.. I just left DCPostNotifierLite running ...
Oh yes, that's a good idea - I was a little disappointed that I didn't receive a mail when DC was closed, and a mail again when it was up and running. But of course it is too late to learn from this, now, because it will never happen again!?  Wink

Sometimes things need to first go bad, in order to finally be better. This experience will improve DC even more!  thumbs up

Of course I was doubting if I could survive DC being down, but at least now I know I can. [attachimg=#]
4915  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / IDEA: add &fmt=6 or &fmt=18 to all youTube links on: March 01, 2008, 10:27:04 AM
"&fmt=6" or "&fmt=18" - I know I will not be able to remember such a suffix when I need it, so I was hoping it will be possible to have a script or to use a hotkey or press a button in order to add &fmt=6 or &fmt=18 to any given youtube URL.

Yes, there already is a Greasemonkey script for Firefox, but nothing yet for the IE based browsers.

Watch High-Resolution YouTube Videos

Posted: 29 Feb 2008 03:37 PM CST

The words YouTube and “high-resolution” have never really fit well in the same sentence. YouTube has always greatly limited the resolution of their videos to conserve on bandwidth, but going forward that may not always be the case. As it turns out there is a little something that you can add on to the end of a YouTube URL to have it play a high-resolution version of the same video.

The thing that you need to know, however, is that not every video has been re-encoded into the higher quality. In fact, I’ve tested this “trick” on about 40 videos, and only 7 of them had a higher quality version available. I’ve been reading around about this, and it looks as though newly uploaded videos are being converted a few hours after they’ve been added. And no one really seems to be sure as to whether it depends on the format of video (AVI, WMV, etc…).

I spent about 30 minutes trying to find a good video that has been converted to the higher resolution, and one that was also a good demonstration of why the higher quality matters. To really notice the difference I wanted to get something with a lot of motion, and I thought that there’s nothing better than the skateboarding dog made popular by the iPhone commercial!

Ready for the example? Just add &fmt=6 onto the end of any YouTube URL. Using the skateboarding dog as an example you would take the normal URL:

http://youtube.com/watch?v=CQzUsTFqtW0

and add the &fmt=6 onto the end:

http://youtube.com/watch?v=CQzUsTFqtW0&fmt=6

If the YouTube video just sits there loading then that is a sign that the video has not been converted to the higher resolution yet. To really see the difference you should view the video in full screen mode by clicking the button in the bottom-right corner of the player.

Note: Alternatively you can add &fmt=18 and it will play the high-resolution version when available, otherwise it will play the regular version. Here’s a Greasemonkey script that will automatically add &fmt=18 onto the end of each YouTube URL.

I took a still image from part of the video so that you can really compare the differences side-by-side:

[attachthumb=#]

I can’t wait for YouTube to start rolling this out to all of their videos, and hopefully they’ll add a button to their site where you can easily switch between the low and high quality versions on a per-video basis.

At the Thomas Wolsey School in Ipswich, Suffolk, U.K., there is this teacher, Mick Florey, who was getting tired of pupils loosing files or making all files ending up in the root folder. So he started writing a two-pane replacement for Explorer, in order to make life easier for the teachers. It didn't turn out to be quite as easy as he may have been wanting it to be, but after five years of trying he is now quite happy with the result: FileOrganiser - version 1.126 updated 29' Febr. 2008.

I won't be the judge of his work, but it is different in a good way, I think. thumbs up

I tried the ForceVision too, and there sure were some fine features, but ind the end we didn't make friends with each other. ImageWalker is fine too, and makes me wonder: just how big / small is a thumb's nail? Anyway, I like this version of the Thumbnail's view:

It sure makes room for a lot of nails, doesn't it...

I visited them 6 hours ago and was not able to download anything from my favourite tags. But it is good to know that at least some videos can be safed.  thumbs up

Maybe only a few of you, if any, were using Stage6, but I will miss it a lot. Yesterday was THE last day, so I downloaded 370 music video files... (22GB - sometimes it really is a good thing to have a fast Internet connection!), and I am looking forward to watch and listen to all this fine music. Of course Stage6 was also housing some crappy videos, but in general the good thing about Stage6 was that you would find much higher quality videos than you would at uTube etcetera. Maybe Stage6 was not The King -...- but: Stage6 has left the building.

The thing I like most about FastView after 3½ days is the power to rapidly view the content of a lot of files of various formats, one after the other, without opening all sorts of file viewers. Other than that, I suspect I will use FastView quite seldom.

You may want to capture a copy of the '9-11 Eyewitness', 679 MB, 105 minutes. No, it is not suitable for compression because then you won't be able to see the first person who jumped....  ohmy

... I'm writing this message today to inform you that we plan to shut down Stage6 on February 28, 2008. Upload functionality has already been turned off, and you'll be able to view and download videos until Thursday.

I know this news will come as a shock and disappointment to many Stage6 users, and I'd like to take a few moments to explain the reasons behind our decision. (...)

So why are we shutting the service down? Well, the short answer is that the continued operation of Stage6 is a very expensive enterprise that requires an enormous amount of attention and resources that we are not in a position to continue to provide. There are a lot of other details involved, but at the end of the day it's really as simple as that.

Now, why didn't we think of that before we decided to create Stage6 in the first place, you may ask? That's a good question. When we first created Stage6, there was a clear need for a service that would offer a true high-quality video experience online because other video destinations on the Internet simply weren't providing that to users. A gap existed, and Stage6 arrived to fill it.

As Stage6 grew quickly and dramatically (accompanied by an explosion of other sites delivering high-quality video), it became clear that operating the service as a part of the larger DivX business no longer made sense. We couldn't continue to run Stage6 and focus on our broader strategy to make it possible for anyone to enjoy high-quality video on any device. So, in July of last year we announced that we were kicking off an effort to explore strategic alternatives for Stage6, which is a fancy way of saying we decided we would either have to sell it, spin it out into a private company or shut it down.

I won't (and can't, really) go into too much detail on those first two options other than to say that we tried really hard to find a way to keep Stage6 alive, either as its own private entity or by selling it to another company. Ultimately neither of those two scenarios was possible, and we made the hard decision to turn the lights off and cease operation of the service.

So that's where we are today. After February 28, Stage6 will cease to exist as an online destination. But the larger DivX universe will continue to thrive. Every day new DivX Certified devices arrive on the market making it easy to move video beyond the PC. Products powered by DivX Connected, our new initiative that lets users stream video, photos, music and Internet services from the PC to the TV, are hitting retail outlets. We remain committed to empowering content creators to deliver high-quality video to a wide audience, and we'll continue to offer services that will make it easy to find videos online in the DivX format.

It's been a wild ride, and none of it would have been possible without the support of our users. Thank you for making Stage6 everything that it was.

Wrong, Curt!

Sorry! embarassed

Edit: However, this does not apply to he pre-made macros, they are all in German.
4925  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: My favorite software! What's yours? on: February 24, 2008, 06:03:18 PM
a text completer or abbreviation expander?

- both.

Is it payware or freeware?

- both

which versions of Windows does it run on?

- all

 Wink


Lite Personal is free, Personal Plus is €16 once, with optional €8.25 per year/updating. Lite is max 15 macros and for max 5 machines. The free lite is missing a few features like drag&drop, text storage, or what it was and I don't know.

One very fine feature is that you can use the hotkey * - which today's Giveawayoftheday, Typing Assistant, won't let you. This will make it so much easier to come up with nice unforgettable hotkeys.   thumbs up
