General Software Discussion / Re: Windows 11 Announced
« on: October 06, 2021, 06:09 PM »
Even something as simple as GIMP is a far cry from Windows equivalents (and I don't mean just Photoshop, others too like Affinity). I have spent the past few years dual booting or having one on a computer and the other on another. Linux for desktop is not a replacement unfortunately. Hasn't gotten much closer either ... in my opinion, others can of course feel differently.
As another example, closing laptop lid when full screen video running may or may not make the laptop go to sleep. I have posted and sought out support about it ... but even support can solve an issue like this, my opinion is and will be based on how a system/OS/software acts in a default install.

I doubt I will attempt workarounds to get Win11 but Win10 will be my main OS for a while yet.

By 2025 I will likely need a new PC though. The point is not to lock based on artificial requirements (which this is if there are any - Windows 10 iso or other - workarounds). In other words, before 2025 Windows 11 uptake will be worse than some vaccination drives...

2013 released laptop with Intel Core i5-4300U is of course not 8th gen and predictably fails the Windows 11 requirements check. Nothing wrong with this laptop and the only change I have ever felt it needed (and was done) was drive and RAM upgrades.

In HTML5 times probably have to embed a video but tools like mouser's output huge videos, have to read on compression or just create a good quality gif.
Same thing with ffmpeg, simple commands don't work, the same 0 seconds output as the video convertors above.

Will try ffmpeg and swifty, thanks. Can I get the exe please? It is not available on the site I believe

In previous times (not related to this swf) no matter what I did screentogif looked like it lost quality or resolution, played with frames and every other setting in it and still never understood why.

Looks like the same issue with the download version and a couple of other online convertors. The output is a static file, some formats only 1k size.

The online version (tried to mp4, avi and others) doesn't seem to handle the swf file well, it says converting but the converted file is 0 seconds (but over 100k). The original swf file is 39k, nothing too unusual, basically animated text and logo.
Will attempt the download version, thanks.

Living Room / swf to gif (or other usable format)
« on: June 01, 2021, 02:46 PM »
Hi all :)

I have a swf file that I need to convert to be usable on a current web page. I can only find flash emulators that open the swf file in a browser and little else (they can't export to animated gif for example(?))
A downloadable software like lightspark does not even install properly or crash (latest version, tried both 32bit and 64bit)

I would think an Adobe product like After Effects would be able to open it and export it to a usable format but even if it does I have no access to Adobe products.

Any ideas?

If I don't manually add anything the GoTo menus does nothing, clicking it there is nothing. This of course after navigating through various folders and clicking on GoTo everytime.

14
No change.

When I manually add a folder it is remembered and I can use the GoTo to choose that folder.

This also relates to DoogiePIM in the sense that an Android version was to come but was pushed back in favour of more focus on the local program....imo not coincidentally development has slowed somewhat

The general concept of allowing third parties access to accounts is asking for trouble. To my knowledge the only place I have done this is a couple of things on twitter and a couple of things to save backups to dropbox, the latter I only did after years of resisting.

These would indicate that it is legit, at least low chance of non-legit

Somewhat on topic:
of course it is not possible to compare browsers with audio/video players but using PotPlayer I paste the youtube url and it barely nudges the cpu, ram, disk usage. In FF (btw with only 1 addon) it keeps eating all of them. I have tried tweaks and config settings for years, not just recently, it is a losing battle, it is crazy what browsers have become. Chrome seems to behave a bit better but it is not vast improvement. Again this is not one version or one cheap computer, etc.

General Software Discussion / Re: looking for cheap email hoster
« on: November 29, 2019, 12:32 AM »
If you are willing to go with a host and not strictly an email provider then hawkhost has prices of $1.35 per month as black friday promotion, very good support and for sure not a spam hoster.

Depending on scope I can help, if he is interested in sharing details to which I will reply 'I can' or 'sorry can not'.
