Some more research and github.com/igrigorik/node-spdy looked promising, but it also only uses CONNECT and it's "tunneling SSL over SSL"... The search continues. I've downloaded Firefox source and looking at the "netwerk" library.

BTW I know about mitmproxy.org/ but I do not really care about "interactive". I just need something I can integrate with mod_pagespeed. Solution for Nginx would be desired, but searching Google for "Nginx proxy tls" is all about reverse proxy setup, not what I need...

Many years ago I used mod_pagespeed together with Apache as a "foward proxy" to significantly improve my mobile "web experience". I wanted to try it out this week but faced an issue - nowadays a big part of web is behind HTTPS. This is perfect, but completely breaks my use-case. I need the proxy to modify the traffic. I trust my own proxy, so how do I tell Firefox not to "CONNECT" to remote https servers and trust the proxy to do the TLS validation instead?

Commands for two-pass 480p x265+opus encode at ~1MB per minute (100k video + 32k audio + mux overhead):

$ ffmpeg -i source.avi \
-vf "scale=w=854:h=480:force_original_aspect_ratio=decrease" \
-c:v libx265 -b:v 100k -preset slow -x265-params pass=1 \
-an -f matroska -y /dev/null

$ ffmpeg -i source.avi \
-vf "scale=w=854:h=480:force_original_aspect_ratio=decrease" \
-c:v libx265 -b:v 100k -preset slow -x265-params pass=2 \
-ac 1 -c:a libopus -b:a 32k -y target.mkv

Remember 128kbit songs? What if I told you that within the same bitrate you can comfortably store 480p low-motion videos, e.g. for watching on mobile? and codecs make this possible. Looking forward to reasonable encoder to try it out too - I don't want to spend half a lifetime waiting for an encode right now..

@ChrisWere Almost a year later, after some update, maybe , the "Social Club" works, I can get past loading screen and I am able to run Max Payne 3 on at max quality and I am happy 馃檪

@Gargron what is the state of support on Mastodon? I see github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/ merged but when I try to upload a webp image, I get: "500 Error processing thumbnail for uploaded media"

I just installed and tested Facebook and WhatsApp bridges for . Finally my family won't complain about not being able to reach me *and* I don't have to install any extra apps on my phone.

Reasons someone using a PC should change from Windows to Linux?

Linux distros have more respect for your privacy.

Just run Wireshark on both Windows and Linux; you'll see that Windows loves to constantly chat with MS-servers.

Average Linux distro is completely silent until you choose to interact with the internet.

Being the product vs. using the product.

Linux gives you control & transparency. Easier and more secure usage.

Please add Your point of view if you will!
