Re: really strange problem ..

that's fair enough but i only ever run two plugins - adblock plus and foxytunes.

no mind though, i'm getting used to not using foxytunes and i'll just wait a while and try again in case it's an error in the update.

Re: really strange problem ..

i don't really get what you're implying with your response but i've used foxytunes on Linux for a long time with no issues.

It is feasible that the author of this add-on has simply released an update that is buggy.

Re: really strange problem ..

well it appears that the foxytunes add-on was causing the problem - i've just re-installed firefox and uninstalled foxytunes and it's running fine now.

i might try to re-install foxytunes though and see what happens because it's something i use a lot.

since yesterday, my firefox has been acting very strangely. it takes forever to load, and when it eventually does, it takes forever to actually connect to the internet. and then it does that, i still have to wait before i can actually do anything because the screen will fade to black and white, usua...

Re: How to get an ipod working without all the hassle

i personally find yamipod very easy to use ..

only slight hiccup is that it takes a little longer to load because I have 20gb of music on mine ..

Re: holy crap ..

holy crap ..

this daryna is sweet :mrgreen: seriously .. towards the end of last year I decided to make the leap to Linux full time and set up Ubuntu on my PC. It was fine, but I wanted something a bit more - something "elegant" :wink: I reformatted again and installed Celena and loved it. Settled on that and us...

i appear to have solved the problem, but the solution was nothing more than brute force/trial and error. i kept re-encoding each file and reducing it by 100mb each time until I got to a point where each file maintained a frame rate of 30fps and was also big enough to enable me to fit 3 on the disk. ...

i think i can achieve this - but only in windows. i produced an 8.9gb ISO file containing my full compilation DVD last night and tried to shrink it using DVD Shrink under wine, but it kept crashing due to being "out of memory". I ran it through K9Copy, but that got to about 40% of the first file and...

Re: need help with video compression .. any help appreciated

As I said ... I know this is not the solution you probably wanted to hear. It's just that I have the impression that whoever created the standard for DVD videos didn't really have us home users in mind ... or else I'd assume that the format wouldn't be so damn complicated and put you through so man...

that's interesting to know dav .. thanks ..

i'm still playing around with this - it's just a pain because each time I try and convert the DVD to MPEG, it takes around 3 hours to run through, even though I have a 3.3mhz processor and 1GB Ram :roll:

need help with video compression .. any help appreciated

what i'm essentially trying to do is create a compilation DVD of three stand up comedy DVD's - i want to rip each of them and compress them to around 2.7gb each, so they can fit nicely on an 8.5gb DL disc. What i'm doing at the moment is ripping each one to my hard drive and using avidemux to conver...
