Second scan is usually pretty fast, cause Duplicate Video Search stores all indexes to the cash and so does not have to repeate video indexing twice.

    Some video duplicates can be misaligned in time, i.e. same momemnt can take a place on 2:03 on a first video and and on 2:07 on a second one. To accept this, set “Max shift” value to 5 seconds.

Step 5: Start retrieval

Click the “Search” button to start retrieval. Duplicate Video Search will scan the selected folders for duplicate video files. Found clips are compared against each other and grouped together if they have similar content.

Since there are many video formats in the world, our software determines duplicates on the basis of the visual content of files. For this, the program processes each file and generates it`s short signature which is compared against signatures of other files. This process is also known as video fingerprinting.

To index video, Duplicate Video Search processes only limited number of seconds of each video and stores a calculated signature in cache, so that next time you need to organize video files, the program can re-use cached signatures and process only new clips.

Columbo, Quincy, Perry Mason, Jim Rockford and Jonathan & Jennifer Hart all hunted killers, really many killers, in Los Angeles. But Oxford is so much smaller than L.A. that the murder rate per capita is much higher in Oxford. In fact there were so many murders in these areas that TV series were made about it. Detective series.

Come to think of it, Cabot Cove in New England (USA) may have had even more murders. They were all solved by an amateur detective named Jessica Fletcher. My mother liked her, but I liked the British detectives better.

Television detectives, kalos. Made Up television detectives.

Not overly fond of TED, nor many of the sponsors, but that does not invalidate all the content.

^yes, it does.

God stated it already some 3.000 years ago in Job's Book in the Bible;
if the heart of a story is a lie, then all of the story is a lie.

There may be very little in life where I agree with Renegade, but TED is one.

~one of those weird situations where I could only open the target link in Internet Explorer, because Firefox wouldn't recognize it as something to download (not ".mp3" but ".htm").

I agree with the important parts of this interpretation:

call us back on 01865 826245, and at Wednesday the 26th of March be at Plant Swindon, at reception at quarter to eight for an eight o'clock start.  until approximately half-past twelve. /Jodie Evans

The involved phones are suffering from lack of sound quality, and her pronunciation is a little sloppy. However, at the same time I would say her English is fine, but that of a young mind; not really concerned with the other part...

Are you ready to face death, kalos? We all know there are more murders happening in and around Oxford than anywhere else in the world! Are you going to kill, to manhandle a BMW?

Was that too much?  undecided

I don't have twitter or instagram, so I walk the streets, shouting at random people. I'm screaming out what it looks like in my place, and what I do, what I am eating and drinking, what I am hearing, watching, (not) thinking, what clothes I am wearing, and what my pet just did.

So far I have 3 followers, yeah! One I think is a doctor, the other two are policemen.

 Grin  I clearly must be suffering from some similar disease, since my first reaction was that it surely must come from some third party application.

But how can bit get Copy Image Location back, if it has been broken?  tellme

If I (still) had the problem, I think I would first create a list of links to the various extensions that I would want to keep, and then simply uninstall the Internet browser, reboot PC, and install the browser and the addons all over again.

But even reading about it, sounds wearying! Any easier solution for bit?
107  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: How link to pix in Tumblr? on: March 16, 2014, 03:49:46 AM
I see now that Copy Image Location is default part of the Firefox right-click context menu. So you already have it, whether you can find it or not ~ it can be broken.

hm... I didn't even know there could be limitations on Tumblr!

Firefox (Pale Moon):


Or do you meet the limitations in some other contexts?
Please enlighten me, I know nothing about Tumblr.

113  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: jv16 PowerTools - using Indiegogo to 'fund'' open-sourcing it on: March 13, 2014, 11:14:33 AM
The well respected charter member is entitled to think whatever thoughts he may want to, but allow me to quote another well respected charter member:

Macecraft has historically been anything but greedy.  Freeware for years, JV16 Power Tools is now a modest $29.95.  Yearly upgrade fees are $6.95.  This is their (pretty damn relaxed) policy on licensing for personal users.  There's no activation or other baggage.

"A single personal license can be used with up to five personal computers at your home if the computers are mainly used only by you or the members of your family."

The point being that some of us believes Jouni Vuorio (author & owner of Macecraft JV16) to be quite okay; you know, "our kind of guy".

I don't know if JV16 will exist tomorrow, but until further notice JV16 is regularly updated.

On another angle, Jouni Vuorio has on more than one occasion acted somewhat "naive".

sorry, my first post was too hasty and superficial


Now I am your camera
when you look at me, I am not looking at me but at you
It may seem that you and I are looking in opposite directions
when you look to the left, I will look to the right
Well, how come I am not looking down, when you are looking up?
- "Strikes me as strange" -
When you are looking to the left, you are not looking to the right
- eh, that sounds stupid to even mention -
but it is the point!
We are not looking in opposite directions,
we are just looking from different positions!
we are both looking at different targets, and from different locations
So it would be more strange, if what we saw, were the same.

may be, but that is how we see you;
when you lift your right hand, I am seeing it to your left
from where I am situated.

That's great news, Curt.  Thanks for letting us know.

^thank YOU, cyberdiva: You were "my girlfriend":

Quote from: Curt's mail to Magix
(I expected your answer to say it would be a matter between me and 01Net, but my girlfriend forced me to write you anyway)

I hope you don't mind too much...
120  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: What happened? on: March 11, 2014, 04:41:50 AM
I followed diva's recommendation and posted in the forum. They kindly gave the proper address for Magix Support, whom I now have written. Let them first enjoy their week-end and then maybe answer me no later than Tuesday.

Wow; sometimes one really can be lucky! Back in the days when I (felt that I) had been paying and paying an endless amount of money to Magix and Xara, I lost my trust in them  ~ I felt they were conmen.

This time I was pleasantly surprised! Without arguing they offered to donate me a new license key for an international Xara version! Installing "as we speak"

122  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Malwarebytes is moving away from lifetime licenses on: March 11, 2014, 02:25:29 AM
Have to say it isn't clear how the new licensing system will work with old licenses - I hope they don't have to go through the hassle with lifetime licenses of contacting them for new licenses when new versions are released.
Not sure what you mean.

I am not Carol, but.... It is my impression that Carol most likely was talking about the form of the new license...: "Will the next form be the same as the old: ID: 1RK12-A12RK Key: 1ABC-A1A1-1ABC-ABCD , or will I have to contact support to (freely) get my license renewed because the new form is different, say, Key: 1CRK-R1K1-1CRK-R1K1-1CRK-R1K1-1CRK-R1K1-1CRK-R1K1-1CRK-R1K1" ?


I actually came to remind what 4wd said: It is important to remember that the current license merely is good for a single pc. I have tested a licensed MBytes on this machine, so I had to purchase a new license, just to be able to test it again for a fair price on my next machine.

Am I wrong about that?  Is today's lifetime license good for 3 PCs?
Current Lifetime license is only good for 1 PC - as shown when purchasing.


The Malwarebytes installer has not been updated for a year (9 April 2013)!!?
