Re: Magic Window - sort of

The magic window on LV is implemented as an HTML IFRAME element. We might need a phpBB3 extension ("mod") to support that. I'll have a look, but it might have to wait until the week-end. Unfortunately, it's not easy. In phpBB3, either you allow everybody to use the IFRAME tag or nobody. It's very e...

I second that! If anyone wants a redirection [yourname]@legamus.eu to your more private e-mail address, drop me an e-mail.

Re: Discussion of set-up/future legamus.eu

I thought about using flags, but it's easy not to include someone! Anyway, after a couple of weeks the site just becomes an invisible redirection to the Wordpress blog, and once we have a catalogue we put it there.

Re: Discussion of set-up/future legamus.eu

Finally, someone who knows something about colours :D In my amateurish guesswork, I do tend to prefer "strong colours"... As you may have noticed, the forums and the web sites of legamus.eu and hoerbuecher.tuxfamily.org are now fully separated, though there are some redirections in place. I even sep...

Re: Discussion of set-up/future legamus.eu

I'm working on separating the former German project to a different site.
Would this be an appropriate Legamus front page for the next days? As soon as the Wordpress blog is "ready", I set a link; and some time later, we can directly link to the Wordpress blog.

Re: How to catalogue

So in the long run, it would be best to have an uploader that adds metadata from the database to the ID3 tags re-encodes in 64 kbps performs audio normalisation "if needed" (if the data is "too far away" from a normalised version) sends the result back to the MC or, if possible, directly uploads to ...

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...

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.

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...
