Re: How to play .dvr format?

http://dvr.sourceforge.net/old/html/main.html
That's the URL that lists the features of DVR.
Are you sure it plays the files,or does it only record them? I want to play the files,nothing else.

How to play .dvr format?

Hi,everyone.
Is there a way someone can play a .dvr file (a recording of a TV show made through an MPEG4 decoder/digital TV recording) in Linux?
I tried it on VLC but it seems it's an unsupported format.
Any idea would be welcome.
Many thanks.

Re: Increase bitrate in k3b ripping...?

Just found the answer here: http://forum.sabayon.org/viewtopic.php?f=59&t=20075 It says that you have to insert -b 192 or whatever other bitrate you want,just before the -h in the list of options for lame mp3. So,it has to look like this: lame -r --bitwidth 16 --little-endian -s 44.1 -b 192 -h --tt ...

Increase bitrate in k3b ripping...?[SOLVED]

Hi,everyone.
I use k3b to rip cd's and it works fine.
I can't seem to be able to rip at a higher bitrate than 128 in mp3 format,though.
Is there something that I have to customize?
Many thanks.

I just wanted to have a safe version,because there is a lot being said these last few days about a vulnerability issue prior to 3.6.2. I think I'll just wait for the official...

Firefox doesn't get updated...

Hi,everyone.
I installed Mint 8 KDE almost a month ago,but although in Windows Firefox gets regularly and automatically updated (3.6.2 now),in Mint it has remained stuck to the 3.5.8 version.Is there something I'm not doing well...?
Many thanks.

Hi,everyone.
Does anybody know how I can convert .WV audio files (probably WavPack...) into .mp3 's?
Which converter? Does it need any extra plug-ins?
