How to chat on Fa­ce­book wi­thout the Mes­sen­ger app on An­droid

Posted on

Ever since Fa­ce­book di­sa­bled the chat abi­lity on the mo­bile ver­sion of its web­site, it’s been a pro­blem for any­one who doesn’t wish to have Mes­sen­ger in­stalled on his or her An­droid smart­phone to use the Fa­ce­book chat. I gave up on the idea and just used the Mes­sen­ger on www​.mes​sen​ger​.com for a long time, but re­cently I found […]

Exctract blue‐ray vi­deo stre­ams from ISO file un­der Li­nux (Ubuntu)

Posted on

To be able to en­code blue‐ray (BD) source into some more uni­ver­sal for­mat, you have to first have ac­cess to sin­gle video/audio stre­ams that com­prise the BD. These are vi­deo fi­les with ex­tension .m2ts in­side which is an Advan­ced Vi­deo Co­dec (High@L4.1) vi­deo and PCM au­dio. For now, this ar­ticle will skip the sub­tit­les be­cause […]

Using Slack in Pale Moon

Posted on

Slack is a plat­form made for te­ams to easily com­mu­ni­cate in chan­nels and que­ries (pri­vate messages). It has apps for mo­bile plat­forms (An­droid, Win­dows Phone, iOS) and on desk­tops you have two op­ti­ons. Ei­ther use their app which is re­ally only a web­site wrap­per, or use the web­site in­ter­face in a brow­ser. Which is what I do.

How to start with transco­ding aka fai­rly sim­ple long ge­ne­ral transco­ding gu­ide

Posted on

So, again an transco­ding (en­co­ding – si­mi­liar terms) gu­ide, this time ge­ne­ral and in En­g­lish. This one should serve as an equi­va­lent for the Czech one i wrote some time ago (al­though much newer and up‐to‐date).

Note that this gu­ide is for Win­dows (XP and la­ter), since you efecti­vely can’t transcode on Li­nux and other sys­tems (in other words – Avi­synth is for Win).

Blu­ray en­co­ding

Posted on

It’s now about 8 mon­ths since I star­ted my „en­co­der ca­reer“ in a group rip­ping anime DVDs known as Ani­me­corpx (ACX). I work for them as an en­co­der and what we do is ba­si­cally rip­ping anime DVDs re­le­a­sed in the USA to make them ac­cessa­ble for the rest of the world, where you can’t buy them. But I actu­ally hate DVDs.

Mul­ti­lan­gu­age blog po­sts – Po­ly­lang

Posted on

I re­cently de­ci­ded, that I want to write a ce­train gu­ide (which will ho­pe­fully ap­pear here soon), and I want it to be in more lan­gu­ages (pre­ci­sely in Czech and En­g­lish). So I star­ted some re­search on this to­pic, but it was tou­gher than I ex­pec­ted, be­cause I didn’t re­ally know what to search for. Tes­ting va­ri­ous ways of achie­ving my […]
