Trying to learn machine by reading from TensorFlow code examples on the internet is like trying to learn databases from various office worker's Excel spreadsheets.

#Lua people! Today I got curious about which versions people use.

So here's an unscientific, unofficial census as a Google Form:

No registration required! Just click which Lua version(s) you use. I'll share results here.

Please RT for reach!

Some more research and 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 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 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.
