Real Buffering

This might be old, but it gave me a chuckle:

Real™ Buffering
found @ my confined space – original author unknown

I banish anything produced by Real™ from any hard drive I touch. Anyone using their proprietary formats to deliver content to their users is either evil or crazy. Most likely both.

Feel free to disagree, but I have no love for Real™.

    Strangely enough if you look through european and asian torrent sites, there are tons of movies encoded in rmvb format… I think I posted about this some time ago.

    My head just grew two inches to the left. Like I got goosebumps or something.

    I would have put Bullshit instead. But, that’s just me and my Winamp talking.

    winamp = bloated
    itunes = evil + bloated

    Foobar2000 FTW – it looks like crap, but does the job well, and does not hug my memory like some of the other players out there.

    Actually, I was screwing around with Torpark just now. Funny how my flag says I posted that other comment from Germany. :mrgreen:

    I jumped over to 2.0 the day it was released and never looked back. Well, with exception of my JDS box – that one still has 1.5 because I never wanted to bother compiling the dependencies I needed to install 2.0 from source, and making sure I don’t trash the system in the process.

  8. When are we going to get a chatbox? So we dont have to use your recent artical to talk?

    I didn’t think of that. It could be worth while to get one. I’m a bit worried by spam, but I will see what I can do. :mrgreen:

    Btw, I changed that long URL you posted to a clickable link – it was going off the text area on the page and looked kinda weird. I hope you don’t mind.

  11. OH YOUR SUCH A JERK FOR CHANGING MY LINK!!!
    lol its no problem dude its your site. I am a visitor. Plus i was just too stupid to think of shortening it.

    Run a CPATCHA system with it (probably one built in). What would even be cooler if you modded the file is that it only checks for your humanity once per session. like If i log into your site… and post a chatbox post then we can just talk… untill i leave the site… then i have to use the CAPATCHA thing again.

    I dont know but chatboxes are really easy to keep secure. (maybe another reason for you to switch from crappy wordpress to e107.org ;) )

    I actually have no idea how VLC works as a music player. I use it mainly for playing videos. :P

    But yes, VLC is awesome!

    I agree. I dropped my use of Real quite a few years ago. There lack of support for *nix has been poor. Besides, Real is just to grainy for my taste. QT rules!

    Travis/Luke – Gtalk? ;-)

    Well, I have setu up a WordPress based forum instead of a chatbox. ;)

    Not sure if it anyone will want to use it, but it’s there.

    I like VLC, I couldn’t say why, but I like it :)

    Would be useful if it had a library type function so I dont have to root around in folders to find stuff, but I’m not a big enough music fan for it to bother me much

    (NB if I just made an ass of myself and VLC actually does do library stuff, let me know)
