01:18:05BigBambiWithin Rockboy the touch wheel is used as a touchpad. It is split into 8 segments that when tapped correspond to 8 buttons such as Up, Diagonal Up and Left, Left, and so on.

05:45:57FuriousGeorgehey all
05:46:47FuriousGeorgefollowing the guide here. at the bottom it describes how to encode in linux for my sansa using ffmpeg
05:47:13FuriousGeorgeffmpeg -i infile.avi -s 220x176 -vcodec mpeg2video -ar 44100 -acodec mp3 outfile.mpeg
05:47:41FuriousGeorgethis works, except that the aspect ratio is not preserved, so if the video isnt 3x4, it will stretch it vertically
05:48:40FuriousGeorgeunlike the rockbox windows encoder, which will not touch the aspect ratio. it will letterbox the video on my tiny screen, which is not terrible, but i was actually hoping to scale it when the video was wider than my screen, and crop the sides
05:49:49MU{lappy}you might do better w/ avidemux or mplayer for that, since you can fairly easily set up video filters to scale/crop etc to get your video as you like
05:50:01MU{lappy}i don't know a way to crop w/ ffmpeg.. which is not to say that there isn't one :D

05:58:12FuriousGeorgeMU{lappy}: never tried before. lemme see about that
06:05:53MU{lappy}avidemux has a gui, if you want to go that route. mencoder is pretty much CLI-only, although there are tools to provide a GUI to set up options
06:10:40FuriousGeorgeMU{lappy}: you know, i think i figured out the problem (im obviously no expert). my video is one resolution, my display is another. i can tell any encoder to make this file into a 220x176 version of itself, and it will, but of course it will be skewed.. iow, it's not gonna crop off the video...
06:11:02FuriousGeorgei just gotta cross multiply, encode it in the right resolution, then figure out how to scale it with any old encoder
06:11:52FuriousGeorgefor instance this one video is 608x336
06:12:52FuriousGeorgeso i would have to go 220x121 (or so) to preserve the ratio
06:18:08MU{lappy}right, but you *want* it cropped to fill the screen, right? or maybe i didn't understand?

06:48:33FuriousGeorgeim skipping frames all over the place and who knows why
06:54:11MU{lappy}hrm. what's the source, and did you specify a framerate for the output?
06:55:52MU{lappy}i *still* hit trouble w/ mencoder, and i've been using it for a good number of years now. framerates tend to be a common source of trouble, especially in MPEG sources where the source framerate may vary
07:05:56 Quit Mario_372 (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
07:07:08FuriousGeorgeMU{lappy}: frame skipping is b/c new mencoder does 29 fps instead of 29.997 so every second a frame is skipped, and it outputs to stderr
07:07:14FuriousGeorgeforcing 29.97 fixes
07:07:42MU{lappy}hrm, is the input interlaced?
07:08:01 Quit saratoga ("CGI:IRC (Ping timeout)")
07:08:14MU{lappy}29.97 probably means either TV (30 interlace frames/sec) or film that's been telecined
07:10:16MU{lappy}also, you probably want to use -ofps 30000/1001, although the difference between that an 29.97 is too small to matter except for fairly long videos
07:10:26MU{lappy}also, i *loathe* ntsc ;)
07:14:15***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
07:20:09FuriousGeorgeMU{lappy}: i was confused being as that is a framerate used in analog tv, but let me find you the doc
07:21:06MU{lappy}aiui ntsc analog tv is "really" 30000/1001 fps, rather than 29.97. i could be mistaken, though.
07:21:51FuriousGeorgeyeah, it is for ntsc, even though i wasnt specifying ntsc, it was generating that error, and specifying that fps fixed it
07:23:29FuriousGeorgemencoder in_file.avi -of mpeg -oac mp3lame -lavcopts acodec=mp3:abitrate=128 -af resample=44100:0:0 -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg2video:vbitrate=200 -vf scale=220:176>,harddup -fps 30000/1001 -o file.mpeg
07:23:58FuriousGeorgethat produces poor quality video and it still has not honored my aspect ratio... lemme throw in a -zoom and some other options
07:24:49MU{lappy}well, if you want it cropped, you are going to need to use the crop filter.
07:26:19MU{lappy}also, is your input interlaced, telecined, or progressive? it's fairly unlikely to be progressive, and if it's interlaced it *might* look better deinterlaced, and telecined will almost definitely look better detelecined.
07:27:24MU{lappy}... although i guess it's possible that it *was* interlaced and somebody deinterlaced it before encoding it to the avi file you have
07:33:29FuriousGeorgei think its progressive
07:34:58FuriousGeorgesudo mencoder IN_file.avi -of mpeg -oac mp3lame -lavcopts acodec=mp3:abitrate=196:vmax_b_frames=16:vb_strategy=2 -af resample=44100:0:0 -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg2video:vbitrate=200 -vf scale=220:176,harddup -zoom -fps 30000/1001 -o OUT_file.mpeg <−−- this is what im trying now.... you want me to add anything?
07:36:24MU{lappy}... why sudo?
07:37:02MU{lappy}also, the lavcopts stuff about audio codec doesn't apply, since you're using mp3lame for audio instead of lavc
07:37:32MU{lappy}and if you want it cropped, unstretched, full screen on the sansa, you still need a crop filter
07:39:29MU{lappy}-vf crop=420:336:94:0,scale=220:176 ought to do

07:49:00FuriousGeorgeas i was uni-processor and a bit too slow anyway before
07:49:35MU{lappy}420:336 is what you'd need to crop to to scale to 220x176 w/ stretching or letterboxing
07:49:56MU{lappy}and 94 is the number of pixels you'd need to crop off each side to go from 608->420
07:50:58FuriousGeorgei get it
07:51:44MU{lappy}but you're going to lose 30% of the picture altogether that way. i'd prefer letterboxed output myself.
07:51:47FuriousGeorgebut you meant 440, right?
07:53:01FuriousGeorgeMU{lappy}: iow, we are looking for a larger resolution than the devices, but with the same ratio. first we crop to that, then we adjust the res
07:53:01MU{lappy}you said input is 608x336
07:53:35FuriousGeorgeoic... dont we want a resolution on the same ratio as 220x176 to figure out how many to crop?
07:54:23MU{lappy}right, that would be 420x336, if you really want to crop off both sides until it has the same aspect ratio as the display
07:55:19FuriousGeorgeMU{lappy}: ok, so you just cross multiplied the other way... x/336::220/176
07:55:38FuriousGeorgeim with it now
07:56:06MU{lappy}like i said, i'd rather the letterboxed version myself, since you can't be sure about what's in the 15% cropped off each side
07:56:19FuriousGeorgei was thinking that too
07:56:24FuriousGeorgeotoh the screen is already so tiny
07:56:42MU{lappy}yeah, that's a serious issue on such a small screen
07:56:48MU{lappy}you could always do it stretched :)
07:57:14MU{lappy}... by 45%... probably very visible and ugly
07:58:00FuriousGeorgenot to mention that my ratio is >4:3 (it's 4.3.2), so if i get some 2.35x1 media, which i do from time to time, ill probably have to go more conservative on the shrinkage
07:58:11FuriousGeorgeMU{lappy}: i mean: zoomage
07:58:15FuriousGeorgeor scalage
07:59:30MU{lappy}right, your display is 5:4, there's basically nothing that can go on that w/o cropping or letterboxing
08:00:00MU{lappy}and, ick, 2.35:1 on that, letterboxed, would be 94px tall
08:00:49MU{lappy}i don't suppose something w/ a bigger and less square screen is in the budget? ;)
08:01:20FuriousGeorgeMU{lappy}: i could get an iphone, but then id have no reason to replace the firmware :)
08:01:54MU{lappy}aside from format support
08:02:30FuriousGeorgeMU{lappy}: even with the cracks the iphone lacks good support for a/v formats?
08:03:10MU{lappy}i have no idea. i don't have one, so i don't really care if you can make it play non-itunes format
08:07:44FuriousGeorgeim spoiled from years of using linux in one way: i feel limitations should be real not arbitrary
08:09:04MU{lappy}heh, yeah, but i'm not sure how hard it would be to add formats to the built-in media player
08:14:17FuriousGeorgeit needs an mpegplayer port
08:14:24FuriousGeorgefor the unlocked version :)
08:14:47FuriousGeorgeok, gonna try this again... was taking more than 45 minutes to software scale on my dual opty before
08:21:46FuriousGeorgeMU{lappy}: hmm... [CROP] Bad position/width/height - cropped area outside of the original!
08:21:55FuriousGeorgeit made sense to me when you explained it

08:49:38MU{lappy}also, you prolly want to add threads=2 to your lavcopts
08:50:21FuriousGeorgei did the latter
08:50:34FuriousGeorgeim sure i had crop...
08:50:53FuriousGeorgeMU{lappy}: the crazy thing is, it didnt crop
08:51:02FuriousGeorgeim taking out the :0:0 to see if it helps
08:53:58FuriousGeorgei think my low latency desktop kernel doesnt really take advantage of my cpus when i encode media
08:54:26FuriousGeorgeusing nice -11 im getting a load of about 1

08:55:50*FuriousGeorge didnt mean to spam
08:57:30MU{lappy}you might also wanna use -lavdopts threads=2
08:57:34MU{lappy}i get better utilization that way
08:57:52MU{lappy}also, i'd use top to get a good idea of what kind of CPU load you're having
08:58:24MU{lappy}and nice only matters when you're contending w/ other CPU-intensive processes, you probably don't really want to be using it
08:59:32MU{lappy}also, le sigh, apparently no way to support metadata for ac3 files w/o transcoding to another format :/
09:01:09FuriousGeorgeMU{lappy}: i know you didnt mislead me b/c i verified that -vf crop stuff in a thread about this...

09:07:51FuriousGeorgedoes the -1 mean it's failing?
09:09:11FuriousGeorgeMU{lappy}: i would think a failure would be a bit more verbose...
09:10:11LloreanOkay, I've just got here and had to read through a few hours of non-Rockbox talk in here
09:10:51LloreanPlease take off-topic talk somewhere else. "How to convert videos" is more or less the same as "how do I rip CDs", not really relevant to the actual Rockbox channel.
09:11:07FuriousGeorgei always wondered what the possible harm in people being off-topic in an otherwise silent room was, and now i know
09:11:34LloreanIt's explained in the channel guidelines...
09:11:47FuriousGeorgeno need, i totally get it
09:12:15LloreanYeah, but it's like the first sentence of them.
09:12:25LloreanIf you'd bothered to read them, it would've saved probably dozens of people a lot of time.

09:14:14FuriousGeorgewell, it /is/ tangentially relevant. perhaps if we get to the right answer, someone will see it, update the wiki, and everyone converting video for their sansas running rockbox wont be hosing their aspect ratio
09:14:17***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
09:14:48LloreanAnd you can do that in the off-topic channel, and update the wiki yourself since it's a wiki
09:15:11scorcheplease dont try to blur the is either directly relates to rockbox or it doesnt
09:15:12FuriousGeorgei could be that someone
09:15:13MU{lappy}i'm inclined to agree that content preparation is not off-topic, but it's not my call. ;)
09:15:42FuriousGeorgebesides, i said i'd take it to #mplayer before you'd said anything to me
09:15:56LloreanMU{lappy}: This channel is for questions pertaining to the Rockbox software. Content preparation doesn't beyond "What requirements must the content meet?"
09:16:20LloreanHow to make that content meet those requirements has nothing to do with Rockbox itself, just a host of other software.
09:16:35FuriousGeorgewell, since i took it elsewhere, cant we just agree to disagree
09:16:46MU{lappy}fair enough, i'll keep that in mind in future.
09:17:12LloreanFuriousGeorge: The key is that certain people who are here often should know what is off topic, and why, so this doesn't happen again. I was clarifying for one of those certain people. :)
09:18:31scorcheFuriousGeorge: feel free to disagree, however the guidelines stand and you now know which side of the line these matters are on ;)

09:19:14FuriousGeorgescorche: i dunno, i got a little lawyer in me. everything is subject to interpretation
09:19:20MU{lappy}if i read the code right, there's no tag support of any kind for the a52 codec... i'm assuming because there's no native tag format or consensus about the use of add-on tags like id3 or ape w/ it?
09:19:36scorcheFuriousGeorge: i made those guidelines...i can tell you the creators direct intent ;)
09:20:08LloreanMU{lappy}: generally, we only support "native" formats, so since there's not one, it's as simple as that.
09:20:30FuriousGeorgesorche: fine, you win
09:20:49MU{lappy}a sensible enough decision, even if it "forces" me to transcode lossy->lossy to add tags
09:21:13MU{lappy}not that resampling 48KHz->44.1KHz is exactly lossless, anyway
09:22:13LloreanMU{lappy}: You are aware that you can store it in a folder structure, and have Rockbox display folder and filenames in the place of tags, if tags are not found?
09:23:46MU{lappy}actually, i was not. this is the first cause i've had to touch anything that was in a non-taggable, lossy format.
09:24:30LloreanThe default WPSes ought to do this already
09:25:03LloreanExpecting an \Artist\Album\Songname.ext layout.
09:26:20MU{lappy}ah, geez, the S60 has decided it's too low to boot up, again.
09:31:22MU{lappy}i imagine such files would still not be in the database, though?
09:31:28 Join davina [0] (
09:31:34MU{lappy}i came from karma, i use the database pretty much exclusively
09:31:43LloreanYes, they wouldn't be in the database
09:34:13MU{lappy}i don't suppose supporting tags from a text file stored alongside the audio file would be a feature many would be interested in, eh?
09:34:33MU{lappy}or to put it another way, if i worked on such a thing, it'd probably not be wanted in rockbox, right?
09:34:55stripwaxMU{lappy} - it may just be easier to recode into a taggable format
09:35:39LloreanWhy would we accept tags in a separate text file OVER "non-native tag formats"?
09:36:54MU{lappy}Llorean: because it doesn't involve messing w/ the file itself, i would think. i'm just trying to think of a way that might be considered more acceptable than slapping APEv2 or ID3 tags onto files that aren't really expected to support them.
09:38:11LloreanApeV2 is more or less designed to go on files that aren't designed to be tagged, isn't it?
09:39:28MU{lappy}and it looks like adding APEv2 reading is simple enough that i wouldn't mind maintaining it in a custom build if it weren't wanted upstream. my only real concern is that the codec might try to "play" the tags.

10:33:21BeatsYes i have

10:34:38bliv56Well i re-initilized it like bit over 2 months ago. Still it remains all songs in recently added

15:48:57SETH_HIKARUtheres the link
15:49:07SETH_HIKARUread it very carefully someone
15:49:19SETH_HIKARUso i can get the CORRECT HELP
15:49:45*JdGordon withholds his incorrect help...
15:49:52BigBambiAs it says, try patch -p0 < patchfile
15:50:11SETH_HIKARUi dont want to not include part of the file
15:50:17BigBambiSETH_HIKARU: and if you want help, I would try being more gracious and less rude
15:50:23SETH_HIKARUthat just deafeated the whole pupose
15:50:30BigBambino it doesn't
15:50:41SETH_HIKARUoh well thats what it says
15:50:41BigBambiGo and read up on patch and how the -p option works
15:50:51BigBambino it doesn't
15:51:40SETH_HIKARUoh i see
15:51:52SETH_HIKARUit removes directory info
15:51:56SETH_HIKARUso then
15:52:08SETH_HIKARUwhat -p and then the nmber should i use
15:52:09BigBambiSETH_HIKARU: please stop using the enter key as punctuation
15:52:28BigBambiSETH_HIKARU: did you read
15:52:47BigBambiThen read it again, it tells you
15:52:59BigBambiEspecially the Applying a Patch section
15:53:55SETH_HIKARUso just to be correct would i use -p1 and you can only answer this question if you ave looked at the photo
15:54:28BigBambia) It says to start at p0 and work down b) I have looked at the picture c) If you want further help, sort out the attitude
15:55:28*bluebrother would _really_ like to not see SCREAMING nicks.
15:55:29SETH_HIKARUBigBambi: Would you please tell me if i am correct in using -p1?
15:55:38BigBambiSETH_HIKARU: I *just* did
15:55:49BigBambiRead part a of my previous answer
15:55:56BigBambibluebrother: I agree
15:56:09bluebrotheryou most likely need -p0
15:56:18SETH_HIKARUyou said it says to start at p0 and work your way down
15:56:20bluebrotherand *please* use a sane nick. Screaming nicks aren't.
15:56:35BigBambiSETH_HIKARU: so use p0 then, if that doesn't work p1 etc.
15:56:51BigBambiSETH_HIKARU: This is *exactly* what the wiki page says
15:56:58BigBambiPlease go and actually READ it
15:57:11bluebrotherin your screenshot you don't use a strip option at all.
15:57:24SETH_HIKARUok ok ok

15:57:39 Quit MarcGuay (" ajax IRC Client")
15:57:40SETH_HIKARUwell 2/3 of a problem fixed
15:57:49BigBambibluebrother: I have already given him the exact command and he started arguing about what -p does
15:58:05SETH_HIKARUim thinking
15:58:06bluebrothergive him a link to the man page of patch ;-)
15:58:13BigBambiSETH_HIKARU: Then don't tell us about it
15:58:20bluebrothereveryone silent! SETH_HIKARU is thinking!
15:58:34SETH_HIKARUit says 1 out 3 hunks failed
15:58:42BigBambiSo the patch is out of date
15:58:43SETH_HIKARUand then
15:58:43desowinso patch is out-of-sync
15:59:00BigBambiThe source code is is trying to change has been altered in SVN since the patch was created
15:59:43BigBambiSETH_HIKARU: as it says, you need to look at the .rej file and manually alter the code as required
15:59:56SETH_HIKARUCS file:/cvsroot/rockbox/apps/plugins/doom/i_video.c, v
16:00:01SETH_HIKARUtyhats what it says
16:00:12BigBambithat means nothing
16:00:18BigBambion it's own
16:00:34SETH_HIKARUya thats where i got lost
16:00:42BigBambiI'm sure it isn't all it says
16:00:42SETH_HIKARUi dont have a .rej file
16:01:00SETH_HIKARUand i dont even know how to do that
16:01:04BigBambiCopy the output of the patch command to

16:01:41BigBambicopy and paste
16:01:55BigBambiSETH_HIKARU: but if you can't be bothered, then I can't be bothered to try and help
16:01:58SETH_HIKARUfirst of all does.rej stand for reject
16:02:19SETH_HIKARUand i do what with that again
16:02:52BigBambiYou can scroll up and read what I typed before
16:03:00JdGordonSETH_HIKARU: what are you trying to do.... this will save everyone alot of headache if I just do a build for you
16:03:25BigBambiThe .rej file contains the part of the patch that couldn't be applied. You need to manually apply that to the relevant file
16:03:33SETH_HIKARUare u serious
16:03:33BigBambiJdGordon: saviour :)
16:03:43SETH_HIKARUscrew u bambi

16:05:43BigBambiSETH_HIKARU: You are trying to apply a patch - we clearly aren't going to supply every possible combination of patches and builds
16:05:58SETH_HIKARUi disagree on that; a script cannot think for itself, a script cannot add patches that have just come out
16:06:02BigBambiThe distributed builds of plain SVN work just fine
16:06:05bluebrotherdo we support patches at all?

17:52:14gevaertsThere is a mostly working usb stack, but as long as it's only 'mostly', it won't get enabled by default. Charging is a different issue, I'm not sure what the status is there

21:48:05LloreanIf they're on the player already, why would you want to copy them over again?
21:49:11MarcGuayIs this the right syntax for the manual if I'm trying to add a second posible keymap? {\ButtonRight{} + Long \ButtonRight{} or \ButtonPower{} + \ButtonRight}
21:49:42MarcGuayThere seem to be a lot of "without_combo" button presses missing from the manual...
21:50:53xqtftqxLlorean: because i build a lot and i dont want to keep copying them
21:51:03BigBambixqtftqx: You don't have to
21:51:14BigBambiunless you delete them they will stay there
21:51:39BigBambiUpdating Rockbox just involves overwriting Rockbox files, not deleting other ones
21:52:58xqtftqxi understand i update a diffrent way to test builds, i rename .rockbox and add the new one, i whould like just to be able to delete the old .rockbox and keep my files
21:53:30scorcheif you want to keep them, dont delete them...
21:53:37BigBambiIf you want to keep the old one copy it to a new name instead of renaming, and then unzip the new one over the top
21:53:40LloreanYou'll need to edit the script for making the .zip, but it's really an awkward way to go about things.

21:56:54xqtftqxit is Bagder thanks, although ill be fine...
21:57:10LloreanBagder: I think an open feature request tracker is still a good idea, but I do agree it doesn't really "work." How would you feel about having a 100% separate tracker, just for feature requests, that's not reviewed? Then, if anything from it gets implemented, they can submit a patch, and if we see anything we like, we can move it to the official feature request one (alongside bugs/patches currently)?
21:57:37LloreanMake it clear the "open" one is just that, wishful thinking, nothing gets rejected, and there are to be no expectations from it.
21:58:04BigBambiI just can't see many people (devs) reading it
21:58:13xqtftqxthats not a bad idea, but i think you guys should review things
21:58:15BigBambiAnd if they don't it remains it bit pointless
21:58:22LloreanBigBambi: The current one already IS pointless
21:58:26LloreanThis way we'd just be making it clear that it is.
21:58:27BigBambiLlorean: I know
21:58:44BigBambiI don't see the point in keeping something and saying it is pointless
21:58:52BigBambiIf we say it is pointless, why keep it?
21:58:52LloreanMeanwhile we'd have a clear place for people to voice. Some devs would read it now and then. And it would give us someplace to say "go read through this for ideas" if somebody says "What can I work on?"
21:59:10LloreanBecause it's pointless to people who are fixing bugs, or working on their own ideas.
21:59:28LloreanBut users want a place to recommend things, and right now it seems they think there's a tacit promise to eventually get to it involved in the current system
21:59:44BigBambiI agree with the criticism of the current one
22:00:12LloreanBut if we don't put something up, they'll just move them to the forums, or the mailing list, and create just as much noise.
22:00:16BagderI'm not sure such an open one will help
22:00:18BigBambiBut if the other one remains pointless (which I think it essentially will), I don't see it as helping - "You can suggest things here but it will be ignored"
22:00:18LloreanThere needs to be an outlet for the noise, somewhere.
22:01:11LloreanI didn't say "but it will be ignored." I mean we make it clear that "it is merely wishes, and there is no guarantee that any ideas on this tracker will be seen or responded to by a developer in a timely manner, it is just a place to gather them so that if a developer goes looking, they know where ideas can be found"
22:01:38LloreanThe problem, *really* is that developers already active rarely go looking for ideas anyway.
22:01:40xqtftqxi agree
22:01:55LloreanAnd the clarity kinda needs to come from making it clear "you can suggest, but we aren't really looking most of the time, there's too much else to do"
22:02:28BigBambiThing is though, it will essentially be ignored whether that is said explicitly or not
22:02:43LloreanHaving an open tracker, and a closed feature tracker (where we can move features once they become officially "planned" like viewports was) accomplishes this, I think, without just telling people "Instead of posting to the tracker, post to the mailing list, and remind us every 3 months of your idea until we reject it, then remind us every six months hoping our opinions change"
22:03:17BigBambiI don't object to it, I'm just slightly sceptical as to what it will achieve. I'm happy to be proved wrong however
22:03:17LloreanI just think they need somewhere to go, and having an open tracker at least gives them a path of least resistance settling place.
22:04:40xqtftqxit whould keep the forums, mailing list, etc clean to
22:04:57Bagdernot really, as people would need to discuss their entries
22:05:02Bagderabout moving them
22:05:09Bagderand similar things
22:05:27LloreanWell any developer can move an entry he or she is actively interested in.
22:05:55Bagderyes, I just meant that users will of course come whining about moving their pet tasks to the dev list
22:06:24LloreanWell the dev list should probably still be open to comments.
22:06:24Bagderand rightly so, if we haven't noticed a goodie etc
22:06:30LloreanOh, right
22:06:38LloreanWell yeah, but they've got to call attention to them somehow
22:06:50xqtftqxmaybe like a poll? like "blah blah devolpers believe this is a project worth working on" and lower the number of devs thinking its a good idea the lower it goes down
22:06:56LloreanI mean, how is saying "Have you noticed this task?" any different from posting to the ML saying "I had this great idea!"?
22:07:23Lloreanxqtftqx: How many people think it's good is worth a LOT less than how many people actually plan to do it
22:07:26MarcGuayI think I'm losing my mind. I know that ACTION_WPS_ABSETB_NEXTDIR can be triggered by a Short-Right + Long-Right but I can't find it in the keymap. Grr...
22:07:52BigBambixqtftqx: If a dev wants to work on something, they generally will
22:08:10BigBambiAnd discuss it in here to see if there are any objections of they aren't sure
22:08:15BigBambiThey don't need votes as such
22:08:31LloreanI just think removing the open tracker will generally just result in a lot more noise in the other channels that will get, mostly, just as ignored.
22:08:36xqtftqxbut it whould give a better wish list with things wanted more at the top and things wanted less at the bottom
22:08:44BigBambiwanted by whom?
22:08:55BigBambidevs work on what they want
22:09:02Lloreanxqtftqx: It doesn't matter how wanted something is, though. Viewports has been really wanted for a long time, and still took forever to get started.
22:09:20LloreanThe only thing that really matters is a form of consensus that something is unwanted, and that just means a rejection anyway
22:09:28xqtftqxbut as you said above its a wish list not a "upcoming feature" list
22:09:47LloreanJust because it's a wish list doesn't mean it matters how many people want it.
22:10:23LloreanA feature that one person wants, is trivial to implement, and will literally have zero performance impact is more likely than a feature thousands want but isn't wanted by the core devs, or perhaps is wanted by them but requires a rewrite of the playback code.
22:10:42xqtftqxcorrect me if im wrong, but some devs want to make rockbox better for other people rather then themselves, this whould give them a idea on what people want
22:11:27krazykitone might argue that a dev making rockbox better for him/herself IS better for other people
22:11:33LloreanEven then, it still doesn't matter how many people VOTE on it.
22:11:51LloreanAll that means is stupid ideas lots of people like crowd the top, while clever ideas that most people don't understand get hidden pages back
22:12:01LloreanIt creates a hierarchy based on "which thing sounds coolest"
22:12:29xqtftqxi guess your right
22:12:51xqtftqxand it whould cause things like people wanting technicly impossible things
22:13:09BigBambixqtftq/me wants Rockbox to brew beer!
22:13:21BigBambi-xqtftq :)
22:13:30xqtftqxlol, i saw somebody asking for a psx emulator

22:14:51bluebroth3rLlorean: small wish for the forums: could it display *this* as bold and _that_ as underlined?

22:16:37LloreanIt would be nice.

22:17:33Llorean*this* and _that_
22:17:41bluebrotherit displays as you type
22:21:34xqtftqxI still dont understand...
22:22:19bluebrothercheck my first *this* and look how it looks. The forums simply display it. My IRC client boldens it.
22:22:42xqtftqxoh, so the forum doesnt show bold?
22:22:52BigBambinot by using *word* no
22:22:59BigBambiYou can make it bold by other means
22:23:05bluebrotheryou need to add the proper tags. *this* doesn't work
22:23:44xqtftqxso you can do 2 *'s to make it bold in the irc but not the forum *test*
22:23:47bluebrotherbut *this* is something some people (like me, for example) like using as its much faster. For example, OpenOffice can detect and replace *this*
22:23:58xqtftqxalright i get it now
22:24:19bluebrotherit's also quite nice for email −− you can write *bold* without the need of sending HTML crap.

22:49:31jayde_drag0ni tried to find help before.. and all i got was....... silence
22:49:49advcomp2019what ipod?
22:50:07jayde_drag0n5th gen i think? 80GB Black and plays video
22:50:30advcomp2019you sure it is not a 6th gen?
22:50:52xqtftqxjayde_drag0n: if you trust me i can remote controll your computer and take a look
22:50:57jayde_drag0nmabye it is.. i have no idea.. do i have to run things differently?
22:51:14saratogayou need to check google and figure out what ipod you have
22:51:21advcomp2019you cant run rockbox on a 6th gen
22:51:25jayde_drag0nxqtftqx: i don't mind.. theres nothing on my computer you can't see.. but you'll have to walk me thru the steps so you can

22:54:33jayde_drag0noh lol k
22:54:55BigBambiThe 80 GB comes in both 5.5 and 6th generation. Rockbox only works on the former
22:55:00bluebrotherwell, as the links suggests it's a knowledge base (KB) entry
22:55:07jayde_drag0n" iPod classic (80 GB or 160 GB) 2007-09 Click Wheel 80 GB or 160 GB 1.1.2"
22:55:16BigBambiSo you have a classic?
22:55:21bluebrotherthat is even linked from the IpodFAQ
22:55:25Bagderclassic == 6th gen
22:55:26BigBambiIn which case, Rockbox won't run on it
22:55:30bluebrotherscroll down or click the "ipod classic" link

22:56:05bluebrotherso please check the serial

22:57:24Bagderwith a classic that's pointless
22:57:34saratogawho would ever have imagined that looking at two pictures and seeing which one matches an ipod was so difficult
22:57:54BigBambisaratoga: or even easier, the last digits of a serial number :)
23:00:15jayde_drag0nfrom what i'm hearing.. i'm just screwed.. no windows so i can't format it.. and noone anywhere has an answer for me to get ipod to show my music again.. and no workaround with rockbox
