Some feedback in case its useful to others......

I couldn't get mplayer to work with that string, nor could I decipher the command line options (there appear to be hundreds, most relating to video...)

The AHK script worked, but audio disappeared after 2 folders, and only a reboot resolved it (until the next 2 folders...).  I could open/play the files manually regardless

Final solution - I eventually found that 1by1 had a configurable 'intro scan' function that does exactly what I wanted.  I knew it was there, but last time I used I don't think the play time was configurable 

EDIT:  Maybe worth noting that the 'preview' function in 1by1 only works on a folder by folder basis.  Not quite as convenient, but it's working for me...

2
don't mind the cli, but damn if the help file for mplayer isn't exactly helpful here.  I assume that there's no option for a recursive search with this option...

that AHK script is a winner (dunno why i didn't think of that).  Only thing I would like to see is some sort of delay between the tracks, ie the instant transition from track to track is somewhat jarring, though it does keep me focused (I added a 2 second mute at the end of the loop. does the trick)

Looking for an app that I can use to review >800 tracks. 

Background is that the files were all on a USB stick in my wifes car, and some were displaying odd artifacts at the beginning of the track when played on the car stereo. 

Rather than scrapping the whole lot I'm wanting to review them to see if any are actually corrupted or whether the problem may lay with the player (its in a 4 year old subaru)

60 seconds should be more than enough to id any offenders, and I can listen to them while I do other things.  Having to do it manwelly is tedious, and gets in the way of work

Idea's or suggestions appreciated!

another one that might be worth consideration, though probably not strictly a freeware site

Alternative To offers alternative solutions to a lot of mainstream apps

not much  of a video, but this guys worth a listen

here's a link to him doing enter sandman in the style of David Bowie



or see his other stuff on his youtube channel

portablefreeware.com - its my goto when I'm looking for something I can't get here. 

I monitor a handful of sites but if something catches my attention I always try and find the devs page rather than download from wherever I found it mentioned

just to confirm, you only need to define a time?

quick and dirty AHK code...

#persistent
MyHour = 07
myMin = 07

loop
{
  if A_hour = %myhour%
    loop
    {
if a_min = %myMin%
          click

sleep 750
    }
  sleep 750
}

any players here?  curious to know if its worth spending any money on

I loved 3 & 4, and I've just finished 5, but it has to be one of the buggiest games I've ever seen...

« on: April 02, 2019, 12:17 AM »
try changing the blend mode

thanks mouser! 

For some reason it was set to multiply.  No idea why it was like that, but as an occasional user (and a non graphics person) I don't know what most of these settings do

Screenshot Captor / Draw a rectangle on W10
« on: April 02, 2019, 12:02 AM »
It's likely me cos I'm not a regular user, but I'm not able to change the colour of a rectangle, specifically the border

I'm trying to highlight a bunch of fields on a screenshot and can only get a black rectangle (not yellow like I specified).

Any suggestions?

Good lord this Cranioscopicallity is spreading like a virus.
Do I sense some internal resistance?

That was a circuitous path to that current pun.

Circuitous?  More like a straight conduit to the pun...

Just DODdering along, more like...

This thread keeps soldering on....

we're determined to wiring as much out of it as possible

no doubt at some point we'll loop back to the beginning again

he was on a charge...

As long as he didn't charge into somebody, which might be considered battery, there should be no need to get the coppers involved.

we'd all end up in cells

Wow!  Congrats!  That didn't take long at all!

i interrupt this PUN war to report in from the field: I have somehow finished all electric wiring and plumbing, and everything works (!)
It all works?!  To celebrate, I volt for a Faraday for an entire week!
We'll just call you the generator of a new war...
Leave it to Jody Ohms to be the transformer of the conversation..
can someone remind me, wire are we doing this?
Because no one will be the terminator of the arc.
Yep, we just keep plugging along.


I suppose for some its an outlet, but for the rest its just circuitous...

As long as the posts are positive, and not negative, I'm happy to continue.

IC...

You either die a feature or live long enough to see yourself become a bug.

either one is irrelevant if its not documented

rule of thumb, no one should ever touch electricity...
Shocking revelation, that.
That lightning wit on display, eh?
These kinds of remarks are a bit of a jolt!

Ohm my word, I knew you all wouldn't be able to resist.
That comment really Hertz.
And so it should! After all, we are discussing the crown joules of mouser's demesne.
-cranioscopical (March 08, 2019, 02:46 PM)
I think that there is a potential difference that you re-fuse to see that I can't relay between our alternating current conversations.
We're poles apart and, to be direct, at the risk of seeming a growler, that kind of thinking comes close to analog ic. You really should keep an ion it.

come on guys, try to remember this is a DC forum...

pretty sure you guys have ground about as much as you can out of this
No one would fault mouser if he set an impedance on the frequency of off-topic conversations on this circuit and placed a demand on us to cut it short.
Or he lets us go on by extension, cord-ially....
could go either way, though I fully expect him to arc up soon
Would we want to have him amp up about this?
The mains part of this powerful conversation sure went off the rail, didn't it?
Only a third of it.
This conversation's spark is fading, so wire you giving it more continuity?
I can't tell—do you approve of such conduct or not?
-cranioscopical (March 11, 2019, 02:32 PM)
I feel a need to insulate myself from that line of questioning.
then watt will you do?
I personally volt that we end this now.

Come on Wraith, stay on the bus!

Living Room / Re: Is there any compact portable browser?
« on: March 11, 2019, 06:44 PM »
FWIW, on my old 1.5GB Atom powered netbook I used to use either K-Meleon or the XP version of PaleMoon (archive link) which had optimisations for Atom CPUs.

FWIW played with K-Meleon for a couple of days and it was terrible.  For the moment I'm assuming its the browser and not some other issue but I'll give palemoon a go and see what happens

Could be a rebuild in the works...

Plumbing and Electricity are two areas that I personally won't touch.  Good luck!

even electricians use that rule...
