I think they have long since abandoned the original intent of the project. Who cares about video over LAN anymore? Now it's Video over WAN, or more importantly, cloud to mobile device. And that works pretty darn well already.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
I'm excited to try this new release. I will load some obscure videos from my collection to see how codec support is holding up. From the looks of the press release, they have a bunch of great features, some of which can take advantage of hardware acceleration. One big test of the new software is how well older platforms without the new hardware are able to keep up. Too many times I've seen codec libraries get slower and slower on old hardware as the features are 'improved' on more powerful hardware. If this newer version works as well as the old, I'll be impressed.
Where did you get that number? Also, please explain how new taxes will be levied and on what they will be spent.
You can't answer any of that because you just blindly believe Fox News or whatever corporate shill you prefer to worship.
They will be published when they are finalized.
Congress makes laws, executive runs the government. Please tell me when you think Congress lost the ability to make laws. While you're working on that, maybe you can explain why you feel that corporate monopolies should be allowed to dominate our access to information? Could it be because your favorite corporate information outlet told you so? Yeah, thought so.
This is the government preventing "rape", as you call it. Large corporate monopolies don't get elected. You are so misinformed I wouldn't even know where to begin educating and ignoramus like you.
This is good news but the deed isn't done until Comcast, TWC, AT&T, and Verizon are defeated in court.
It's a movie. Most people don't care but for those sticklers, all they have to do is release a special edition that contains a "director's cut" of the film as well as a "science advisor's cut." They would eat it up and it would be a fun way to spark discussion.
Make it so, movie guys.
This started with the (valid) concern to prevent overheating damage to laptop hardware. Are they just going to let someone fry their GPU and turn it in for warranty repairs now? That sounds unlikely. The new drivers will probably set a fuse to void warranty.
It would be tracked left, right, up, and down. Every movement of every citizen's wallet would get pumped straight into the FBI, DHS, ATF, IRS, Social Security, family courts, DMVs, and local PDs. Screw that. I'd rather pay for my Dunkin Donuts with blowjobs than with Fedcoin.
You need some military-grade ICE, man. Smooth as glass... it will flatline any intruder in the blink of an eye.
What kind of writer would ever create and then use a word like 'supertiny'?
Successful troll is successful.
Are you saying that theft is good for the economy because new phones have to be bought to replace the stolen ones? Thats a... "novel" theory.
Presumably once the phone has been activated on a different account, the original owner wouldn't be able to report it stolen.
