  2. Announcing VLC 2.1 Beta Release! Not so much activity on Play Store since v2.0.6 release. I’ve been quite busy but VLC keeps going on with very interesting evolutions! This post will only deal with features, not their implementation. I will later publish other posts, more interesting for developers, about it. Incoming features UX evolutions Presentation New Audio Player Style Dynamic UI Scrolling Updating content TV design 360° Videos support Search Android Auto Action mode Miscellaneous new features Under the hood MediaLibrary Playback performance & formats support Future 2.1.x version name will be used for beta only, we’ll decide later which version the stable release will be. To get it you need to join the beta program, and you’ll receive it like a normal update. For now, let me introduce you to the new VLC for Android. UX evolutions Presentation Video cards have been refactored, we now show you video informations over its cover picture. This is a nicer presentation and gives room for displaying more videos at once. Others lists view have been reworked too, like audio media, browsers and history. We got rid of cardview pattern, and got back to a more flat and clean design. Audio lists have been a bit lifted too but this change is lighter. Info page has also been redesigned with a fancy collapse effect for thumbnail or cover. New Audio Player Style Audio player background is now a blurred version of current art cover if available. Dynamic UI Scrolling The action bar will now hide when your scroll your media lists, to save the more useful space possible while you’re looking for your media. Album view has been revamped to become more #Material and now serves for playlists too Updating content Thanks to the DiffUtil tool from Appcompat library, grids/lists updates are now animated and more efficient. One disturbing side effect is when you refresh and there’s no change in your media library. You won’t see any update, not even any flickering. But the cool thing is whith actual content update, like during media scan or filtering the current view with the new search UX, insertions/deletions and position changes are animated: TV design TV interface had its own lifting too, nothing really impressive here. Colors are less depressive and we make long media titles scroll, I heard your (justified) frustration The interesting new feature on TV is the Picture-In-Picture (aka PIP) mode, available for all Android TVs powered by Android 7+. It’s really like our popup mode in classic phone/tablet interface (so we used the very same icon in video advanced options for PIP). You can still watch your video while using another application. 360° Videos support VLC now supports 360° videos, you can change viewpoint by swiping or with remote control arrows. Cardboard/VR mode is not available yet but we are working on it. Search Search has been splitted in two modes: First step, the text you type in triggers a filtering in the current view. Exaclty like in current playlist view. Then, if you want to do a global search, click on the SEARCH IN ALL MEDIALIBRARY button to show the new search activity. Which will bring detailed results grouped by video/artist/album/songs/genres/playlist Bonus: VLC will now be compatible with voice search. Asking Google Now “Search game in VLC” will trigger a game search and show you this new search result screen. Android Auto This release will bring Android Auto compatibility. You’ll be able to use VLC as your travel music player with easy browsing into you audio library, with the minimum possible distraction from driving. Action mode You can now select multiple items by long press on them (classic context menu is still available with the three dots icon) and enjoy actions like play it all or add selection to playlist Actions available depend on media type and selection count. This is very handy for starting or creating a playlist. Miscellaneous new features DayNight mode integration Restored double/long click on remote play to skip songs Removed sound lowering on notification Force previous song on audioplayer swipe Fix audioplayer layout for black theme and RTL Save subtitles delay and optionally audio delay for each file. Support for LG devices with 18:9 aspect ratio Under the hood MediaLibrary That’s the most important change in this update, because it affects the whole application, but you should barely notice it… VLC now uses medialibrary like VLC for Tizen, others VLC ports will follow. It’s a C++ library, written by Hugo Beauzée-Luyssen, which parses storages for video/audio files and manages a sqlite database to model your media library (with album, artist, genre classification, etc..). It replaces the old system we had on Android which just saved media files with their metadata, we had no proper structure for media library. So these categories listing are now faster, we don’t have to generate categories at runtime. And this is all native code, which is faster than Java. Beside this speed improvement, one of the main benefits of this medialibrary is to provide better search results For now we are focusing on the first scan performance to make it at least as fast as the previous system. So, this library is aimed to be a common module of all VLC ports, wich means all debugging, performance and any improvement will benefit other platforms. Next steps for this library will be media scrapping, and network scan: Medialibrary will get informations and illustrations for your media, so we’ll be able to present you a nice collection, and not files list anymore. We will also group media by shows/seasons et genre/release year/whatever You will be able to scan your NAS content to access your media easily. Playback performance & formats support VLC core team worked hard too to bring performance improvements and some new features. Here are some highlights: 360° videos support Adaptive (HLS/Dash) & TS playback improved OpenGLES 2.0 is now used to render video (for software decoders & mediacodec) Support for VP8/9/10 in MP4 e-AC3 HDMI passthrough Future We also plan to implement a feature to download media on your device, in order to sync your series episodes or songs from your NAS to your device. We’d like to support videos playlists like we do with videos grouped by their common name prefix. As previously stated, medialibrary will allow to make VLC a real media center with fancy movies/tv shows presentation, and better artists/albums illustrations. At last, I started an extension API in order for everyone to develop android applications which will provide content to VLC. For example, we will release (with sources of course) extensions bringing support of podcasts subscriptions and Google Drive access.

  3. Twitch Leecher is a free program for Microsoft Windows devices to download public or subscriber-only recorded videos from Twitch.tv. Amazon has big plans for Twitch.tv, a game streaming service that enables anyone to stream or watch games. The company announced Twitch Prime recently for instance which provides Amazon Prime subscribers with ad-free streams, extras such as in-game items for various games, and an option to subscribe to a channel for free (while the channel still gets the money). You may open the list of previously recorded videos on Twitch.tv at any time to play those again, provided that they have been made available. These videos can be watched online, but not downloaded to the local system for offline viewing. That's where a program like Twitch Leecher comes into play. Twitch Leecher Twitch Leecher is a free program for Windows to download recorded Twitch.tv streams. Note: The program requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 or higher. All you need to do is install the program on a Windows machine and start it up afterwards. A click on search lists options to find video recordings based on a channel name, URLs or IDs. The channel search option offers additional preferences. You may switch between broadcast and highlight video types, and set a limit for the number of recordings that are returned. While there is no option to set that number to unlimited, you may set it to 1000 recordings which is a lot. Please note that search will only return public recordings by default. Twitch Leecher supports subscription-only videos, but you need to authorize the program first using your Twitch account. Hit the search button again to get a listing of recordings by that channel. Each recording is listed with its name, game name, length of recording, date and time, and quality. A click on the download icon opens a download video configuration screen. You may keep all options as they are, or modify the following ones: Change the video quality. One interesting option there is to select audio only which some may find useful. Change the target folder and file name. Crop the video. There is no indication about the size of the video file as well. Downloads Downloads are added to the built-in download manager. It highlights the progress of each download that you have started, and provides you with options to cancel downloads or view the log. There does not seem to be an option to pause downloads, or change the download transfer rate though. A progress bar is displayed for each download, but there is no information on how long each individual download will take before it completes. Twitch Leecher downloads one recording at a time only, with no option to change the limit. Downloads can be quite large. A sample download of a four hour recording in 1280x720 quality downloaded a 7.6 Gigabyte video file for instance to the local system. The preferences list a couple of options that may help you speed things up when using the application. You may set a default video quality, file name, and download folder there, change the number of results search returns, or enter a default channel name. Closing Words Twitch Leecher is a handy program for all Twitch.tv downloading needs. The program is easy to use and supports public and subscriber-only recordings. It could do with a handful of extra preferences and controls such as options to pause downloads, list the video file size before adding it to the download queue, or changing the number of simultaneous file downloads.

  5. Might seem odd what I am about to write. I was working at my P.C. and I had in the background a T.V. show my son was watching, he went off and then some U.S.A. soaps came on this is on bskyb BritishSkyBroadcasting a.k.a Sky. So my question is, why is it all the women in it are pretty fit (attractive) all the men have gym six-packs, they all live in massive houses, drive expensive sports cars, have expensive furnishings, but none of them work. They also have the latest video consoles, T.V's and cell-phones and all eat out. Is this how everyone in the U.S.A. lives and exists? I thinks not. The program/soap I think was call Melissa and Joe, but it seems all current U.S.A. soaps are the same.
  6. A Resource-Friendly Way To Stream Twitch.tv Content Livestreamer Twitch GUI is a graphical user interface for the popular Livestreamer application which sends media streams to the default video player on the system. Twitch.tv is a popular destination to watch live streams of various video game and related broadcasts. Most Internet users tune in using a web browser, and that is working fine most of the time. Twitch used to use Flash exclusively on the site but has since then started to integrate HTML5 video streams on the site as well. Regardless of that, you may notice that the Twitch browser client can be quite the resource hog. While you may be able to adjust some settings, quality of stream for instance, to reduce its resource hunger, you may prefer a better way of streaming Twitch streams that don't tax the computer as much. Livestreamer Twitch GUI Livestreamer Twitch GUI is a graphical user interface for the popular Livestreamer application. We reviewed Livestreamer before here on Ghacks. It is a command line application to watch Internet streams in your favorite media player on the computer. Livestreamer Twitch GUI makes things more comfortable by adding an interface to the whole process. You need to configure the program before you may use it. First of all, it is required to download it and Livestreamer to the system. Livestreamer is available for Windows and as source code, Livestreamer Twitch GUI for Windows, Mac and Linux. Once you have both on your system, you may want to check the settings to make sure everything is set up correctly. The frontend reminds you if something is amiss when you start to play a video as well. The preferences are quite extensive. I suggest you enable the advanced settings and features preferences at the top to display even more. Preferences While there are lots of preferences displayed on the page, the following ones may be of interest to the majority of users: Set the preferred stream quality. It is set to source by default, but you may change it to a desired quality. This is interesting if your Internet connection is slow or unreliable, or if you prefer maximum quality all the time. Livestreamer lists several parameters including the path to the livestreamer.exe executable, but also stream type and parameters. Videoplayer sets the media player that Livestreamer Twitch GUI will load the stream in. If you leave it blank, the default player will be used. Control various GUI related preferences. Change the theme from light to dark, enable or disable OS integration, and set refresh rates (off by default). Filter streams by language. You may remove broadcaster languages to filter out streams. Configure desktop notifications, for instance when favorites are streaming. Make sure you hit the apply button at the bottom of the page after you are done. The application displays a prompt if you miss it though. Browsing Twitch Livestreamer Twitch GUI lists several options to browse streaming channels on Twitch. You may use the featured, top games or top channels listings for instance, or use the search at the top for that to find specific streams. The account-specific section requires that you sign in to a Twitch account. You may then access your subscriptions, live streams, hosted streams, and favorites using the program as well. Once you have found a stream that you want to watch, you may simply click on it to start the process. If things are set up correctly, the stream opens in the default media player automatically. Livestreamer Twitch GUI displays options in its interface while the stream is playing in the main media player. Since the stream is displayed in the media player, you won't get access to the chat for instance or other controls while using it. That's why an option to launch the chat is displayed by the program. You also find options to change the stream quality, and even stream only the audio. Closing Words If you run into resource woes regularly when streaming Twitch content, you may want to give Livestreamer Twitch GUI a try. While it requires an initial setup to get everything going, it is not overly complicated and a one-time process only. Source

  17. TV shows you can taste, smell, and touch. Imagine a party on a warm summer's evening. You can see the beautiful greenery and the dipping sun, you can smell the freshly cut grass and taste the cool drinks on offer. You hear someone walk up behind you and feel them tap you on the shoulder. Now imagine you're not really at the party – but sitting at home and the scene and all these sensations are coming from your TV. Working out how television programmes could one day stimulate all our senses is an interesting question for researchers like myself, who are exploring the future of TV. But the bigger, more exciting challenge is how we can not only imitate what is happening on the screen, but also use smell, taste and touch in a way that's not a novelty and enhances the emotional experience of a show, just as a soundtrack does. There's good reason to think about how the TV industry can innovate in this way. Despite the rise of online video, millions if not billions of people still watch traditional broadcast media through television sets. TV remains a powerful format for programme making and watching that follows specific restrictions and guidelines. But more people are watching TV programmes online after their original broadcast, on other devices such as tablets and phones, are even using multiple screens to engage with more than one piece of content at once. Broadcasters need to create new ways of experiencing TV that capture the audience's full attention and immerse them in a multisensory world. Experimenting with the senses Creating truly compelling TV that stimulates all our senses is not an easy task. Programme makers and technology manufacturers know how to design their products so you can see depth and distance on the screen. But sound and vision aren't always enough. Being able to smell the odours that a character on screen would smell, or feel the objects or atmosphere they would feel, can create anticipation and build suspense in the same way as sound currently does. Cinema is already experimenting with these extra senses. Films with touch and smell sensations can be experienced in newly equipped 4DX cinemas, such as the one in Milton Keynes in the UK. The sense of taste seems a final frontier for technology development, but the interest in taste experiences has started to take off. For example, audience members at Edible Cinema each receive a package of food and drinks to match what characters on screen experience. The question for the TV industry is what multisensory experiences should it design for – and how. My Sussex Computer Human Interaction lab is trying to better understand how we use our senses so that designers and developers can help us interact with their technology in the most compelling way possible. Our latest work focuses on cutting edge technology such as the mid-air touch feedback or 'haptic' device developed by Ultrahaptics, a start-up in Bristol. We're looking at how this technology could evoke emotions in the audience by allowing them to feel physical sensations without touching actual objects. For example, projecting a pattern of ultrasound beams onto your hand can create different tactile sensations, such as a feeling of raindrops on your palm (without the water), or a flow of air as if you were holding your hand out of the window of a moving car. When carefully designed, this haptic feedback can produce even more specific patterns that allow you to feel different shapes, that change in size or that quickly move around. Emotional feedback By experimenting with different shapes, we've studied how this kind of haptic feedback can produce different emotions. We found that short, sharp bursts of air to the area around the thumb, index finger, and middle part of the palm generate excitement. Slow and moderate stimulation of the outer palm and the area around the little finger create sad feelings. This gives us a starting point to find out how mid-air touch sensations could be meaningfully integrated into other experiences, such as watching a movie. One challenge will be to make haptic feedback enhance the viewing experience without seeming intrusive or creepy, as suggested by 'the feelies' cinema experience portrayed in the dystopian novel Brave New World. We've recently began a five-year project to expand the research into taste and smell, as well as touch. The SenseX project will aim to provide guidelines and tools on how to design and integrate sensory stimuli for inventors and innovators to create richer interactive experiences. Relatively soon, we may be able to realise truly compelling and multi-faceted media experiences, such as 9-dimensional TV (adding tastes on top of 4DX), that evoke emotions through all our senses. http://www.sciencealert.com/the-future-of-tv-how-feely-vision-could-tickle-all-our-senses

  19. Microsoft’s Movies & TV app for Windows 10 has finally received dark mode in the latest app update, available right now in the Windows Store. In this particular app update, Microsoft has added a new “dark” mode, giving you the option to darken your app or stick with the traditional light mode. To change your settings, just open the app and hit the Settings cog. You will see the option to change between light and dark mode — a restart of the app will be required. Microsoft has also added additional keyboard shortcuts to make your playback experience better. The company did not clarify exactly what the keyboard shortcuts were — thanks Microsoft, guess we’ll figure it out on our own. Grab the update right now from the Windows Store. News source
  20. Privacy advocates warn feds about surreptitious cross-device tracking 1939, back when ads used to be safe. Privacy advocates are warning federal authorities of a new threat that uses inaudible, high-frequency sounds to surreptitiously track a person's online behavior across a range of devices, including phones, TVs, tablets, and computers. The ultrasonic pitches are embedded into TV commercials or are played when a user encounters an ad displayed in a computer browser. While the sound can't be heard by the human ear, nearby tablets and smartphones can detect it. When they do, browser cookies can now pair a single user to multiple devices and keep track of what TV commercials the person sees, how long the person watches the ads, and whether the person acts on the ads by doing a Web search or buying a product. Cross-device tracking raises important privacy concerns, the Center for Democracy and Technology wrote in recently filed comments to the Federal Trade Commission. The FTC has scheduled a workshop on Monday to discuss the technology. Often, people use as many as five connected devices throughout a given day—a phone, computer, tablet, wearable health device, and an RFID-enabled access fob. Until now, there hasn't been an easy way to track activity on one and tie it to another. "As a person goes about her business, her activity on each device generates different data streams about her preferences and behavior that are siloed in these devices and services that mediate them," CDT officials wrote. "Cross-device tracking allows marketers to combine these streams by linking them to the same individual, enhancing the granularity of what they know about that person." The officials said that companies with names including SilverPush, Drawbridge, and Flurry are working on ways to pair a given user to specific devices. Adobe is developing similar technologies. Without a doubt, the most concerning of the companies the CDT mentioned is San Francisco-based SilverPush. CDT officials wrote: SilverPush's ultrasonic cross-device tracking was publicly reported as long ago as July 2014. More recently, the company received a new round of publicity when it obtained $1.25 million in venture capital. The CDT letter appears to be the first time the privacy-invading potential of the company's product has been discussed in detail. SilverPush officials didn't respond to e-mail seeking comment for this article. Cross-device tracking already in use The CDT letter went on to cite articles reporting that cross-device tracking has been put to use by more than a dozen marketing companies. The technology, which is typically not disclosed and can't be opted out of, makes it possible for marketers to assemble a shockingly detailed snapshot of the person being tracked. "For example, a company could see that a user searched for sexually transmitted disease (STD) symptoms on her personal computer, looked up directions to a Planned Parenthood on her phone, visits a pharmacy, then returned to her apartment," the letter stated. "While previously the various components of this journey would be scattered among several services, cross-device tracking allows companies to infer that the user received treatment for an STD. The combination of information across devices not only creates serious privacy concerns, but also allows for companies to make incorrect and possibly harmful assumptions about individuals." Use of ultrasonic sounds to track users has some resemblance to badBIOS, a piece of malware that a security researcher said used inaudible sounds to bridge air-gapped computers. No one has ever proven badBIOS exists, but the use of the high-frequency sounds to track users underscores the viability of the concept. Now that SilverPush and others are using the technology, it's probably inevitable that it will remain in use in some form. But right now, there are no easy ways for average people to know if they're being tracked by it and to opt out if they object. Federal officials should strongly consider changing that. News source

  22. After escaping from the planet Krypton years ago, 24-year-old Kara Zor-El is embracing her superhuman abilities. Better known as Supergirl, her latest adventures were to be showcased in a CBS pilot scheduled to air this coming November. This morning and six months early, the much-anticipated pilot leaked online. After making an appearance as far back as 1958, Supergirl was intended to be a female counterpart to DC Comics’ Superman who first appeared 20 years earlier. While successful in her own right, she never quite reached the dizzy heights of the Clark Kent-based character. This yeah, however, the world is braced for the return of Supergirl in a new CBS TV series. Featuring Melissa Benoist (Glee, Homeland, Law and Order) as Kara Zor-El, an alien who has hidden her powers since escaping from Krypton, the show will see her transform into Supergirl and “the superhero she was meant to be.” After a commitment in September 2014, the series was officially picked up by CBS earlier this month. The pilot was scheduled to debut in November, but those plans have now massively unraveled after the episode leaked online, six months earlier than its planned debut. Two ‘Scene’ release groups – DiMENSiON and LOL – competed to premiere the title first this morning, with the latter beating the former by around 90 seconds. LOL’s version is a convenient 400mb so likely to become the most sought after copy. On the other hand DiMENSiON’s is more than 15 times the size, but for 1080p connoisseurs it’ll be worth the wait. Although it’s certainly possible that the pilot contains hidden watermarks, as far as visible identifiers go the 46 minute episode looks very clean. As illustrated by the image below, there are no tell-tale ‘property of’ warnings that are regularly seen on ‘screener’ copies of leaked movies. The leak of the pilot came as a complete surprise a couple of hours ago so download stats on BitTorrent sites are a currently quite modest 25,000 or so. However, given the anticipated media snowball effect during the day the number of downloads is likely to increase dramatically, probably to more than a quarter million by this time tomorrow. The Supergirl leak comes just weeks after the first four episodes of the new series of Game of Thrones leaked online. That event triggered a piracy crazy that continues to this day. Whether more episodes of Supergirl will leak online in the days to come is unknown but in any event it seems likely that CBS will try to stem the current tide. The company is a prolific sender of DMCA takedown notices and regularly sends more than 100,000 each week to Google alone. Update: Another pilot has leaked, this time of the forthcoming NBC TV series ‘Crowded‘. Leaked by the same groups (LOL and DiMENSiON, which are connected) it is available in qualities up to 1080p. It runs for 22 minutes. Supergirl trailer Source: TorrentFreak
  23. Ultra-colorful quantum dot displays aren't quite ubiquitous yet, but that could change soon. Taiwanese optics company, QD Vision, has introduced a new piece of quantum dot optics, which could allow for LCD monitors and all-in-one PCs with better color than we've ever seen. QD Vision's updated Color IQ tech uses 2mm-thin optics, which, compared to the previous standard of 3mm, will allow quantum dot to come to screens that are smaller than the one in your living room TV. Color IQ can currently be found on select TVs from companies such as Sony and TCL. A new buzzword, quantum dot is a technology that allows for full-gamut color. Quantum dot displays use unique nano-crystals to emit precise colors, which according to QD Vision, can be almost twice as rich and lifelike as what you'd see on the average LED TV. QD Vision also claims that quantum dot TVs are cheaper to produce than OLED sets. Although this new tech continues to wage war on the LED television, it could impact other, smaller products such as your computer screen. Quantum dot's wide color gamut (which QD Vision says includes roughly 1 million colors) could allow for more immersive gaming monitors, and could turn your next all-in-one PC into a rich entertainment station. While we don't know exactly when we'll see quantum dot come to smaller displays, we're certainly intrigued. If quantum dot technology is in fact cheaper and more colorful than OLEDs, it might only be a matter of time before the technology becomes a household name. discovery.com
  24. I am (so is my Suzie and two off spring) huge fans of Big Bang Theory. In the U.K. we get the programmes on T.V. later than the U.S.A. This week (Thursday) on 136 satellite, bskyb was the episode which was upsetting. Howards mother died. My Suzie cried, I nearly did too, she was a great mother, the mother I always wanted. So I opened this thread to pay homage to the actress that died from cancer aged 62 Carol Ann Susi. The show will not be the same without her.
