Here's a faily simple and quick way to deal with FTP actions without the need of 1000 clicks in a FTP client like FileZilla (though this one's really great!).
Example text file:
open yourserver.org your_ftp_username your_ftp_password cd desired/path put index.htm bye
There is a very interesting article about Google's video codec VP8 written by an x264 developer called Jason Garrett-Glaser (aka Dark Shikari) which you can completely read on:
The title is "The first in-depth technical analysis of VP8".
Here are some central statements out of it:
I definitely recommend reading at least the "Addendum C: Summary for the lazy".
I just read an article related to H.264 patent licensing issues going on at the moment. There was one sentence which blew me away with truth:
"If H.264 continues to evolve and gain widespread support in the market, Mozilla may eventually have to make an impossible decision between idealism and compatibility, and we're not even going to try and predict how that one will turn out -- remember, we're having this H.264 conversation right now because it's in line to replace Flash video, which is arguably even less free and open."
I usually rename my JPG photos with the help of the Exif timestamp ("DateTimeOriginal", to be precise). It so can happen that I can't use this timestamp if I once forget setting the internal clock of my camera - because then, the timestamps aren't correct, obviously.
Exiv2 is a useful program that can quite easily change exif timestamps - among other things.
So in a nutshell, change the timestamp as follows:
exiv2 -a 00:01:00 ad test.jpg
This would add one minute to the timestamp of test.jpg. Of course you can also subtract a certain amount of time: Just write a minus sign in front of the timestamp.
Moreover, you can change the filename of a JPG according to the Exif timestamp like this:
exiv2 -r "%Y-%m-%d - %H-%M-%S - :basename:" mv test.jpg
This syntax keeps the original filename in the newly created filename.
Change some IPTC-Data as follows. Instead of Copyright there are other field names like Byline, Caption, Keywords...:
exiv2 -M "set Iptc.Application2.Copyright Some copyright message..." mo test.jpg
Display all Exif, IPTC, XMP data of the picture:
exiv2 -p a pr test.jpg
Man, today I had to rebuild my whole website because I moved it from a subfolder to this actual domain folder. After that the system somehow got confused with the new folder structure... I surely could have solved it, had I only known more about the internal PHP file structure. Well, in the end I got it working again...
I just tried deshaking a video filmed with a Panasonic Lumix TZ7 - and I succeeded!
The source video from the TZ7 is called something.mts
My steps were the following:
Well, those steps did the trick for me!
By the way, my software versions were: Virtualdub 1.9.9, Avidemux 2.5.2, Deshaker 2.4, and I worked with Windows 7.
Finally, I'm registered on twitter and trying out some of it. I'll see what good comes out of it...

Some brand new videos are online where I was playing some music alone and also with my brother. The recording took place on my birthday last saturday.

Well, doesn't seem too bad, this blog here, what do you mean? Hm....
At least this would be a possibility for me to write some things...
Yay, let's go!!!
