Utilities / Re: K File Wizard

In eComstation 2.1 x:\ecs\dll I found kcrypto.dll. Copied to ArcaOs x:\usr\local\lib and K File Wizard opens.

I've used Qputty (via SSH) for a few years to sign in to Linux box. On Qputty, nano works the same as on Xubuntu's own terminal emulator.

Write speed to our RAM drive is slower than to one of my SSDs. Even when formated with JFS.
It can be switched to ancient strat1 mode by adding /1 to the HD4DISK.ADD command line. BUT JFS and FAT32 do not support this mode and old (eCS) versions of FAT32.IFS just hang on it. So it`s only for HPFS (or FAT16), but on the other hand it will be fast. Suitable for the swap file, actually.
I have hpfs ram drive. Browser cache of Seamonkey and Dooble are on ram disk. I tried /1 switch and browsing feels really much faster.

You can copy Download Location from Dooble Downloads. Seamonkey is able to download from direct url.

Might be able to build the Qt5 one from here,
I've been using Qputty for at least 6 years. Works well but after the QT5 installation it has randomly died immediately after starting. But not often.

NFTP PM is also a very convenient way to get photo files from Android phone.

I can use my internet bank with Simple Browser. It is slow and crashes often, but it doesn't leak shared memory like FreeRDP.

Please visit , at the bottom of the Browser update 13 you can find 2 questions. Could you please fill in these two questions about your browser experience
on OS/2, eCS and ArcaOS ? Thank you!
For clarity, I answered the other browser. I use Seamonkey 2.35 because on my system it works quickly and well on the pages that it works.

Multimedia / Re: mplayer - H265 problems anyone?
« on: December 13, 2021, 02:31:17 pm »
That's right...not H264, but H265...

Anyways...was pretty happy...but I always do my final review on my OS/2 box to see how the slower hardware handles it. Now here is where the surprise showed up: mpalyer wasn't able to play the H265 video normal. What I mean by that is that the playback was about 1/2 speed and it was definitely single threaded, my CPU monitor would show a single core at 100%, which would switch to another core, etc, etc.

In comparison a regular H264 1080HQ playback normally uses about 15-20% spread on the 6 cores, and it's definitely multi-threaded.

I'm running MPlayer SVN-r38083-9.1.0, smPlayer is just fine and VLC seems to be OK, but for some reason I discovered that none of the 1080 vides are producing video outputs in VLC, but that's a separate issue.

Sooo...I'm curious: has anyone else seen this?

I logged an issue report for this, see =>
I can see same behaviour.

Code: [Select]
mplayer.exe 1.4-9.1.0 (C) 2000-2019 MPlayer Team

Just put to url bar.

Storage / Re: FAT32 - Netlabs or AN?
« on: December 07, 2020, 10:51:38 am »
Today, I use my cell phone as a camera. It takes better pictures than my old HP digital camera ever did (and that was better than my old Nikon  film cameras). I got a short adapter cable, so I could plug a USB stick into it (formatted FAT32), and copy things to that, then to my computer. At one time, I did get the phone to transfer directly, probably using Cameraderie, but that was more difficult than using the USB stick.

I transfer pictures from my Android phone to my desktop computer using Samba share. I used Asus File Manager before because it was installed on my Sony Xperia phone when transferring data from an Asus Phablet. I currently use File Manager Plus. It's better, faster, and you can browse photos, for example, just like on your phone's Album.
