Wallpaper of the Week: Red Forest Glade With Stones 2 months 3 days ago rhiannon

I'm glad you like it. I had the forest one on my monitor a while back. I didn't remember where I found it, so I had to go looking. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Best Free Media Center Software 2 months 3 days ago ctwist

I tried a few media servers, running on Windows 10. I didn't test in great detail; I stopped testing each app when I found a problem that disqualified it. This is a summary of my findings.

I have two TVs
- A 2012 LG LM6700 smart TV. This uses the NetCast O/S, which is not used in post-2013 models.
- A basic Insignia TV. A connected Sony UBP-X700 Blu-Ray player (this is a current model) provides smart TV functions.
- Neither TV supports 4K.
- They use DLNA to communicate with the PC.

These are the products that I tried:

1) Kodi
I agree with the reviewer's comment "sub-optimal mouse support". This was very frustrating. I couldn't even find a way to minimize or close it! I used alt-tab to get out of it.
This problem was sufficient to eliminate it.

2) Plex
- With DLNA enabled in the media server settings, this worked with the Sony but not with the LG. This is because Plex disabled support for the obsolete NetCast O/S in 2020-09 https://forums.plex.tv/t/plex-support-is-ending-2020-09-30-on-older-smart-tv-devices/629707. I downloaded version 1.20.1 from https://www.videohelp.com/software/Plex/old-versions; this is the final version that is compatible with NetCast. It worked well.
- Alternatively, Plex uses a proprietary non-DLNA streaming service. This requires a Plex client app, which is not available for my TVs.

3) Universal Media Server
A user suggested this in an earlier comment. It has poor playback; it stutters about every 3 seconds. Avoid it.

4) Windows Media Player
- In "Network and Sharing Centre", open "Media streaming options". Allow the TV to connect.
- Problem: In the WMP options, I disabled "Add video files found in the Pictures library". This excluded the unneeded video clips in my vacation picture albums from the Video library. In WMP on the PC, these videos were no longer shown, but they were shown on the TV.
- WMP cannot run in the background, so it appears in the Windows task bar. Make sure you don't close it while it is streaming.
- Otherwise, WMP works well.

5) LG SmartShare
https://www.lg.com/ca_en/support/product-help/CT20098005-20150117958868
- This is intended for LG TVs, but it also worked on my Sony. Its licence does not restrict its use with non-LG products.
- This is simple and accomplishes what I need.
- When installing it, if your PC has a lot of media content, there will be a looooong pause with a black screen while thumbnails are generated. Be patient.

Conclusion:
- The two winners are Plex and SmartShare. Plex has more features, but SmartShare has a simpler interface.
- My preference is SmartShare.

I tried it out on a couple of JPG photos I had taken. It's the easiest to use of any program I've ever seen, and it's fast. It reduced the file size of both by a little over 40% with no noticeable loss of quality. As a bonus it even improved the color on a couple of spots that were too red! I plan to use it on all the photos I want to reduce for email and storage. Thanks Rhiannon, good find!

I've used several jpg utilities to reduce the size of these images to make them easier to include in emails but none can compare to "PhotoResize400". http://www.rw-designer.com/picture-resize. No installation required - simple save the exe file where you can drag your jpg images on top of it and let go. It saves a hugely reduced jpg image in the same folder at the original with the size that was set by renaming PhotoResize. It takes 3Mb files from my camera and turns them into 50k files that always look perfect. I've never found anything that works better.

Xodo 2 months 2 weeks ago crombierob

If it is only available from the windows Store, then I am not interested.
I suppose I am a 'control freak' in so far as I don't like being told what I can, and cannot do, on my computer.
EG I believe 'Windows S' only allows 'apps' from the Windows Store ?
If that is true, and MS offered me a free new laptop, that can only use programs (aka 'apps' AGH!) from the Windows Store, I would tell them to keep the laptop.
I consider 'Windows S' to be a crippled OS

Something I like a lot about POPFile is that I am not restricted to two buckets (Spam and NotSpam). I can set up as many buckets as I want and, given sufficient training, POPFile will assign messages to them. I haven't seen this mentioned in connection with any other Bayesian programs.

POPFile 2 months 2 weeks ago rfajman

I've been using POPFile for many years;, first with POP, and in the last few years with IMAP. My email client is Thunderbird.

I just ran into a problem with POPFile not classifying any messages and, instead, putting hundreds of messages like this into its log:

IO::Socket::INET or IO::Socket::SSL gets an error: IO::Socket::SSL: SSL connect attempt failed because of handshake problems SSL wants a read first

I talked to my email provider and they told me that they had just dropped support for older SSL and TLS releases that are considered to have security flaws. My guess is that POPFile uses one of these obsolete SSL/TLS protocols.

Removing the use of SSL/TLS makes everything work again, but in that configuration, the email password and the email message itself are transmitted over the network in the clear.

Development of POPFile seems to have stopped years ago. I couldn't figure out how to leave a message in the support forum.

Shotcut 2 months 3 weeks ago ctwist

I switched to Shotcut recently, after my "free" version of VideoPad became trialware and refused to export the video. This really should be removed from the list of recommended video editors.

The review of Shotcut and the previous comment both refer to difficulties with the interface. I experienced no such problems, and I am not an expert. Before trying Shotcut, watch its 15 minute beginner's tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JtsB2iZRb9c . Keep this open while you edit your first video, so that you can refer to it to see exactly how things are done. I was productive after 1 hour! I consider this to be a short learning curve.

Shotcut is updated regularly. The review is based on version 18.0.3. The current version is 20.11.28. The list of changes is at https://shotcut.org/blog/ . Look at the first 6 pages of changes since 18.0.3; there have been MANY improvements.

I did have one temporary problem. An underwater video was accidentally recorded vertically. I did find some tutorials about how to convert to horizontal, but these all referred to an old “rotate” filter, before it was combined with the resize filter. To accomplish this: change Video Mode from Default to “HD 1080p 29.97fps”, select the “Size, Position & Rotate” filter, set the vertical size to 1920 (i.e. the size before rotating), set rotation to -90, Export Video. Simple!

I have decided to stick with Shotcut.
