udp multicast to tcp unicast proxy and vcr updated..(YAPS)

Today I am releasing a current build of YAPS to give you the chance to take a look at it during the development process. There are a number of new features and bug fixes in this version, the most noticable enhancement is the brand new user interface:

One of the new features is the Space-Usage-Bar:

For a complete overview of all fixed and added things, take a look at the changelog below. Everyone who is waiting for some particular feature to be implemented: it’s on the list and soon in YAPS. Everyone who wants to see a feature in YAPS which isn’t there or planned, please comment this article and tell me what you would like to see.

changelog:

31.08.2006

Read on: udp multicast to tcp unicast proxy extended to be a vcr

udp multicast to tcp unicast proxy extended to be a vcr…

Some weeks ago I wrote about that UDP to TCP Proxy I wrote. And since I am mainly using it for DVB-S tv watching I always wanted it to be a VCR as well. So I extended YAPS to be a VCR.

At the moment I am redoing the Web-Interface of the VCR to give it a shiny and sleek finish, but in the meantime I want to give you the chance to take a look on YAPS+VCR in action, and of course an even deeper look into the sourcecode:


this is the “Add new timer…” screen

this is the home page of the vcr…showing one programmed timer..

So apparently some things happened the last days. I would appreciate any comments on the application and the sourcecode. So feel free to download and use. I am releasing it, as usual, under the BSD license.

You can download the sourcecode here: YAPS12.zip (375,35 KB)

Source: udp multicast to tcp unicast proxy YAPS revisited…and bugfixed

Mystery Science Theater 3000 is sort-of back…

“Mike Nelson – the comic genius behind MST3K – has launched a new site called RiffTrax, where he provides an audio commentary track to mainstream films that you can download and listen to while watching the movie.”

For just $1.99 (beta pricing!) you get a commentary track for a growing number of movies…really really great stuff.

Weizenbaum. Rebel at Work.

Peter Haas and Silvia Holzinger did a film called “Weizenbaum. Rebel at Work.” and I think you should hear about it:

“The film spans 8 decades of Joseph Weizenbaum’s life. It provides a stage for his humorous narrative depicting a World of Yesterday while reflecting on the dawn of the computer age. It follows 83-year-old Weizenbaum on some of his numerous public lessons, effortlessly entertaining overcrowded lecture halls.

The old man is an up-to-date chronicler, a chief witness against militarism and the myths of technological progress, but he remains a modest, funny and most reflective story teller.”

It’ll be available in german language in august and later this year in english.

discovering the “Wizard Wizard”: Canopus ProCoder 2

A couple of months ago we got us a Canopus ProCoder 2.0 educational version. Because we, well had to convert a shitload of MPEG2 and DV movies into several different formats. And because Canopus is telling us that their product is by far the best you could probably get on this planet, we were in.

There is a free demo version available which does not require the red glowing, blue plastic HASP hardware USB dongle key’i thing we got with the full version. Those kind of dongle stuff is really nasty. First of all it bugs you right after you got your Windows started up with an error message, just because you probably haven’t plugged the dongle in. The point here is though: Why checking this at the system start, why not when ProCoder 2.0 is started. And heck! Why a dongle key’i thingy anyways?

ProCoder 2.0 has a neat little feature, the only feature why I would use ProCoder personally, which is called “Watch Folders”. You take a ProCoder 2.0, set it up to watch a folder on a network storage or anywhere you like, and after you setup’d some target movie formats it’ll start to convert everything that appears in those Watch Folders and transcodes it to whatever you configured as a target. Great feature!

But here comes the dongle right back in: You need to go to the server room, find your powerful number crunching server park and stick the… well dongle… into… great. After you recovered from the headache and tinnitus (dramatisation!) you got your ProCoder “server” up and running. The point here is: Why all that fuss with that dongle usb stuff. What’s wrong with serial numbers which are necessary anyway for ProCoder 2.0? Piracy can’t be the answer here. Maybe they want to pretend that it’s worth even a dongle, like AutoCad was back when we called our operating systems DOS.

So back to the Canopus ProCoder 2.0 test: After the setup it comes in two different flavours: The fast and the furious, called “Canopus ProCoder 2.0 Wizard” and the all-inklusive one, called…you get the idea.

So first of all let’s cover the Wizard because the workflow of the Wizard is likely the same as in the ProCoder 2.0.

Step 1: Welcome dude!


oh there it is…Watch Folder!… but we want to convert a single file…

Step 2: Load a Source

I used the current Halo 3 Trailer for demonstration…it’s a WMV HD.

Step 3: Set Source In and Out Point

You can specify where the movie starts and where it ends. So you have some kind of cut-editing capability…well not really. I flinch from calling it cut-editing actually.

Step 4: Advanced Settings

Well Canopus things that Crop-Settings are advanced. But hey, there is a “Select Settings” button which opens a dialog where you can specify alternat audio, specific aspect ratio and so on. Nothing to yell about there.

Step 5: the fantastic and well thought of… ProCoder 2 Wizard Wizard (!!!1!)

Why hasn’t anybody else thought of this before? Use a wizard for the wizard. A master to teach the apprentice. A … oh well, it’s nothing special really. Because if you choose to use it just another dialog box comes up:

Step 6: Select Target

Tricky decision here. We want it HD!

Step 7: a question of format.


[don’t forget to put some text here]…

Step 8: High Definition Format…

Again the very tricky format decision. Rather than recommending a format you have to choose. I did not try what’s going to happen when my source has 29,97 fps and I select 25 fps here (or the other way around). Canopus says ProCoder can do a 3:2 pulldown. Great…

Step 9: Saving your file


Save the day.

Step 10: Job Summary

In the end the wizard sums everything up and you can press some more advanced output setting buttons. And if you’re done, you click “Convert”, finally.

Step 11:

And the evil boffins in your number crunching server park are starting to convert your source movie into whatever target you selected. If it doesn’t do this. Well you will never know why it didn’t do it. Because Canopus choosed to not use any error messages or logging. You can be lucky if you get a dialog box telling you that it just won’t do it. In 9 out of 10 cases it just wasn’t telling anything.

It’s not particularly slow. In fact, if you just transcode something and you’re not using any additional filtering it’s as fast as any other transcoding tool (which come sometimes without dongles, you might have heard that).

So that’s quite everything what’s to be told about the Canopus ProCoder Wizard. Finally let’s take a look at the one feature I love: Watch Folders.

So let’s fire up the ProCoder 2 (watch out to have the dongle plugged in!):

I just want to say something about the GUI of ProCoder 2. About GUI design in general. And I want to start with a simple question: What is wrong with standard system controls?

Why are many software companies are writing their own scrollbards, buttons, dialogboxes, tabs. Why can’t they just use the system wide available ones? The ones that actually work. The ones that draw correct on any machine. The ones that I’ve never seen blinking or be drawn incorrect. In case of Canopus ProCoder 2.0 the custom-made scrollbars sometimes even disappeared and you could see that they where just drawn above the system scrollbars. You software companies. If you take an advice from me: stick to doing the user software and leave the multi-purpose GUI elements to the operating system.

Back to ProCoder 2 and to the precious Watch-Folders. If you click on the “Watch” button you get this dialog box:

Nothing really to write more about than: Everything is intuitive and works out of the box. Select a folder. Select a target. And you’re done. It just works as promised. And if you’re in luck and your movies are in a format that ProCoder 2.0 can read without hassle it even will work with your movies.

The target in this case, if you are curious, is a pre-configured format specification. You can use the wide variety of available pre-configured targets, or you can configure your own. (this is quite tricky and not so intuitive)

Since there’s nothing to complain about the pre-configured formats you are certainly not going to have much fun setting up very very custom things. Like the time when I wanted to just setup my own MPEG-4 target. Which isn’t that easy because when you select the MPEG format you only can choose from MPEG-1/2 formats. Or the other time when I wanted to do it in H.264. That format is available, but you have to find it. It’s deeply burried into the third dialog-layer.

In the end you get quite a good transcoding application with this neat Watch-Folder feature. You also get an awfully rubbish GUI with no error messages at all. If something goes wrong you’ll never know why.

In our case everything went fine and in only one case in my testing I found something that the Windows DirectShow could decode but ProCoder 2.0 could not. I really recommend it for video encoding servers. It’s one of it’s kind when it comes to that discipline and the money is well spend.

pwned life…a battlefield 2 movie

There’s a battlefield 2 movie online for your viewing pleasure:

Kotaku writes:

“”The Pwned Life” apparently took a year to create and is voiced entirely by one man. It takes the form of a mockumentary on the life and times of a hardscrabble gang of soldiers, complete with soundtrack and interviews. Top-notch stuff and outstanding comedic timing.”

Ilmenau drive-in cinema


Once a year the HFC (HochschulFilmClub) organises a drive-in cinema. And yesterday was the first of two days of drive-in cinema in Ilmenau. Unfortunately a storm came up just before the show started. I was ready in place for the movie and then the HFC decided to cancel the event for this time…


They told us to come back the next day…well I don’t have time :-( So no drive-in cinema for this year for me.





Oh…we (Microsoft) even sponsored the event…

System.Net.Sockets.SocketException: Protocol not supported

While coding the multi-platform way – with Microsoft .NET framework on Windows and Mono on everything else we discovered an annoying bug. In some source-code examples that deal with networking you often see something like this:

Socket listener = new Socket(0, SocketType.Stream, ProtocolType.Tcp);

This short code-snippet instantiates a new socket object. Mono compiles this code without any error or warning. But when you run it… this shows up:

Unhandled Exception: System.Net.Sockets.SocketException: Protocol not supported
in <0x00100> System.Net.Sockets.Socket:.ctor 
(AddressFamily family, SocketType type, ProtocolType proto)
in <0x00068> HTTPServer.HttpServer:listen ()
in (wrapper delegate-invoke) System.MulticastDelegate:invoke_void ()

Note: this doesn’t happen with .NET 1.1 and .NET 2.0 on Windows.

You can solve this exception just by telling mono which AdressFamily should be used:

Socket listener = new Socket(AddressFamily.InterNetwork, SocketType.Stream, ProtocolType.Tcp);

Thanks to Ello for his help.

Silver Bells and Golden Spurs

“Silver Bells and Golden Spurs is an exploration of the movie making capabilities of Second Life. It serves as a proof of concept for doing such, as well as the need for certain technical improvements.

With all the available Second Life tools, customized avatars and animations, and with the help of Bedazzle Studios, I knew we could create a high quality, compelling movie.

I first read the anonymous poem in a collection of cowboy poems I picked up several years ago, and immediately knew I had to make this story into a movie. I made notes in the margins of the book describing camera angles, dolly moves and crane shots. When I ran out of room, I decided to adapt the poem for the screen. In the screen play I could accurately describe the action in each scene, and use it as my guide through the production process (just like a real movie is made).

Pulling information from the script, I created lists for props and set pieces, avatar animations, audio, and costumes. These helped streamline the production and assured that no details were overlooked.

The set and all of the props were created on a single simulator, maximizing visual quality while minimizing overhead. I met regularly with the set modeler, character animator and costume designer to review and discuss the progress of their work. Although I had a very specific mental picture of what everything should look like, I needed to allow each of these artists the latitude to explore and use their creativity.”

speed: play games as fast as you can.

There are gamers who don’t enjoy the games the same way the average gamer does. They are called runners. And they are doing Speed-Runs through games.

For example: the complete HalfLife 2 in 1 hour 36 minutes and 57 seconds…

And there is an archive to give you an insight on what is going on in the speed-run-scene:

“SDA is the home of speed runs done on many computer and console games. A speed run is a video of a player striving to complete a video game in as fast a time as they can manage. Sound easy? It’s not! A large number of tricks are usually used, possibly skipping whole areas of a game in the process, and there will always be mistakes.”

blast from the 11 year old past… Sony will use MPEG-2 on BlueRay?

That’s exactly what I was frightened off. If it’s true – what are those morons thinking?! (are they?)

Anyways – they have to fill at least 9 Gbytes of space. And in times of MPEG4/AVC/WMVHD when 720p movies with full 5.1 sound are only around 4-5 Gbytes… you have to find a way to fuck the customer.

So – expect great MPEG2 HDTV movies with 3-4 times the size of their current-generation encoded equivalents… and all that just to fill the space… What’s the point in having the space and the technology when we’re not going to use it?

22c3 Update: What happened and when will the recordings be available?

So here we are. The January passed by and still no recordings. What happened?


picture by namenlos

Straight after the congress we started working on the recordings – but soon we realised that almost all of the recordings we made live with ffmpeg and his friends were corrupted: The audio and video is just not in sync.

Well it would be easy if it was just shifted for a given amount of time – but the amount of shifting time is changing all through the recordings.

So we engaged DEFCON 4 and got back on our backup solution that is there, just in case something would go wrong. (who would have thought that?!).

So what’s DEFCON 4? We came to the congress with 400 brand new DV tapes. And that’s simply what our backup solution is: everything that was recorded during the 22c3 is on DV tape. And it’s in sync there.

So we are extracting nearly all of the recordings from those DV tapes…

And as you can imagine: this takes some time. It takes less time than we’d expected – we are making serious progress. Together with the CCC it was decided that an intro and outro should be added to each recording – that also takes some time. If you are experienced in creating scripted/batched DV material with definable text… we obviously need your help :-)

So when will the recordings be available? We hope very very soon. Like I said we are making good progress in getting the stuff off the tapes, but it’s very difficult to give a time frame. Check back here or on the official 22c3 FeM Homepage for updates – … well if we can get the intro/outro issue working fast it’ll probably be only days away.

Der Triumpf des Banalen

Gegen anspruchsvolle und bedeutungsschwangere Filmkunst ist ja an sich nichts zu sagen, aber manchmal nimmt es mit all seinen Folgen wirklich Überhand.


Bei Namen wie Fellini, Rossellini, Bergman oder Truffaut gehen jedem europäischen Feuilletonisten die Ohren auf, und jeder spricht bzw. schreibt begeistert in wortbrecherischen Sätzen über Neorealismus, Nouvelle Vague oder den Autorenfilm. Und auch an Filmhochschulen schwärmen die Absolventen von diesen Regisseuren (ein wenig heuchlerisch?) und rümpfen die Nase über die Amis (Die gleichen Leute drehen dann später Folgen von GZSZ oder der Lindenstraße).


Wenn man mal in den Genuss kommen sollte, einige dieser Lobpreisungen in einschlägigen, “seriösen” Zeitungen zu lesen, muss man sich nicht schämen, wenn man nichts versteht. Meistens hat man das Gefühl, dass diese Autoren so sehr bemüht sind, in kompliziert verschachtelten Sätzen zu schreiben, dass ihre Artikel sofort tot sind, nachdem sie auf Papier gebracht wurden.


Ein Beispiel:
“[…]Was in den Bewusstseinstrichter an Freud hineingeflößt wird, das kommt beim automatischen Schreiben als Libido-Metapher wieder heraus.[…]Bunuels sanguinisches Temperament schmiedet in seiner Lyrik dieselben explosiven Metaphern und Bildsequenzen nach der Logik des frustierten Begehrens…[…].”


von Gabriele Killert über Luis Bunuel, Neue Zürcher Zeitung, 2000


Für wen schreiben die das eigentlich? Das hätte doch auch einfacher formuliert werden können. Ein Professor an der Uni sagte einmal als Erklärung für dieses elitäre Intellektuellengeschwafel, dass nur durch solche Wörter und Wortkonstruktionen der Sinn der Sache getroffen werden kann. Da mag eventuell etwas dran sein, aber deswegen müssen wir uns doch nicht der deutschen Sprache schämen, oder?


Ein anderer Punkt ist die Interpretation von Werken der oben genannten Regisseure. Da fragt man sich doch manchmal, ob da wirklich soviel in den Filmen drinsteckt, oder ob da eher nach dem Prinzip “Ich glaub, ich weiß was!” gearbeitet wird.


Auch hier ein Beispiel:
In “2001”, das weiß jeder, steht “HAL” für “IBM”. Also spekulierten alle, die etwas von sich halten, wild darauf los, welchen Einfluss Big Blue wohl auf den Film hatte. Dabei übersahen die Meisten, dass Arthur C. Clarke (Autor der Story) vehement den Zusammenhang bestritt und es als Zufall abtat. Denn “HAL” bedeutet lediglich “Heuristic Algorithmic Computer”.


Noch ein Beispiel: In “2001” geht die Reise ausgerechnt zum Jupiter, dem Göttervater. Die Wahrheit ist aber weit trivialer: Der Tricktechniker konnte die Saturnringe nicht glaubwürdig darstellen (denn im Buch geht es zum Saturn), also nahm man einfach den nächstbesten Planeten, und das ist der Jupiter.


Vermutlich könnten diese Leute auch aus einem Haufen Hundekacke die Zukunft lesen, wenn man ihnen einen vorlegen würde.

how to encode a large number of movie files in a batch process…


Hurray! There I found it. A tool that makes it possible to create large batch encoding sessions just with some clicks. You need:




  1. VirtualDub (any current version will probably work) – by the way; I recommend VirtualDubMod



There you go:




  • open one movie file of the bunch you want to encode in VirtualDub


  • set the encoders for audio+video up like you want


  • save the “Processing Settings” to a .vcf file


  • you can close the video file in VirtualDub now


  • start VirtualDub Batcher and:



    • choose the .vcf you previously saved


    • choose the output folder


    • add the movie files you want to encode with the “Add Files” button


    • when everything looks like you want it: “Make Job List” is the button to press


  • open the “Job Control…” in VirtualDub now (F4 on your keyboard) and open the Job List file which is located in the VirtualDub Batchers’ folder.


  • press start and have a cup of tea.

distributed video encoding solution


More than a year ago Matthias Eller and Karsten Donat created a distributed video encoding solution that actually works.


As far as I know they were in desperate need for computing power to encode all the documentaries that Karsten recorded every day (he recorded almost everything that was broadcasted on german free-tv).


So the idea came up to split a single raw-video into a number of parts and let many machines encode these parts automatically. Then these encoded parts are copied back to the server and put together to the now finally complete encoded video.


We’re not using this at the moment for any encoding – but I thought it might be a great idea to write about it ;)



this is the tool to setup a new encoding task that is
submitted to the distributed encoding server


You can get this great tool-set at Matthias’ Website: http://www.static-void-main.de
