@teh_dude ffmpeg is The Tool people use when converting video and often converting images. It's also the tool people generally use for decoding many types of video, since it has its own really fast decoders. Chromium, VLC, and mpv.io play videos using FFMpeg's libraries.

AVIF and JPEG-XL are the next-gen image formats that usually perform much better than JPEG, PNG, and WebP. Web browsers that are not made by Apple generally support AVIF and will soon support JPEG-XL.

Now that FFMpeg has support, we can do things like encode animated JPEG-XLs from source video while using FFMpeg's cool filters. One thing I like to do is encode screen recordings to lossless animated image formats like WebP, dropping duplicate frames with a filter called "mpdecimate". The resulting animated image is smaller than the equivalent video and faster to encode. Now, I can do this with JPEG-XL.

@thunderbird Will there also be an option to interact with the system GPG agent?

@dd Heise Online hatte auch mal einen Emoted Befall und offen darüber berichtet.


@gairsty What do you want to do? I don't have much experience with it, but in my experience the gui was self-explaining for my use-cases. If I don't know something I just search the web for that issue.

@datenschutzratgeber It is not only the gallery: I assume an open source camera app, which can shoot those motion pictures is also missing. But open source camera apps mostly can't compete with their proprietary counterparts...

@datenschutzratgeber @fdroidorg If you have Magisk installed, the easiest way would be to use the Magisk module "F-Droid Privileged Extension".

Andererseits können fehlende Einträge bei Musicbrainz ergänzt werden. Damit würde man der Community auch etwas zurück geben. Das ist auch gar nicht so aufwändig.

Es gibt ein Beets plugin, welches anhand vorhandener Metadaten einen Eintrag generieren und nach stdout geprinted werden kann. Dies kann kopiert und bei MB eingetragen werden.


@jack @wuffel @caos@anonsys.net @caos@metalhead.club @Herbstfreud

Der beets autotagger basiert auf Musicbrainz. Es gibt mehrere Plugins den beets Autotagger zu erweitern, darunter acustic IDs, Spotify oder auch Discogs (braucht API Key).


@werwolf @Zergling_man @jrballesteros05 There are also some preconfigured setups for NeoVim.


For example there is NvChad, which tries to provide an IDE like experience and also tries to be lightweighted.


@lig @novichan what are awesome games on it? My experience of it was not so well the last time I tested. But maybe I came from modded Minecraft and expected a similar experience. The most disappointing experience was the buggy mob movements...

I just tested the new @gajim development version with the mainwindow branch merged to main. I think it is an amazing improvement in look and feel!

Another improvement I really missed in desktop XMPP Clients is "XEP-0393 Message Styling", which is implemented in this version as well. Even syntax highlight for different programming languages is included.

Really nice work the gajim team has done there. I really look forward to the stable release!

Work on Gajim 1.4 is making big steps forward! 🚀 After nine months of developing Gajim’s new main window, the code was finally ready to be merged into the master branch. This enables automatic builds of nightlies for Linux and Windows.


@flandrescarlet Yes, that was a more informative answer.
I didn't noticed that I can move tabs around, thats quite nice.

Thanks. :)

@flandrescarlet Oh I see, there is an add on for that. Thanks, I will give it a look.

After Mozilla recently began accepting donations via BitPay, many people started being vocal about cancelling Mozilla and Firefox and switching to other browsers.

I know crypto sucks, but don't y'all realize that the other browser engines are developed by megacorps that are LEAGUES ahead in terms of ecologic impact, and that are almost entirely built on top of evil business models?

Mozilla's only sin was accepting donations via BitPay. Please let's stop being so toxic about everything, and boycott BitPay and Bitcoin rather than Mozilla, shall we?

@threemaapp I also use this, works like charm with one single drawback: The connection between Threema and Threema Web isn't consistent without Play Services and needs to be restarted regularly, which is really annoying. But when I get it right, with the Multi Device functionally it will be a thing of the past.
