    @Bedon292: All of that stuff should be addressable in the command line. You can adjust that in transcoder.py, but make sure your text editor uses unix style newlines.

    @jgunn: Probably beers somewhere. We don't know what a good venue in the area will be, so if you're local and have suggestions let me know and we'll make it happen.

  • will commented on Request for Feedback: Spam, possible solutions, and a bit about you

    @bottleworks: I literally spend two hours a day cleaning it out. They're constantly making some small changes to help auto-detect, but the big change to automatically remove stuff that's flagged is held up waiting on another team. There is literally nothing else I can do.

    I'm not ok adding moderators with the amount of spam we have right now because the tools we have for mods suck ass too. It's not right to ask people to volunteer their time to do this kind of work.

    @TheConanRider: Most of the spam we're getting now doesn't even have links. People cray.

    @jccarlton: It doesn't. We have the limits and they either wait, or have figured out a way around them. The IP bans are useless as well, as they use proxies on either infected PCs in the states or just use TOR

  • will commented on Transcoder Feedback

    Hey guys, here's the place to put feedback on the Tested transcoder project. We're specifically looking for bugs (things that don't behave as you'd expect), problems with the install or setup process, or anything else that isn't behaving as you'd expect.

    The transcoder works best with MKV files and can handle multiple audio and subtitle tracks. By default, we're leaving the audio streams intact and only adding forced subtitles to the compressed file. You can tweak the command line that gets passed to Handbrake-cli if you want to burn subtitles in or change the audio formats too, but I haven't written docs for that yet.

    The VM should run on any system that can run Virtualbox. You'll also want to turn on all the virtualization instructions for your CPU in the motherboard, or your performance will be really bad.

    The instructions for installation are available in the readme file on Github, but they're pretty rough. Right now, we assume you know a fair amount about running virtual machines and ripping discs. If you don't know about at least one of those things, it might be tough to get this working with the info we've provided. We'll have a more complete how-to next week.

    Lots of the heavy lifting here comes courtesy of Don Melton's great video transcoding scripts. Much of what we're doing is just automating the setup and fiddlier bits of his scripts.

    Please post your comments and feedback below or on the Github page.

    @gregSTORM2: You should be turned back on. Not sure why you keep getting flagged. If your account doesn't work, let me know and I'll take a closer look on Monday. will at tested dot com

    I transposed numbers and grabbed the 1/20 version, not the 2/10 version. It's uploading now. If you refresh your feeds, it should be right.

    @somekindarobot: Is that with the new player?
