I'm playing around with the jpeg-xl encoder which is all fun and games, but I can't actually see what the results look like without decoding them again into png files. It'd be super nice if I could just view the results in preview. But I don't know how to make a quicklook plugin.

Is anybody here able and willing to do that? And then preferably make it a brew cask formula?

GitHub | Download

This release brings the latest melonDS developments, which offers major performance improvements due to the efforts of the PC version dev team.

Changelog:

  • Uses melonDS 0.9.1 as the base

  • DSi support (you will need your BIOS, firmware and NAND files)

  • JIT support (on 64 bit devices, which should bring substantial performance benefits)

  • Threaded rendering (brings some considerable performance improvements)

  • Improved audio quality (or maybe it's all placebo. You tell me)

  • External storage support (I couldn't test this extensively. Let me know if anything goes wrong)

  • Microphone input support (the mic will always be listening while running a game. I will add a toggle eventually)

  • Minor bug fixes

AV1: Encoder Comparison: aomenc vs SVT-AV1 vs x265 in 60fps files | Felixkruemel https://www.reddit.com/r/AV1/comments/l18kt6/encoder_comparison_aomenc_vs_svtav1_vs_x265_in/ Wed, 20 Jan 2021 12:52:03 GMT https://www.reddit.com/r/AV1/comments/l18kt6/encoder_comparison_aomenc_vs_svtav1_vs_x265_in/

As the last comparisons between aomenc and SVT-AV1 all are already quite old in regards of the fast development of AV1 I decided to do a new one.

As in previous comparisons from other redditors I used the same DOTA 2 clip but this time in a 60fps scenario. The tested length was 600frames, so 10s with 3 different scenes. All encoders were used in 8Bit mode. I decided only to use reasonable fast presets. Whoever uses e.g. SVTAV1 preset 0 or 1 for production work has my full respect.

That's the result: (open in full screen and zoom in to see it better)

VMAF all 3 encoders

And the individual results

x265 VMAF

SVTAV1 VMAF

aomenc VMAF

As conclusion I would say aomenc has done a big step forward if you compare these results with one from over half a year ago: https://github.com/master-of-zen/AV1-benchmarks/tree/master/2020.05.07%20AOM%20VP9%20X265%20

Also SVTAV1 got significantly better, especially speed wise. Although I think some of the last commit to aomenc which improved significantly aren't built into SVT by now (20.01.2020), so it will get better and better. Remember the time when we said x265 was slow? Yeah the good old times.

You can say the current spot for AV1 movie encoding is either aomenc cpu-used 6 or if you've got too much time cpu-used 4. Using SVT makes no sense speed wise and going to e.g. cpu-used 3 or 5 also makes no sense. And cpu-used 7&8 only works when enabling --rt which is sometimes worse than x264. My current build of aomenc although crashes when using --rt so may be a bug there. If I get it working I may update the sheet above.

As always leave comments, criticism and so on below.

Hello,

Made a script that attemps to fix the infinite scroll of reddit. On top of that i added a "fix" for the show full image button. Now it actually shows the image instead of taking you to the comment section.

Example in usage: https://i.gyazo.com/d6201ffdf85e5b45bc7c2305c13fb806.gif

script is here: https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/404497-reddit-fix

The infinite scroll fix is not yet that amazing, it will delete some posts that you have scrolled over when you have scrolled for a bit. It may jump posts now and then but it's much better navigation as you can scroll to your heart content and you will never get lags. The only thing you may reach is reddits harcoded depth which is a few thousand posts idk exactly how many, i would say around 3-5k?

I get that I'm more or less comparing apples and oranges, but I want to get a feel for how far we've come. I distinctly remember being so excited to get an 8800 gt because it finally meant I could run Crysis.

Just how well does that card stack up to our modern integrated graphics chips on flagship smartphones? How would one even go about testing such a thing?

Back in late 2000s Omegle text chats are really random, one could talk with people from any part of the world regardless of language.

BUT since they added a Google Translator gadget at the top of the page, in order to be able to talk with persons of a certain language the user need to actually translate the whole page, what all times break the UI of the site (at least to Portuguese), plus it restrict the set of possible users to just the language you choose (not even your native language).

So i'm asking for a userscript to "knock down" this language filter, allowing Omegle to actually pick any user regardless of language (and disabling the annoying auto-translation), OR make the translate language dropdown (or create an alternative one) only switch the target language, without translating the whole page.
