i want to build a small form factor pc which will be used for media streaming/torrenting and couch gaming. eg i never actually want to touch this machine directly when it comes to managing torrents. is there a way to easily manage everything remotely? Ideally i'd be running steam big picture on top, with all the media stuff happening in the background. would also obviously be using windows.

Im interested in networking, I have read Kurose and Ross (still need the last 2 chapters, about network security and multimedia), what can i do next? I feel like i learned a lot but also like it was all very theoretical; so what can i do for practice and what related books/resources to get? For my networking project we just had to do a project with a server in python (and we had to do something simillar last semmester but in C for operating systems so..)

>> No.75826062

you can buy a usb ir dongle and map certain remote buttons to do certain things, like booting the machine or launching applications.
though since you want to torrent on it as wall (which is probably a bad idea, unless you don't care about noise since it's gonna be always on), there are certain clients like which have a pretty much out of the box web interface, like transmission, or you could setup a watch directory which you can share via network. when you drop a .torrent file in the watch dir it gets automatically added to the client.
biggest problem with torrent with it is probably gonna be storage though, since sff pcs typically don't have 3.5 bays, so you're probably better off using a different pc dedicated to storage, as well as running something like plex on it elsewhere.

I have only really tried it once, but you could go with the steam link or nvidia shield route. meaning, you build a normal pc and then have a little box at your tv which will connect to steam or does the nvidia streaming stuff. steamlink also allows you to stream your desktop and really do whatever remotely. I used it on a rpi3 which wasn't really that great, maybe a rpi4 (which now has gigabit ethernet + a better cpu) will work better though, so it's worth a look

>> No.75826282

problem is, dvds use a different codec/container than what you'd normally find on a pc, so you'd have to transcode it before burning.
you'll lose quality and since those programs typically use some standard transcode settings, it's gonna be even worse.
as for a good program to do this on windows? no clue

you could try creating a data disc and just burning the movie on it as is,
but your dvd player would need to be able to read from data discs (and when they can, they typically also have a usb slot, so there's no reason to put it on a disc in the first place)
another problem is the codec, though mp4 is pretty ubiquitous, so it should work if it can read data discs.

>> No.75826794

the 21 pin connector in that manual probably refers to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SCART
Modern video cards only offer digital outputs, but since the signal your TV requires is analogue you can't just snip the end of an HDMI cable and solder a SCART connector on.
You need an active box which translates between them and they typically only do it in one direction, so either HDMI to SCART, or SCART to HDMI.
Luckily there are some companies who still sell those, so just look on amazon for "HDMI to SCART".

Ok good info. I just looked up the manual for the DVD player. It can play mpeg2 files, but not mp3/wma files, which means it cannot play my mp4 file.

It provides a static public facing domain name for systems with a dynamic public facing IP.

It's hard to remember an IP address that keeps changing every time the lease renews.

DDNS services provide an easy to remember and cheap domain name that always point to your current public facing IP.

If you're not running a server or hosting anything you probably don't need one.

Keep in mind under some circumstances you don't want the same public facing IP pointing toward your equipment. It's harder to hit a moving target.

Hmm, just had an idea. The reason nvidia settings arent applying to your game might be that the game's not actually running at fullscreen. W10 has some kind of feature that runs all games at borderless (so that the game bar overlay and notifications and shit work)
You turn this off by going to the game's executable, right click properties, compatibility, disable fullscreen enhancements. Or something along those lines.
If it doesn't work maybe the game doesn't support true fullscreen at all (yes this is a thing with indie games usually).

Or, are you using a laptop? Maybe your game is running on your intel gpu instead of discrete nvidia one.

I've recently got a job where I have to make videos among other things and my company provided me a program Camtasia. It's been pretty simple to use for me, but when you use it on trial period it does insert its watermark, so you'd have to pirate or buy it.
I've also used Movavi Video Editor before, it was pretty simple too. Finally, I've heard the most robust and professional tool is Adobe Premier Pro. I tried it before, and had to abandon it because there was an issue with footage I already recorded, but its interface was pretty much the same too, so it must be intuitive enough as well.

People always say "unlocking your bootloader and rooting your phone leaves it less secure than stock" but they never elaborate on why. An attacker with physical access cannot install anything without wiping the whole thing clean because I always have full-disk encryption enabled. Theoretically a remote attacker could string together a chain of vulns and install a rootkit. This is the only plausible danger.
Is there something I'm missing here? It should be alright to root, use FDE, use a boot password, and ensure all apps run with limited permissions, right?

Should I switch from Gmail to a more private email provider, and how much of a hassle would it be to switch?

I've had this happen recently on multiple devices, including full screen corrupt on mobile.

I have a main router which gets Internet to its wan port. Then I had one of its lan ports connected to another router's lan. I turned off dhcp for the second and gave it a static address, and moved the dhcp range of the main router. Now when I do the same for a third router, I can get to the internet from any devices connected to either end routers.
What's going on here? I add another router and it knocks out the other one. I can't see any options to sound related and I can get to all three routers from any device

I mean "I can't get to the internet..."

Why does it take ages to pick up a prescription? Don't they just have to go grab your medicine from the back? It's not like they manufacture it at the pharmacy.

Need recommendations for a quality zip diskette to use as a live system/recovery drive. I got a bunch of cheapo drives from Amazon and have the Arch install ISO on one of them, but even after occasional use it's starting to fail on me.

It doesn't need to be big, maybe 8-16 GB, but should have a long life and good read/write speeds.

Anyway if you don't trust it just get youtube-dl.exe from their site.
Download ffmpeg.exe
And copy/paste this Inside a text file and save it as .bat.:
TITLE Youtube-dl for retards
youtube-dl %URL%
goto loop

Also there is youtube-dl GUI but it lacks some features.

I can't find a fix for this, somehow my windows search got fucked. It only does local search, not web search.

Might seem like a blessing but I used web search sometimes

No, but sometimes it'll go that low.

I don't think any browser would make modern websites any better when it comes to being memory hogs, especially youtube
if shit freezes or stutters for you when watching videos just using mpv + youtube-dl to watch them in an actual video player instead of youtube's shitty one

youtube is garbage and so are all modern browsers. even on my shitrig running old stuff it would easily balloon to about 900k as soon as i got on youtub's frontpag

That's your problem. Firefox was shit before version 56. Whole new deal now.

All USBs have bad write speeds, at best they get sustained 60MB/s but that is for the 128GB models.

Just use this:

In loonix, how does one measure up/down speeds for connections? I mean, conky does it somehow, that's lua. Speedtest-cli is slow, and gives max vals, rather than current.
iw, iwspy, iwpriv, and iw* don't have a speed option
ethtool shows speed only fire wired connections.

so people recommend FF now?

It's a huge pain in the ass to change browsers so should i really make the switch back to FF and NOTHING else?

>> No.75836867

Edge uses same pluggins as chrome. Chrome pluggins benifit from large userbase, but ff has a better selection of APIs that let you do more.

The particular housing setup that I have is very unusual. I would prefer to use ethernet otherwise, but that is not an option at this time.

At least on OnePlus phones it's settings -> system -> OTG storage. If you can't find a setting for it it probably is enabled by default.

I had a recovery install a long time ago, and since then about half my drive has been missing / taken up. I assume it's my old data, but I checked the usual /user/ places and I don't find anything there, is there other places I should look, or some things to do this. I haven't cared for a while because I have a big hard drive, but now it's starting to fill up.

btw i'm not talking about documents, those transferred over, as I told it to. I think it was mostly programs and games (windows said it would delete, but it seems it didn't in terms of space) that took up the most space that I can't find.
