Forcing a Chinese company to sell TikTok won’t solve the biggest problem with : the fact that so people get their “” from platforms that are designed to hijack attention for commercial gain, not to deliver reliable information.

If China wants information on Americans, it can buy data from companies since there are no effective laws.

And American-owned Facebook and X have shown themselves to be as bad or worse as TikTok at spreading .

@TheConversationUS This article is WOEFULLY behind the legislation - or ignoring major parts of it. The legislation PROHIBITS foreign governments - with which we have issue - to buy from data brokers. Also, we're not worried about them having data on us per se. We're worried about them using that data on a platform as huge as TikTok to manipulate our citizens!

Oooohhhhh v3.6 release notes:

"ARM64 NEON optimizations:- Several time-consuming C functions have been optimized for the targeted platform - aarch64. The overall performance increased by around 20%. SVE/SVE2 optimizations"

Thanks, y'all! I love it when codebases start coding to ARM64 NEON!

To all those v7 programmers/users out there: I am getting "[hevc @ 0x11ce08420] Unsupported film grain parameters. Ignoring film grain." on several of my 4k BluRay UHD rips.

I found the error in the FFMPEG code, but cannot tell if it is just telling me it THINKS there should be film grain in the stream, but it can't decode which it is or if there truly is a metadata error in my rip...

The code is in the reply as my server is limited to 400 chars.

Ideas?

This is driving me batty. It wasn't in v6...and I know the log file for x265 v3.6 says: "Film-Grain characteristics as a SEI message to support Film Grain Synthesis(FGS)" but surely if the BluRay didn't have the SEI msg this shouldn't be warning me...and if it did, and the FGS wasn't recognized, this is a bug in FFMPEG, right?

Thank heavens! I bought my M2 mini thinking they'd release an M3 soon...but I needed to replace a dying iMac 2019 retina.

Nice that I was right in buying in Feb instead of waiting! Having said that: Hell YES I'm upgrading to the M4 when I can!

I know the original book was NEVER written to be camp but this TV movie had such fun with an amazing cast that I've fallen in love with it all over again!

It's close-the-roads-we-wanna-make-money-from-a-marathon day at this morning. From 3:45am to 10:00-ish, World drive will be closed - AS WILL THE CONNECTING ROADS TO and !!

Many customers do not know they cannot get out via or ! I refuse to deal with it when Uber STILL makes us accept those fares, drive halfway there, only to be blocked by closed roads!

Staying home today!

Is it just me or is v7 way faster (on at least) when doing multiple things at once? (ie: noise reduction, , then )

I mean these used to take hours and hours on several of my Agatha Christie files (which need noise reduction, crop and encoding). These fly through now at about 30% time reduction per file. Not to mention about 15% smaller size (thanks x265 3.6.x update!)


@lisamelton

@jann@twit.social avatar

@mrblissett @lisamelton Yeah, but I didn't think it would be THIS kind of speed-up! It is gobsmacking! 😳

jann,
@jann@twit.social avatar

@mrblissett @lisamelton This was my video filter for denoise and crop…and WOW did it make a difference!

-filter:v "crop=iw:ih-44,nlmeans=3.0:7:5:3:3"

NLMeans used to SLOG through a 1080p. Now it's noticeably faster. We'll see how my other normal encodes handle it. ie: Crop but no nlmeans, just straight onto x265.

jann,
@jann@twit.social avatar

@mrblissett @lisamelton You'll notice an extremely high % savings in disk space.

Having said that, don't change your pipeline if you don't feel the need. x264 is fine for video at those resolutions. x265 really shines at 1080p and 4k…where 25% size difference means gigabytes of savings - and tvs that can see artifacts won't see them in 265. Way better quality if you give it the right settings (CRF of ~24-26). I save my best material (4k HDR10) at CRF of 20...and wow! It just pops!

jann,
@jann@twit.social avatar

@lisamelton Well, I'm just way happier it is appreciably faster on ARM64 - in the things I do… not just the functions I never use - which is how it normally ends up 🤷‍♂️. The capability to multithread is massively appreciated!

jann,
@jann@twit.social avatar

@lisamelton PS: Thankfully I have a Synology on which I stored the original file rips on so now I can go back and re-compress them to make them far nicer!

jann,
@jann@twit.social avatar

@lisamelton and ALWAYS run an annual check for bitrot - AND make sure you store on BTRFS - so you can recover! 😉
