Video Contact Sheet *NIX 1.13.2, published on

Image of Video Contact Sheet *NIX 1.13.2
Video Contact Sheet *NIX creates a contact sheet (preview) from videos by taking still captures distributed over the length of the video. The output image contains useful information on the video such as codecs, file size, screen size, frame rate, and length. It requires MPlayer or FFmpeg and ImageMagick. It is confirmed to work on Linux and FreeBSD, and possibly other POSIX/UNIX systems.

Release Notes: * BUGFIX: Fixed number of captures exceeded by one with mplayer [#225] Reported by Miya * OTHER: (BUGFIX in prereleases) Fixed error when processing files with quotes in the file name [#226]

Platforms: POSIX // Bash

mp3plot 0.6.0 , published on

Image of mp3plot 0.6.0
mp3plot creates a plot (textual or graphical) of the bitrate distribution of an MP3 file. It displays which proportion of the audio file uses each of the possible bitrates. The plot can serve, for example, to compare an audio source as encoded by different encoders or settings or to display how the chosen (average) bitrate was achieved by the encoder.

Release Notes: * Features: - Preliminary support for MPEG-2 and Layers I and II, and display of warnings were support is flakey. - Print the length in seconds in the console plot. * Bugfixes: - Fixed detection of sampling rate. Previous versions were incorrect though only for sampling rates other than 44.1kHz - Avoid looping over the file in free-form bitstreams and out-of-specs frequencies. Broken files could produce either error too. - Fixed CRC detection (it was reported reversed) * Other: - Display warnings for more types of files that will probably confuse the program. - Warn of files that might be not really mp3s - MS Windows project Visual C++ project files and configuration script

Platforms: POSIX, Windows

Image of nautilus-follow-symlink 1.2.0
nautilus-follow-symlink is a nautilus extension that adds a context menu entry to nautilus on symbolic links pointing to directories, which once clicked opens the pointed directory (the real path) in a window. It does so both when right clicking on the folder icon or on the contents of an opened symbolic link.

Release Notes: * Added compatibility with Caja * Bugfix: - Correctly escape resolved paths * Compatibility: - GNOME3 support tested Builds in either GNOME2 or GNOME3 correctly - Fixed weird compilation error seen on Fedora 17 * Packaging: - Added for easy re-generation of configure scripts in case the default ones are problematic - RPM: Support both GNOME2 and GNOME3 installations * Other: - Added libtool workaround to reduce the number of libraries linked against

Platforms: POSIX // Gnome

Unofficial Ruby version of VCS
For anyone interested, Thomas has contacted me to let me know he wrote a "Video Contact Sheet Ruby" which reuses part of VCS' code and outputs contact sheets in the same style. Being written in Ruby, its code will be less of a mess and, even more interestingly, it can run on Windows with less […]
Nubeox en Linux
En este post explico cómo he conseguido reproducir contenidos de Nubeox Premium protegidos con DRM en Linux. El mismo método debería servir para otros servicios problemáticos basados en Flash, como Wuaki o TotalChannel aunque no lo he probado. Como tantas otras veces, el Wiki de Arch Linux ha sido de lo más útil. El problema […]
Relevation 1.3 released
I've just published an updated version of Relevation. The main addition is support for the newer format of data files used by Revelation, plus a slightly better handling of international characters in the data file. This is, however, a somewhat rushed and unpolished release to support the newer file format as soon as ready. As […]
VCS 1.13.2 released
A new update of VCS with a couple bugfixes is available to download. Once again, if you had problems with the previous versions there's nothing new. It fixes a bug when using MPlayer as capturer that could produce one more capture than expected. Thanks to Miya for reporting it. See the full changelog for more […]
VCS 1.13.1 released
Next release (1.13.2) announcement A minor update of vcs is available to download. In short, if you don't use Arch and you had no problems running it there's no need to update. It fixes an uncommon bug and updates the build script for Arch Linux. Thanks to Eris Belew for reporting these. See the full […]

Pipelight: Silverlight en Linux
¡Por fin! Una solución para poder usar sitios que requieren Silverlight en Linux sin problema (en la mayoría de casos, al menos). Hace tiempo que Moonlight está abandonado, muerto y enterrado. Moonlight era el engendro de Novell y Microsoft que implementaba Silverlight (pero no todo) en Linux, y que nunca fué una solución demasiado buena. […]
