Re: Added "Best of" page

They are great! Could you pls upload the SVG (or whatever vector format) for these so that I can update the years? Thanks! Check PM for details. A GIF (click to play) of how to edit the label and year in a text editor, as described in the PM: Example of how to hide or show the label and edit the ye...

Re: Added "Best of" page

Now if someone would sketch up an award sticker, I'm sure program devs would really appreciate that... I'm not sure how many devs utilize award graphics these days but here are some ideas for consideration. First being for the winner, the second among the nominees. Have them vectorized with editabl...

Just noticed a small thing: the 2017 entries all have a quote character at the end of their URLs. Doesn't seem to affect returning the page but thought I'd mention it.

Re: Added "Best of" page

Nice! Glad it shows also the list of contenders. Hopefully this prominence allows more users to become aware of it and take part next year.

Re: MakeMKV

That's the one you can change through the program's preferences in the general tab. Probably the other one is C:\Videos or something which is the output directory? It's definitely that same setting but for me it doesn't store that data there (also my video output directory is an entirely different ...

Can you tell me where is this directory on your drive?

Code: Select all

C:\Users\<username>\.MakeMKV
While the one I have in the settings is completely different (on a different drive, even).

Re: MakeMKV

Yes but you can change that directory from program's settings On my up to date install the 'data' directory defined in the settings is different from the directory being currently used by MakeMKV for its hashes, dumps and such. Read also a topic on the official forums which appeared to make the dis...

Re: MakeMKV

Great program. Status: Not portable - writes to HKCU\Software\MakeMKV and if you enable logging leaves a text file at User Profile From what I can tell even without enabling logging MakeMKV uses a fixed program data location in the User directory, where it stores hashes, dumps and such, while a sepa...

Re: CLI Database Discussions

Some thoughts following from Andrew's post. Clarifications appreciated. - From a UX point of view if we consider an entry that has an alias tag of 'convert gif to png' yet the user is looking to check image converters more broadly via a tag, would additional alias tags need to be added (eg 'convert ...

Re: Public directories/repos for command line tools (and suggestion for a secondary Portable Freeware database)

OK, that's my summary. Comments welcome! Reading this it seems the current form would mostly remain in-tact which seems a reasonable approach. The part I was concerned with all through is how most tagging implementatons tend to play out. The question of whether CLI programs even need categorization...

Re: youtube-dl - multi-site media/video downloader [mature, active updates]

youtube-dl does not get an update every day. From the changelog we can see that the most recent updates have been on January 1, January 15 and January 24. In other words, about every two weeks. You're correct. Became mixed up with ffmpeg, the Zeranoe builds of which I'd checked a couple days prior ...
