  1. Or just buy another Chinese wifi relay. That was my first thought. Sure could take a while to be delivered but a lot cheaper and simpler. Then again where's the video to be made by doing this way…? Also Arduino maybe? I would have thought that you could keep the old school garage opener - which I am sure is more reliable - and just put an electronic motor to 'push the button' - so to speak. And I would not rely on anything that is integrated with Google I'd rather have it activated by proximity: wifi connects to phone when in range, that triggers the system to open t
  2. Well the original file was a few MBs and when upscaled and de-noised (from 640x480 to 1280x960) it went to a few GBs but when that file was compressed with Handbrake it came back to a few MBs just a bit larger than the original file but a lot sharper. I know near nothing about video compression but I do know a bit about audio compression so if it's similar it means human eye perception sees better image on the new compressed file but the system does not 'see' much better than the original file because the new file lost actual data when compressed…? EDIT: I don't know if
  3. Fired up Movavi, saved the file as 'highest' MP4 (it went from a few MBs to a couple GBs - no apparent change in quality though ) and it worked. Now it does show up as HD on YouTube…
  4. So… 1) it does not outperform the Samsung 970 Pro and 2) the best it can do is copy Apple's Fusion Drive technology to Windows…? (Which the video failed to mention by the way). Wow best to get a PCIe RAID board and 2 (or more) actual SSDs instead
  5. If you gonna 'jank it' as LTT always does, better buy it ready then…? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mac-Pro-Mini-Hackintosh-2021-8-Core-64GB-RAM-OSX-11-or-10-15-1yr-Warranty/265056198447
  6. Just seen on eBay and remembered this video… Well… a much better option if you don't want to 'jank it' as LTT always does…? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mac-Pro-Mini-Hackintosh-2021-8-Core-64GB-RAM-OSX-11-or-10-15-1yr-Warranty/265056198447
  7. Ah it might be bitrates and MKV files that are the issue… I'll fix that and come back here. Thanks!
  8. Mac here. What is it that you need exactly…?
  9. Says 320x240 - this particular video is originally 480x360. So even the low-res ones gets capped even further… This sooo frustrating…
  10. FPS is 29.97 How can I tell for sure if it is 720p? Not vast experience on the matter here I'm afraid… And ISP should not be throttling anything. Even if it were I assume that should not have impact on the file uploaded…?
  11. My videos are HD - not 4K, perhaps not 1080p either but definitely not low-res - and yet every time I upload something the max I would get is 480p on YouTube. I've seen/read elsewhere that it can take some time until YouTube servers actually get to the full resolution but I waited hours and yet nothing changed - I waited overnight and still the same low-res on YouTube. I used HandBrake to compress the videos and save space on my drive but they are still HD and looks great on my 5K screen. Am I doing something wrong? Could it be because the source file is 'compressed' MKV/
  12. PPCs didn't age well because only Apple was using them (I think…?). However they were still quite good for more than a few year as far as I remember and I could argue no PC from that period aged well either… As for recent M1 I'm still cautious about anything 'new' from Apple including software. Since Steve Jobs passed it's only about money (as in yes it was always about money after all it is a company but they did have a direction then - a 'vision' if you will - that they do not have today). For instance Photoshop was buggy as hell in Catalina and I am pretty sure they haven't
  13. T2 have several annoyances that can be real bad. For one it makes real hard (impossible?) to recover your data if something in the hardware fails and that is just stupid. ARM chips - and the current MacOSs - are more device-like than computer-like and if I am buying a desktop I don't want a tablet even if it is a 27" one… There are more than a few things to be ironed out for me to even consider it. I held on to my 2011 iMac till a couple years ago when I finally made the move to the 'slim' models for similar reasons. I mentioned the current GPU above: AMD 395M 2gb.
  14. It should be the AMD 580X Pro or something… Not entirely sure about vram vs gpu core - hence the topic - but from what I've read I would be needing those 8gb vram for bigger file sizes right? Plus there aren't many GPU options anyway… Unless I manage to find a VEGA with HBM2 vram but that could come with a T2 chip and I sure do not want that… I had considered an eGPU but it would cost pretty much the same - or more - as upgrading to a newer iMac. And I'm pretty sure the 2019 non-T2 would be the last good one till about 2025 or later depending in how they evolve their CP
