Multimedia / Re: SYBA USB Stereo Sound Adapter: Good or bad?
« on: June 03, 2019, 07:42:32 pm »
No time, no HW, no interest. And for the next 2 years (likely starting end of this year) I will be somewhere else. Which will likely coincede with the end of OS/2 for me.

Hi Lars, many, many thanks for all the hard work during the last years. Enjoy whatever you plan.

Have an Sabrent AU-MMSA (https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-External-Adapter-Windows-AU-MMSA/dp/B00IRVQ0F8) since some months; works great and robust. No problem or traps so far.

Lars/Wim Great work and many thanks

Would anyone want to try out ?

Yes i like to do it...

FM/2 is in use here since ages. You will need some time to get the transformation from the NortenCommander idea but after that you will fall in love with this tool. Integrated wit the WPS, D&D everywhere, zillions of features, customizable and extendable.

General Discussion / Re: "It will be ready when it is ready"
« on: May 27, 2016, 10:51:38 am »
Hi Martin,

at first: i really appreciate the work, you have done over the last years for this community.

1. What is your motivation to start this public degradation. Why not talking with the person directly?
The biggest problem we have, is the lack of developers and a can't understand why all the folks that only using the software are doing there best do demotivate the developers. For me, it is a simple calculus to figure out that sponsoring by 20€ or even 50€ for doing the development of things like VBox or OOffice will never be enough for such huge development effort. So the motivation is crucial for ongoing development.

2. I was on the chat and saw the answer and for me this was perfectly ok. Why? Because "It will be ready when it is ready" is a clear statement about the project. It is not rude; it is common developer slang for a dedicated type of projects. It means that we do it for fun (or because we can do it, or we like to proof that we can do it) and we do it the way we like. There is no time estimation (if there is someone out there that is able to do a good time estimation for projects like this he/she can contact me) and the developers will release if they are happy with the status/quality of the project. What the hell is wrong with this? If you not happy with this, you (or everybody else) is totally free to do the work; make a project plan; checkout the source and do it.
And keep in mind all the missed mile stones we have seen in the past - and all the developer bashing we had because of this.

After many years doing no real development for OS/2 i just started to work on NewView again. But discussions like this are making me think about this step....

If you really interested in more and better software for OS/2 start developer motivation. Start sending eMails and say thank you for new versions. Start reporting issues and try to make this issues as expressive as possible.
I personally like to us OS/2 a bit longer, so please be careful with our remaining developers to keep the sytem alive.

Thanks all for you're suggestions. For now I'm using Alex's suggestion of GFC .
However RBRi -- I found and downloaded Araxis ver 4.0 and it worked well but would not save the edited file unless I registered the software. I could find no way to register it. If you're still willing I would like to take you up on you're offer to make it available. You can contact me at rklipp(@)megared.net.mx  -- thanks!

Try the download link on my web page http://rbri.org/links/.

Small update:
spend some time with debugging the hangs. Now i know where the program stops, but still have no idea why and what to do to make it work. Have to try some workaround. Cross your fingers.

PMdiff is still a good option. Araxis made the latest version 4.0c available for free some years ago. But it looks like there last web site update has vanished the download.
If you like i can make it available.

jRipper is only a frontend for the usual programs like lame, oggenc and cdda2wav. Personally i really like the simple ui and a program that only does his job without any whistles and bells. And only without fighting with strange command line parameters. (jRipper was written by dronten; i only did some fixes to work better on os/2)
If i'm able to find the bug i will update the webpage with some more info.

Wouldn't it be simpler to go with a semi-native solution? Leechmp3 http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/download/pub/os2/apps/mmedia/sound/convert/leechmp3_340.zip could easily be adapted for flac, we have the newest flac encoder available on Hobbes and even going with the quick and dirty method of renaming flac.exe to lame.exe should work.
If you are planning on using your flac files on audio hardware, it is probably safest to go with the reference encoder. FFmpeg for example can go to 12 (on a scale of 1-10) but not everything can decode such highly compressed flac files.
Probably faster then a Java solutions as well as once the CDDB info is downloaded it rips tracks and encodes in parallel.
I should test but I just noticed my DVD writer is not showing up anymore :(

Was able to reproduce your problem. Will have a look, maybe there is a way to fix it.

    RBRi

Unfortunately jRipper packed by Ronald (rbri.org) does not work here. It seems to do exactly what I need. Simple front end, freedb, ripping into folder. Problem is it only rippes the first track of a CD. After that it hangs. Cancel button does not work too. Seems jRipper could not start the cdda2wav again for the second track and so waits endless. No difference between the java1.41 and java1.6 version.

Does jRipper work for anyone of you?

Which program do you use to rip CDs to flac?

The WPI installer should contain everything.

Hi Ivan

The file is a reasonably normal cmd file for java apps, might not even be needed but note there is a setting for LookAndFeel

Ignore the 'SET DIRCMD=' at the top if you dont do strange things with your dir command line :)
