Re: Cloudflare DNS doesn't work

Re: How to convert multiple subtitle files

Hi,

VLC finds the subs automatically if the file name is the same.

Both Media Player and mpv Media Player not working.
Cannot find any menu in mpv.

Thanks.

Re: Disabling Journaling on new SSD

Although difficult to predict, hardware failure, as in chips/resistors/capacitors/etc. or solder joints, going bad !
