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..

@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!

I find it very interesting that people on Mastodon seem to prefer showing their support by boosting something rather than favoring it.

I'm not sure what that says about us. Maybe that sharing really is caring.

Either way, I'm here for it. Keep up those boosts all you lovely people.

my dog disconnected the cable to my server again and search was not working... It's actually just @$SOMEONE@people.kernel.org

Does anyone have a simple guide on how to follow some folks on people.kernel.org/ on Mastodon? Is it even supported?

The downside of this approach that you a) create a lot of interfaces on the server (one per connected device) and b) waste half of the IPs on server point-to-point addresses. That said, even a measly /24 is more than enough for me.
