VLC seems to mess up 10-bit HEVC streams. First image is from gnome mplayer and displays correctly, second is from VLC and colors are somewhat distorted.

Did you know? Women reach their sexual peak after 35 years. Men reach theirs after about 4 minutes.

A geysir made from the direct water-intake to a hydroelectric power plant. After passing though 2000 meters of pipes and 500 meters of waterfall, it arrives at the power plant with a pressure of 44 bars and shoots 75 meters up into the air. Geysir is run twice a day for 5 minutes at 1pm and 9pm, video is from the 9 pm run.

@FiXato Just wondering if you've seen the latest revision of this thing and got any opinions about it? πŸ˜€

The 5th experiment. It might be just small tweaks at the end of the day but I'm starting to feel I'm getting somewhere and it's more polished somehow.

Anyway, links as usual: eclectic.link/art-ea-v5 & eclectic.link/art-ea-v5.stream

My videos currently span a range of resolutions from the smallest at 256x144 to the highest at 1920x1080 and I've been debating with myself if there are any advantages to go with a single video resolution.

If I scaled them up to say fit a FullHD 1920x1080 resolution, does that give me any advantages? I can only see the one downside, more diskspace without any quality gains. Perhaps it would make it easier to process them if I kept them at the same standard format? Anyone got thoughts on this?

Another week and more tweaks. Back to "full" version. Happy with the process to create 10-bit files, so back to 8-bit for compatability, at least while alternatives are not ready. This should work fine on most new androids at least.

I think the title and group positions in the beginning should be swapped, but I'll fix it next round.

After a request from @FediVideos I decided to take a shot at updating the English-language narration for the "What is PeerTube?" explainer video. Video is released as CC-Share Alike, feel free to use it where/how it might be helpful for the #PeerTube community!

@Framasoft

I thought this would work but checking again now it seems like I was mistaken. VLC give me audio but no video, and chrome doesn't even start playing. πŸ€”
Perhaps going for profile3 was taking it too far πŸ˜€

New upload v3:

Some further experiments on the video format. Bigger fonts on text, both intro and end scroller. Changed how the text is made so easier to thow in a few text formats and fills more of the black area.

Since as far as I can tell people think the demo itself is fine, this time I dropped it and only included the intro and outro bits, since those are the focus at the moment.

@FiXato Don't know if it's because I tweaked things but discovered you can plug the download url straight into VLC. For this one it's algorithmic.tv/download/videos

Perhaps I should make it part of the short-url scheme ..

Another experiment, with the same old video. Spent the time creating the build-tools, and bumped the quality bar even higher. This is another vp9/opus but in an mp4 container with HLS on the server. Also, proper black on the end scroller πŸ‘

I've been fiddling with my video format for a while, and took the "corrupted archives" incident as an excuse to redo things differently.

While the demos themselves are the same as always, I decided to bake all the text that came with it into the video itself and create a proper end/outro thing.

All of it is still work in progress but I wanted to get some input on what people thought about it, so consider this an early access of some kind. I needed a demo to experiment on as well so enjoy "Call of the Wild" by some mad people. Heia

Finally the video itself is my attempt at a 10-bit video so it might be picky on the mediaplayer/browser you attempt to play it on but should be supported on modern browsers at least.

Are there any browsers out there that support 10-bit HEVC video playback? tried Firefox/Chrome/Chromium so far and no luck. Audio but no video

In 1993 I created a very specific antivirus on Atari ST to eradicate a very common virus that plagued our floppy disks: GHOST.

Ghost was considered benign by many people, because the only thing it did was to reverse the Y axis of the mouse every 10 infections. It was so common that some people were used to this Y-axis inversion when using their ST everyday.

that VLC have the ability to synchronously play two media files. Handy since I usually keep the A/V separated while I'm working on them.
