vixy.net alternatives

Filed under: bookmarkified,DARPA,DIY — Sagacious Himself @ 9:57 am
Tags: ,

2012 updates: 

I do NOT endorse the downloadable binaries from the ‘new’ vixy.net site or any other site Applian has hijacked to promote schlock.

 

AVOID “freecorder”!!  Applian “free”corder is MALWARE (adware).

 

Instead all Open Source, all currently trustworthy:

combine acquisition:
http://xviservicethief.sourceforge.net/

with sensible cross-platform conversion:
http://avidemux.sourceforge.net/

realtime transcoding [dlna] more cross platform joy:
http://code.google.com/p/ps3mediaserver/

cross-platform playback of almost any format/container (without screwing over DirectShow filters for those still using windows)
http://videolan.org/
or
http://mplayerhq.hu/
w
indows suggestion:  MPlayer [Mulder] MPUI full package

else:
http://xbmc.org

xbmc on the inexpensive side
http://raspberrypi.org  ($35)
http://xbian.org  (xbmc sd image)

XBMC painless streaming of The Blaze [TV]

some/many of the below links are existentially challenged

# end 2012 updates

OLD vixy alternatives:
http://www.mediaconverter.org/ (fastest)
http://www.zamzar.com — 100 filesize limit, feed it disposable email
http://media-convert.com/ [defunct now 2011]
http://www.all2convert.com/ — now running “vixy clone script”
defunct: convert.vx2.com
defunct: beta.mux.am — domain hijacked

old/kludge/not-free: real time transcoding [internets streaming] alternatives
MediaPortal
TVersity

edit: I wish I had harnessed my passion for alternatives categorization into a profitable site.  Who knew alternativeto would prosper

I wish I had rolled my “whereamI” domain use into a public service in the 90s; I would be receiving the vast twit*r income

edit2: If you have been coerced into purchasing an unlimited bandwidth data plan for your mobile phone be sure it has not been limited with *needless* throttling or voip destructive nat.  Both are harmful to accessing [home] real-time-transcoding media streaming to mobile phone.

guess which collectivist said this

Filed under: All Your Base — Sagacious Himself @ 9:26 am
Tags:

“We demand that the State shall make it its primary duty to provide a livelihood for its citizens.”

“Our individual salvation depends on our collective salvation.”

“It’s time to put the common good, the national interest, ahead of individuals.”

“Our nation can achieve permanent health only from within on the basis of the principle: The common interest before self-interest.”

“It’s time for a new beginning, for an end to government of the few, by the few, and for the few, and to replace it with shared responsibility for shared prosperity.”

“All individuals or groups are relative, only to be conceived in their relation to the State.”

“It’s only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential.”

“We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good. ”

“The world needs a new moral architecture… I believe that this should be the first topic to debate in our world of today, ethics, moral.”

“I am a fan of the social policies that you find in Europe.”

XP SP2 faster than Vista SP1 – vista fanbois will not be happy

Filed under: CIO — Sagacious Himself @ 9:23 am

No test required to tell you vista 32bit performance sucks. 32bit vista needs more ram than architecture can address

UC-Logic WP8060-TAB08 using PenTablet Simulated driver for HID Minidriver – not pentab not wintab not well designed

Filed under: bargain,gadget,pentab,wintab,wisptis — Sagacious Himself @ 8:11 am

pentablet driver WinDDK

among other curiosities it installs one HID, two mice, and one tablet device. AFAIK Wacom has patented the no-battery stylus, so this tablet’s stylus uses one AAA battery. $35 from retailer + $7 shipping. Recently discovered there’s a $20 rebate available!

Install drivers, connect tablet, enjoy the plethora of new devices!

now: FOUR HIDs, three HID mice, and one tablet:

UC-logic illogical device design

http://technologyquestions.com/technology/tablet-pc-averatec/2503-c3500-digitizer.html

Most tablet-capable programs use the Wintab32.dll interface. In more recent incarnations of pen-based computing, I discover that Wintab has been discarded in favor of wisptis.exe (Windows Ink Services). There is also a shift to HID-based devices exclusively.
