You have to re-encode it. ffmpeg is pretty good once you get to grips with it, but learning all the switches and commands to use can take some time. Plus I end up encoding about 5-10 times depending on the content, length, size limitation etc.

I can write up some example command lines if you like.

There's a tool called WebM For Retards that works as an easy frontend for ffmpeg. Or there was a tool called that. Github went full SJEW over it so it might be called something else.

XMedia Recode

it's not super-polished or anything, but it's a good GUI (click and point interface) that uses ffmpeg libraries for ppl not comfortable with the command-line

drag your video onto the list
pick webm for format
then under filter/preview pick resolution
you can tinker with other settings like audio/no audio, bitrate, two-pass encoding, audio codecs, etc
when you're ready, click add to queue, then click encode. voila!

same here. linux is great, but it can't come close to creative software available on mac (and windows). Same goes for android vs iOS.
Music software on android is inherently broken at the core.
Maybe if i were aphex twin.

Anyway you can still do all the command line stuff on mac. one of the things i loved about using linux a while ago was the amazing community of helpful nerds on sites like askubuntu. if you're smart, you can get these same linux nerd tips to apply to your mac.

There's this guy who was caught on surveillance cameras murdering a guy in Mendocino my home county. He and some friends murdered a guy and stole his 120+ pounds of pot. Doing some social media sleuthing has yielded the murderers instagram account.

My question today is what manner of leet hax are required to get someone's IP and physical location based on minimal information such as his instagram account?

Here's the news story in a local paper as well as a pic of his face. His Instagram handle is @wah_boo

I've been using Dreamhost to host my email and look after my domains (nothing hosted really) for the past few years because there was an offer of free domains at the time of SOPA and it was a good deal back then.

I've been applying for jobs and visas recently and I found out that no one has been able to email me for more than a month, they get a message about the account not existing. I can email out, and check my existing mails but just can't receive. Basically a complete shitshow.

I need a RELIABLE email host that doesn't cost the earth who I also have the option to transfer my domains to, potentially with some light hosting. Does anyone here have any suggestions?

I'm thinking about upgrading my computer.
At the moment I am using some ancient motherboard, similar in capacity to a raspberry pi or something, except it's x86.
But it's occurred to me that my phone is more powerful than my desktop, as it has four times as many cores and twice as much memory.

I wondered if it's worth looking at replacing my motherboard with some ARM based thing? If there's a computer system that has a many-core ARM processor, 4 gigs or whatever of RAM, and fits where a standard PC motherboard would go then I'd be interested in knowing about that.

I don't care about recompiling my operating system. Just so long as I can run Linux, browse, compile-and-run my software, and play a full-screen video if I choose. Oh, and also: GPIO would be a plus.

Tethering from hotel wi-fi is using data plan on two 2/3 phones by ShitSinningfurk.dun - Sun, 30 Oct 2016 12:36:05 EST ID:Bw2TOsl/ No.120020 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

My family of 3 is currently living in a hotel. We use LG G2 running Android 5.0.2 and our carrier is AT&T. We have a shitty 8GB data plan but have access to the hotel's wi-fi and 2 different desktop computers in here. When I tether my phone I don't use up any of the data plan.

I know this because I downloaded a 15GB game (over fucking wi-fi) and the carrier says I've used 200MB. When the other two phones are tethered to the hotel wi-fi they still use the data on our plan. I've checked and rechecked their phone settings, everything is set up exactly the same as mine aside from USB debugging, but I don't think that's relevant. Any ideas?

Try this though, if wanted. Clear you firefox or whatever browser cache and return to the site, bookmak it to go straight there. I have found interesting .exe files that were listed as straight up viruses in the browsers cache. Being in cache is not an issue, if it actually gets executed is though is another. I never actually tried to run these from cache, (sounds fun to try.) My bet if browsing under an admin account these could possibly simply execute themselves. I could be wrong but under certain circumstances could possibly do so I would assume.

If the computer was bought new and still has the default manufacturers software, help, user experence, call computer manufacturers home apps etc, that would be a very likely issue.

Can go to ad remove programs and see what is installed.

Can go to start, type in msconfig go to 'startup' and see what is there which starts at startup.

Call it overkill but reinstalling windows with a clean windows, not a manufacturers windows
version. Use win7 professional if possible. I does perform better. If win10, don't know what to

You can also get super good deals on old Xeon processors that would still knock your socks off.

If you could get a dual xeon mac pro and upgrade it that stands to be one hell of a bitchin' rig.

Generally though CPU computing performance improvements have just slowed down a lot so when facebook upgrades their datacenters a bunch of $80 super high end CPUs from 2012 get dumped on the market and they're not nearly the joke that a 5 year old processor would have been in 2011

The discount you can get for a fast Xeon doesn't make sense over a comparable i7 once you take into account extra expenses. If you're more into core count and server boards than single threaded performance though, you can get some retardedly cheap CPUs. I'm looking on ebay to edify myself and someone paid $5 per core for a pair of Xeons last month.
