@rysiek Facinating read, thanks for sharing.

This is the most ridiculous C64 demo ever and it was just released. You need to watch this. https://youtu.be/zprSxCMlECA
In this episode of "Espen does things he has no skills in": Building a new deck for the backyard. #vacation
Fixed up #discourse today which had become a bit unhappy with the whole redis/sidekiq situation. The web interface does not, at least not easily that I can see, support connecting to socket files.
I might be wrong here and somehow manage to persuade HLS.js to play vp9/opus inside an mp4 container. Will need to investigate that further.
YES! I finally did it and achieved a partial win over #peertube.
I have been battling to have my videos support HLS and other modern good things, but it seems like the only way to this currently is to use a patent-covered codec from 2003 (H.264/AVC) until something like DASH is implemented, which at least supports VP9. Anyway, I digress..
After patching Peertube into "Do NOT touch my streams" mode, the resulting videos have been extremely wonky to put it mildly, jerky and pixelated, so it's been several days of uploading and deleting to find something that works. And while I had pretty much resigned and figured that this is why we can't have nice things, I tried a few desperate last attempts, and suddenly it works.
Video is unlisted, but here it is anyway in all it's HLS glory: https://eclectic.link/art-001
TLDR takeaway, #ffmpeg is not always the right tool for the job.
Anyone an expert with #ffmpeg? I'm copying a video in .264 format into a mp4 container using -c:v copy and the stream have no timestamps. How can I get ffmpeg to stop complaining and create some where none exist? I've tried various combinations of "-fflags +genpts" and "-r $framerate" without much success and my google-fu is not leading anywhere.
@frank Hei, I got busy during the weekend but just wanted to say thank you for this. I did keep at it and eventually did figure out why every single documented dev-procedure failed to work.
After studying the source I don't think it's possible to accomplish what I attempted by plugin alone after all, so I ended up hacking on the sources instead.
I guess time will tell how radical the modifications need to be :)
