That's fantastic news!

Good luck with the legal issues. There's lawyers in that
swamp. Beware.

Re: A little help with FFMpeg and FFplay
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


@white

I have no idea what you're trying to accomplish. ...and why
you just don't use YT.rexx. Are you trying to do something
more than playing videos???

I can just type this in the CLI:

<path>/YT.rexx <YT URL> autoplay

I get an MPlayer or FFplay window (as needed) and it just plays.
No fuss, no muss.

No clue about your videos (I guess).... How about posting
them something somewhere Amiga-Friendly?

Good luck,

Re: Timberwolf working AGAIN !

@white

OK, now you seem to be talking about viewing videos... Not
sending out videos from a camera. hmmm...

Just install/configure YT.rexx, MPlayer and FFPlay *correctly*
and then run YT.rexx (either in shell or from most any Amiga
browser) and stream the video in MPlayer or FFPlay, as needed.

I think you need to clarify your understanding of what those
programs do... YT.rexx just decodes/decyphers the YT stream
URLs and MPLayer and FFPlay just stream/play the found streams.
No "conversion" is taking place, pre se.

Playing vids on peecee??? You're on your own.

Playing videos within an Amiga browser? AFAIK, Oddity has
occasionally been able to do it, but reliably or for any length
of time? Way more overhead and trouble than playing directly
in a video player, IMHO. Get the right tool for the job! ;)

Tip: Goggles "improved" YouTube again, so I think you have to
spoof in Oddity as an iPad (IIRC) to see anything.

Good luck,

Re: Timberwolf working AGAIN !

@white

I'm not sure what you're trying to do and what direct connection
it has to Timberworlf....

If you want to remotely view a local IP camera, if it provides
a simple connection (like in your video), you should just be
able to connect to the IP address & port # with MPLayer or
FFPlay and view away. I do with a number of cameras/apps at
home/work with my Amigas.

Of course there's the complexity of getting through your router
to provide access from the WAN (aka Internet). Each router is
different and you'll need some way to find your LAN's internet
IP address. That can be challenging!

To simplify that a bit, you should look into dynamic domain name
services. http://www.ddns.net is an example.

Good luck,

Re: Timberwolf working AGAIN !

Not too shy to talk


Hi guys,

I didn't think Timberwolf ever stopped working (at least from
a clean start **)... It's just that it has lost any ability to
do contemporary secure connections (https://, etc).

(**) FWIW, I did find that for TW to run somewhat reliably, you
should delete all the user "profile" stuff. So I added these
line to the start of the TW CLI startup script:

if exists CurrentUserProfile NOREQ
requestchoice "Timberworlf starting..." "Deleting old*nsession files." "Proceed"
delete CurrentUserProfile/#? all force
endif

I wonder how well TW would work if the new SSL code could be
compiled into the existing source.

Good luck,

Re: OS4.1 native find-tool

@Nielse

Interesting, walkero's spacebar trick seems to be working as described here... Great trick.

FWIW, I'm running Find v53.15. Any chance it's a version specific thing?

Maybe you need to be sure not to have MattyOS polluting your SYS:? ;D

Re: OS4.1 native find-tool
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Hi guys,

I wasn't able to find any docs on the AmigaOS Find program either,
but I think I have a solution for your goal to deselect all your
drives by default.

If you go into your SYS:System/ dir and run the Find program, you
can deselect all your drives and then use the "Save Settings" menu
item.

That will save the deselection of all the drives to the Find icon's
tooltypes. From there, anytime you call Find from within the
Workbench, the Find program will be run and you will only see the
current path selected and the rest of your volumes will be deselected.

FYI, when you save your Find settings, it will also save any paths
you add to the tooltypes. With a little AmigaOS fiddling that also
makes it easy to set up preconfigured searches of paths of interest.

In my case I wanted to have a pre-configured Find set up for
searching my Audio collection. So I made an alias of Find program
(named "FindAudio") with its own FindAudio.info file with the search
set up the way I wanted. Then I dragged my "FindAudio" into AmiDock
to give me quick, easy access to that search.

Hope that works for you!

Thanks,

Re: How to measure program execution time?
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Hey guys,

There's a built-in functionality in the Shell to record the
execution time of a preceding command. It's stored in an
environment variable and you can just run this after the
command in question:

echo $_runtime

Does that suffice?

Thanks,

Re: APPDIR: and its implicitly created "symbolic links"
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


@rjd324

I think you can just move the DEVS:DOSdrivers/APPDIR entry to
the SYS:Storage/DOSdrivers/ directory and reboot... et viola,
it's gone?

I agree with nbache, APPDIR: evolved into a reasonable solution
for most common user cases. Run something once and things then
just work for them the vast majority of the time.

Otherwise, using complete paths, assignments and so forth are
the easy solutions of pro-users for overriding control.

Good luck!

Re: anyone recommend a good partiton mirror/sync program
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Hi guys,

Just a word of caution.... Beware if the partition you are
trying to copy/mirror/sync has any links in it. Example: SYS:

I've come to find Denil's Backup program might or might not
correctly replicate links, depending on how they were originally
created (you can end up with links back to the original (gone?)
partition).

Looking at the readme, it looks like Chris' FolderSync2
explicitly ignores links (just doesn't create the linked
file?? just makes another file??).

I didn't see any mention of how links were handled in the docs
on BackUpCopy.

Good luck,

Re: Arexx question - putting the output of a DOS command into a variable
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Hey Davyw,

Ever the fan of doing things the longhand way, here's a chunk
of code I've used often. You can paste this in a text file and
test it in the CLI.

---
/* Ask User Choice & Print Out
*/
TitleBarTxt = 'Test Requester'
BodyTxt = 'Pick something!'
ButtonsTxt = '"Yes" "Umm" "No"'
ReqType = 'INFO'
cline = 'c:requestchoice "' || (TitleBarTxt) || '" "' || BodyTxt || '" ' || (ButtonsTxt) || ' TYPE ' || (ReqType) || ' TO T:response.txt'
address command cline
MyReturnCode = RC
if exists('T:response.txt') then
if open(ReqF,'T:response.txt','r') then do
pick = strip(readln(ReqF),'B','"')
bs = close(ReqF)
address command 'c:delete T:response.txt'
say 'response >' pick '<'
end
else
say 'Couldn''t open Requester output file'
---

[meh -- tabs were stripped -- imagine they're there ]

Of course this can be adapted to RequestString or RequestFile.
The RC/ReturnCode lets you see if the user cancelled the
requester in those cases, IIRC.

Good luck,

Re: What cases for the new ACube 460
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


@kas1e

Cool looking case picture (on the site).

Already having three "bog box" towered Amigas (XE, X1K & X5K),
my goal for the SAM(s) has always been to make them as small as
absolutely possible.

With this case & the 440 and a portable monitor, it's been a
great travel machine. It would just be nice to have the 460's
horsepower in the package... ;D

Thanks,

Re: What cases for the new ACube 460

@sailor @kas1e @rob

yeah, I expected if I was to try to reuse my old slim case,
I'd have to stick a 2 card 90-degree riser in the first slot
and skip using any others. Hopefully that lines up with the
backplane slots in the case.

I just don't know that risers work or not (like in the tabor).

Thanks,

What cases for the new ACube 460
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Hi All,

With ACube's progress on the 460 production restart, I've been wondering
what are the smallest cases that board would fit in. To some extent
this is a topic/questions for ACube. ;)

On their webpage they say the board is 21.6cm x 17cm ("Flex ATX"):

https://www.acube-systems.biz/index.php?page=hardware&pid=756

...and yet it sounds like it is smaller than what wiki says an ATX-Flex
board is (22.9cm x 19.1cm).

Notably, it sounds like it's only as deep at the SAM440ep Mini-ITX
boards (17cm x 17cm).

That makes me wonder if the new SAM board could fit in case the 440
fits, assuming there's room for the increased width?

My ideal goal would be to find if that board could fit in a wide case
I've already got my 440 in, but it would also require the 460 works
with a 90 degree 2-card riser (in the first slot):

https://apextechusa.com/products.asp?pID=158

Anyone have experience with slot riser cards in SAM 460's? Any
ideas whether my little scheme would work? It would be nice to upgrade
my 440 to its bigger brother! ;D

Otherwise, what sorts of cases are you thinking about for your new 460's?
Anything really small?

Thanks,

PJS

@number6

Thanks for coming and posting in Amigans.

We were missing your pot stirring, troll baiting, hypocritical
'your secrecy has served you so well' BS.

But your fanning the flames of conspiracy theories for the sake
of your giddy amusement is tireseome, discouraging and utterly
unproductive.

Maybe it's just too much?

Maybe you should go back to peddling your wares on AW?

Re: Sam460LE 1.10 Ghz Pre-Order!

Not too shy to talk


Hey guys,

I'm wondering about the form factor on this board...

This is really a question for ACube: Will this microATX
board fit in the Psile case the original SAM's shipped
in?

My Psile (from my 440) now has a retarded A1222 in it.
Seems like it might be a lot better putting in something
proven & functional than the crippled Tabor.

hmmm...

@Valiant

Hey Valiant,

FWIW, these settings have been working great in my ADRipper
(v1.13) for automatically downloading/populating CD info
these days:

protocol = CDDBP
server/port = gnudb.gnudb.org / 8880
query path = /~cddb/cddb.cgi
submit path = /~cddb/submit.cgi

Granted I don't know that submission ever works.

Good luck,

Re: Odyssey has become unstable!

@Gregor

I've long found that it's best to run oddity from a clean
install. It seems to collect a lot of debris each time
it runs.

To that end, I usually use a script that copy it to a
directory on the ram disk, run it there and then clean out
the detritus after it quits.

Good luck,

PJS
