Hi there. I'm back to C# and am getting by with web examples and a few books. However I'm stuck.

I've created a process and it happens to be FFMPEG

Code: C# [Select]
  1. System.Diagnostics.Process proc = new System.Diagnostics.Process();
  2.             //Some rubbish but long code removed
  3.             proc.EnableRaisingEvents = false;
  4.             proc.StartInfo.FileName = ffmpegLocation;
  5.             proc.StartInfo.Arguments = arguement;
  6.             proc.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = false;
  7.             if (showEncodingEngine)
  8.             {
  9.                 proc.StartInfo.CreateNoWindow = false;
  10.             }
  11.             else
  12.             {
  13.                 proc.StartInfo.CreateNoWindow = true;
  14.             }
  15.             proc.StartInfo.RedirectStandardOutput = false;
  16.             proc.StartInfo.RedirectStandardInput = false;
  17.             proc.StartInfo.RedirectStandardError = false;
  18.             proc.Start();
  19.             proc.WaitForExit();
  20.             proc.Close();

What I'd like to do is to have this process run in BelowNormal processor priority. I've found some things in the intelitext about it, but msdn isn't really helping me.

Psudo code would be

proc.processorpriority = priority.BelowNormal;

But it isn't that easy...

Thanks for any help

I still like the cat/dog captcha. Something easy to make,  update with new images, easy for humans to see and hard for computers.


Thank you for this Veign. Very generous

If you don't have a static IP with your Internet Provider then you can create a dynamic hostname (one that keeps track of your dynamic IP address) through

Has anyone noticed that the Live Mesh beta from Microsoft allows VNC style access to the desktop?

I use it to occasionally sync my firefox profile between home and work but haven't actually kept the home computer on to try out the remote desktop.

However it's free, and you know how good microsoft are at using their own code to make these things faster and better (at the expense of fair play...)

You need an email address. There is no other confirmation to do (unless they specifically target you for a random fraud test)

Yesterday there was a program on bits du jour that would make a storyboard from a videoclip, a little like media player classic does.

What I really want is something that will do what youtube does to videos, go into the clip and select the middle or few seconds in and take a screenshot and export it as a jpg file.

Is there anything out there that does this one thing? It would have to work via a command line as my video encoders generally work without user input.

You'd think they'd disable selecting, copying and pasting. Never mind print screen and the like.

Living Room / Why do browsers have a 'show password' button?
« on: September 04, 2008, 08:52 AM »
I've never really got this and was wondering if anyone could fill me in.

I don't understand why programs have a show password button inside the browser options and it might have to be the reason I remove Chrome.

At home I'm happy but at work I don't feel comfortable with someone walking up to my PC and then listing every username and password I have in the system.

IE just doesn't do it, fine. Firefox allows the passwords to be protected by a master password. You type that password once per session and then to show the passwords, fine. Chrome does neither, you just get to see them all.

Luckily the master password stopped Chrome from just importing them all, nice to see there is some security there in firefox. But I like Chrome and hope that this is just the learning curve of Beta software.


I love how big it is. Amazing what a simple thing like borderless with the address bar directly and soley above the content does.

I like it when a company pushes. IE was great when it killed Netscape but then stayed rubbish until Firefox came along. Now we have another new version coming. If this makes Firefox better than great.

At least if it is open source and google stick in some stong profiling or adverts then someone else will just remove them and re-compile it.

Handling was fun and a struggle -

I got stuck on the big balls one and then came here to see what you did.

I have to stop, if I try and recreate some of these things I'll never sleep.

I don't really like video chat, I don't want the other person to know that I'm wondering about the flat generally ignoring them while chatting.

However video conferencing in a suite or using a mobile projector is amazing. The quality and ease is excellent and the £3000 ish pounds is saved the first time you decide not to fly 5 people to America to 'have a chat'.

I like the idea, but by level 15 I could kill everything with two artillery strikes and a helicopter. Stopped being much point

The only program that I know of in our university that requires admin rights through and through is Microsoft Visual Studio as it has to create virual webservers and the like.

Also laptop owners that take laptops off site get their own rights. IT staff get a seperate account so they run as a limited user on their own computer but can create power when needed.

Applications that require admin rights can normally be installed and then right click the folder in program files and allow authenticated users to write. No need to give admin rights to the whole PC.

In our place I would say I rebuild 4 computers where the user is an admin to 1 computer where the user is a local account. Too many viruses, malware and installing of any old crap, normally illegal from limewire or torrent sites that f**k up the pc.

I did a search for myself and found the wrong pictures on the wrong articles.

And that took a 3 minutes wait per page

No problem. I to wanted this exact feature as I have Napster and Outlook running all day with no intention to need them in the task bar.

Trayit does this already


I tried that but it failed to work. I'm actually wondering if it is a problem with my router rather than the program though.

However, after working hard I've swapped the program with 'Switch off' (I don't know who has ripped off who but both look exactly the same) except that switch off can install itself as a service and seems happier with my router.

So, in the last 5 minutes, I have got my work phone out and

Switched off my computer by going to my website, which then forwards me to the switch off web interface, where I can set it to sleep
Switched on my computer by going to my website and typing in my pin, where the wake on network packet is sent to my computer

Result! Orb here we come!

Also, I'd blank your IP and blank your password better. I think I could guess that username and password...

So annoying. Shutter does *exactly* what I want it to but the settings in the program doesn't allow me to port forward through my router to the program

Wow, web interface for shutter looks exactly what I'm looking for. Seems amazing!

My web page ( is not on my computer. I was saying I could set up IIS on my PC, but I'd prefer not to.

Also worth mentioning that any shutdown command would need to know Vista's 'sleep' command as my computer cannot wake from a full shutdown.
