0Logo Flash FLVJogando baixado FLV do

I recently had a prob­lem with 2 PCs which appeared to be con­figured identic­ally, but whilst one would play a FLV down­loaded from you­tube, the oth­er would fail. Some oth­er FLVs played OK on both sys­tems. After much fur­ther invest­ig­a­tion I dis­covered that the act­iveX ver­sion of flash play­er on 1 of the PC’s was up-to-date, but on the oth­er was not.

0GigaByte Dynamic Energy Saver LogoAudio issues with gigabyte power saver

I’ve been suf­fer­ing from audio dis­tor­tion issues when play­ing back movies on my recently rebuilt HTPC. After much test­ing I dis­covered a solu­tion — dis­abling (in my case by unin­stalling) the giga­byte dynam­ic energy saver util­ity. I am not sure if this tool only causes prob­lems because of my spe­cif­ic con­fig­ur­a­tion of codecs, but it cer­tainly did cause prob­lems across a range of hard­ware and media play­ers. Dis­abling it imme­di­ately resolved the prob­lem.

0DVD Shrink LogoAutomate DVD Ripping on Windows 7

With my recent HTPC pro­ject now work­ing really well, I want to rip my col­lec­tion of DVDs to my media serv­er for more con­veni­ent play­back in Win­dows 7 Media Center (and all the addi­tion­al bene­fits asso­ci­ated with Media Browser, par­tic­u­larly the meta data on rat­ings, syn­op­sis, etc). Rip­ping DVDs, whilst straight­for­ward is rather tedi­ous. I found an excel­lent meth­od of auto­mat­ing the pro­cess was to modi­fy my auto­play set­tings with Auto­Play Repair, and point the auto­play to a pro­gram called DVD Rip which auto­mates the rip­ping of DVDs with the well known DVD Shrink.

0Logo Windows Media Center eHomeFixo: Centro de mídia 7 por trás da barra de tarefas no arranque

Eu tive um problema muito irritante com o meu novo Windows 7 Media Center HTPC instalação. Eu tenho 7MC definido para carregar fullscreen na inicialização (como o PC é um dedicado HTPC), mas algo que mudou em algum momento estava causando a barra de tarefas para mostrar em cima do Media Center (i. Media Center não tinham foco da janela) e, portanto, o meu controle remoto não trabalhar até usando a função de mouse para clicar em Media Center para recentrar-lo (altura em que a barra de tarefas desaparece).

0Dentro HDD LogoSpeed up SSDs, especially in netbooks

I recently upgraded the SSD in an Asus eeePC 901, and whilst the size and per­form­ance were both bet­ter, the per­form­ance upgrade still was­n’t on par with even a 5+ year old laptop HDD. The prob­lem with most SSDs, espe­cially the cheap­er ones, is that they usu­ally have very poor write per­form­ance with small files. This can make win­dows very slug­gish and unre­spons­ive at times.

0Logo Windows Media PlayerMudar o padrão WMP para x64 no Windows 7

Uma das coisas mais estranhas no Windows 7 x64 é a presença de ambas as versões x86 e x64 do Windows Media Player 12. Ainda mais estranho é que apesar de ser o Windows Media Center única 64bit (e, portanto, requer codecs de 64 bits) Microsoft viu ajuste para definir o padrão WMP12 versão para a edição x86. Para aqueles de nós que não deseja manter 2 conjuntos de codecs é desejável alterar esse status padrão. contudo, Microsoft não parecem ter fornecido uma maneira simples de fazer isso por enquanto. Então aqui está como ...

I’ve recently been asked to upgrade the SSD drive in an Asus eeePC 901. Rather than write about it in detail here I’ll just say that the oper­a­tion was pain­less and a great suc­cess, mostly thanks to the excel­lent guide provided at Bit­Tech

I replaced the default 4gig SSD (leav­ing the 16gig one intact) with a sim­il­ar speed 16gig drive which cost £43 from ebay
