  1. I want to use STDOUT from this program called streamlink and send it to the STDIN of another program that uploads files to internet archive. How do you typically accomplish this? Does it involve asynchronous code? The help page for streamlink says it supports STDOUT https://streamlink.github.io/cli.html#cmdoption-stdout And the help page for internet archive says it supports stdin https://archive.org/services/docs/api/internetarchive/cli.html but... how do you tell it which STDIN I want to use?
  2. When I run ffmpeg -i input.ts output.mp4 what is it actually doing? It seems to re encode the video, but what is it actually doing in this command? I can't find anything about this online, about what ffmpeg does when no params are specified. Any ideas?
  3. Yes, the server does in fact support resume. I use a node js program called http-server, and it has allowed me to seek through to the end with mpv player. (the videos on the video server were also seekable with mpv) Can you specify what you mean by "dumping streams"?
  4. because i don't want to re encode the video because i don't want to download the entire livestream so I can seek to the end and clip it. handbreak requires a local file, no?
  5. so I have been using the following command to get the last 10 minutes of a very very long livestream ffmpeg -i "livestream.mp4" -ss 03:00:00 -t 00:10:00 -codec "copy" "output.mp4" this takes forever if the video is longer than 12 hours. is there really no way to just kind of lob off the end of the video with ffmpeg? why does it need to seek through the entire video to find the end of the video????? it's really stupid and there has to be a better way. This is especially bad when I need to do it over the internet, as it requires downloading the ENTIRE 12 hour video when I can clearly seek to the end of it with my player. Any suggestions?
  6. really? so then the xbox 1 controller wont work? I have a ps2 controller, but the adapters are as much as the actual ps2 controllers themselves.
  7. not sure which subforum this goes in, so here is it possible to emulate a ps3 controller so I can use my ps3 without a real controller? thanks
  8. USB disks will not mount on startup without waiting for them to connect first I do not want to edit fstab because it's risky and people have said it can corrupt your OS Any ideas? (Please ignore the code in comments) EDIT: I added a sleep for 10 seconds and it seems to work now, however this is bad because now every command has to wait for the usb drives to mount before it can run. Any other way I can do this without sleeping and waiting for the USB drives to initalize? Is the solution ASYNC?
  9. My computer occasionally locks up and is frozen. The clock does not change, so I assume it has crashed or something. This has happened twice in the past 2 weeks I am forced to hold the power button down to get it to reset. What could be the cause of this? Dying SSD? I checked the smart data and nothing is out of the ordinary. OS glitch/instability problems? Dying graphics card? The oldest thing in my computer is my samsung EVO SSD from 2015 Any ideas?
  10. I tried to set one up, but I always ran into an issue where a certain config file didn't exist in a specific place, and I could not continue the installation. How can I do this using SSH, assuming that the connection is TCP only?
  11. Hello I have a game running on my computer at home and I want to run it through a VPS that I own so people can't ddos me. The diagram looks like this: I know this can be done with OpenVPN, but I don't know how to set it up. Where would I look to learn how to set such a thing up? I tried this but there wasn't anything specific https://gamedev.stackexchange.com/questions/24838/how-to-hide-a-mmorpg-backend-server-from-the-internet Any ideas? Edit: can this be done with ssh?
  12. Hello I want to scan a list of ip addresses using nmap, but can't figure out the proper way to do it. nmap 192.168.{1..255}.1/24 (this works but is not ideal) I can do it using shell expansion, but I want to know the proper way. Is there any feature in nmap that allows this which I am not aware of? (Essentially, I want to scan all the way to
