Re: Uploading to Free.fr

Your screenshot just shows the standard description of the service, no error message. What happened? Did the upload complete but you didn't see the links? Maybe you have to wait for the mail to arrive (can take hours, as there is some more processing in the background). If nothing arrives, just try ...

Re: How to catalogue

"Replay Gain" does not really change the volume, it just adds a hint in the MP3's metadata. If the player does not honor this, you won't notice any difference. Apple stuff (iTunes / iPod) uses a different metadata item for the same purpose... :roll: VLC should honor the metadata. Do you hear a diffe...

Re: How to catalogue

Thanks for diggin, Vitkor. The mp3gain program for Mac that you list actually only gives you the volume, but does not allow you to change it (I had tried this one a while ago). Strange, because it homepage describes how to change the volume. That does not work? Anyway, looks like one has to be care...

Re: How to catalogue

Are we talking about this mp3gain? Then there exists an (old) Mac version MacMP3Gain . More generally, what mp3gain does is called "Replay Gain", and Wikipedia lists several programs for that, though I don't see anything particularly suited to Macs. It doesn't help that Apple created a similar, prop...

Re: How to catalogue

mp3gain and mp3tag: There must be equivalents for GNU/Linux and Mac. Let me search a bit.

Direct listening of files in web browsers: I hope that we'll find at some point a freehoster (or a friendly server) which supports this. ge.tt is already lightyears above Rapidshare :)

Re: Solo [ENGLISH] The Prophet by Khalil Gibran-neb

For private backups (no public links) we can use personal storage from any country, e.g. the 25 GB from Microsoft's SkyDrive. Of course, such repetitive uploads are annoying if your Internet connection is not too fast. Anyway I plan on keeping a private copy of the "finished recording" in my role of...

Re: File hosting, distribution and storage

Opera Unite is more akin to BitTorrent, the data gets directly streamed from the user's Opera browser. Many ad-based freehosters do accept "unlimited" storage. Our challenge is to find a freehoster that does not display too many ads and who has all of its servers in life+70 "or better" countries. Se...

Re: Disclaimer

What an excellent subject for both inspiring thoughts and nasty flamewars... :) I only have some thoughts to share, I hold in high esteem both the radically clear PD view as worded so skillfully by Hugh and the give-freedom-to-readers view of Hokuspokus. The problem is the lack of distinction betwee...

Try to open a fresh browser session and to paste the long URL into it. Does it still work? When I tested, it didn't!

Re: Aussie readers

Have a look into this thread , there we are discussing precisely such issues. A few ads don't bother us, reliability of downloads are more important. But in particular, we're debating how to assure that we are 100% safe on the legal side. Legamus is a project for PD in life+70 countries that is not ...

Re: Aussie readers

Hi Algy! If I understand this correctly, the Canadians are in a very similar situation to you Australians (maybe even "better", as they didn't yet give up life+50 for the future?) Maybe you can team up? I think you're right: again, this would need a separate community of Canadian/Australian readers,...

Re: File hosting, distribution and storage

Re-reading my post, it occurs to me that the location of the Legamus catalogue and uploader is the most important. Freehosters come and go; we'll use a link resolver and just write "http://legamus.eu/link/Roth-Radetzkymarsch", after that there's a redirect to ge.tt or free.fr or whatever is OK and l...

Re: File hosting, distribution and storage

I think files expire only after they have not been downloaded for 30 days, in the case of ge.tt that becomes even 90 days if one uses a registered account instead of an anonymous download. Reuploads are only necessary if no one downloaded the work for that time. The problem is a different one. ge.tt...

Re: File hosting, distribution and storage

Friendly answer from ge.tt: Our servers are located in ireland. And for the moment it's not likely to change. I can not guarantee it, though. But since this will have consequences for some users we will notify users if this should ever change. Until now we've had no issues with using servers in irel...

The only way to be safe, would be to make sure that we are completely outside the US domain (even with cloud based hosting etc.). Viktor , can we be absolutely sure we are? At the moment, a clear YES ! Domain registered at OVH (French registrar and provider) by me (German citizen living in France)....

Re: Domain name

So far, for our situation, I do think that a forum is the best way. Not sure we'd find a time that suits everybody - I have some minutes every now and then, but at the moment my time is hardly plannable at all - and the person who cannot participate will always feel left out in the rain.

Re: Domain name

If there are no legal clouds on the horizon and we choose freely between legamus.eu and librivox.eu, we might consider questions like this one that popped just up in another thread: Should we allow CC licenses? For me, choosing librivox.eu implicitly says: We're doing things exactly the same way as ...

Re: Templates, tech specs and so on

Somewhere at the forum I saw mentioning of Creative Commons. Then the question is: which license ? Closest to PD would be: also commercial use allowed, modifications allowed, no name needed to be mentioned. But we do not necessarily need to choose that option. I for one would be more in favour to r...
