  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
  13. lol good luck passing that with all the money and lobbing that those companies will put into making sure that never happens, it's never gonna happen.
  14. Yes, but it would be helpful if you gave me some specific software or tool/ some steps to follow. I would like to avoid openVPN, because it doesn't seem to work for me.
  15. So I have a computer that has a game playing on port 555. I can port forward it, and people can connect to my ip address at Let's say I have a computer B at address, which I don't care that people know the IP address to. How can I port forward my game from computer A, to computer B, and then have people connect to computer B at at port 555?
  16. I really, really hope it's this and I don't need to fish a wire through the walls, but upon unscrewing one of the sockets I could not find evidence of a second cable somewhere in there. But it's odd, because there are 7 ethernet sockets in my house (including the ones that supposedly don't go downstairs), and there are 7 CAT5e cables down stairs. You know, I *could* unscrew the useless coaxial cable in the bypassed ethernet panel (the one we are discussing is attached to only another panel) and attach it to an ethernet cable, and just pull it down to the patch panel all the way down... could I actually do this? Is it standard for fished coaxial or Cat5 telephone cable wires to be nailed to anything inside of the house? I really don't need them
  17. @Brink2Three Another question for you: For some very odd reason, one of the ethernet panels seems to be connected to another ethernet panel somewhere else in the house. I tested this and I got above 100mbps speeds (500mbps). Does that mean that those two ethernet panels are ruined, and the contractor who installed it messed it up? Or is it possible that they daisy chained it somehow? is it even possible to daisy chain ethernet? I'm so confused now There are 7 ethernet ports in my house, and 7 blue twisty cables in that bundle. Two ports are connected to each other, but there are still 7 ethernet cords there?????? My house also has coax and telephone lines (many more of these), hinted by the telephone punch down block over there
  18. Wow, thank you all for the information! I'm going to go down and respond to all of the posts I was planning to move my router downstairs where the cable is once I fixed this (there is an ethernet jack where my router is) Oh I see! I have heard of an ethernet switch before. Oh.... I see... This is really informative! The punchdown block seems really simple; the wires are color coded, so I assume I just connect them to their colors and it will work? The issue arises where it's a big mess of wires. >_< I don't need to pay 300$ for a technician to do that lol Would something like this work? https://www.amazon.com/Tripp-Lite-Wallmount-Ethernet-N050-012/dp/B000067SC6/ Thanks so much guys!
