Re: very good news about audio conversion soft ware

 

Thats a point actually.
itunes does use gracenote if you have an i device.
You will have to convert the music to mp3, it does not do ogg or flack sadly.
However all tracks are numbered.
if you get winlame which is for now malware free at least the 2010 version is
Sadly I do think this is a dead project but it should do ogg to 500kbps mp3 to 320kbps wav, I am not sure about flack but anyway.
The other thing you can do is buy goldwave or get audacity which is free but not full with malware just yet.
Its ogg encoder has been known to have issues but who knows if its still like that now.

Re: very good news about audio conversion soft ware

 

Well they all get adds now days.
dvdvideosoft had lots of em.
A lot of these projects on sourceforge are full of malware.
I don't think sourceforge projects travel well.
audacity and 7zip are ok for the moment though.
But others have gone off the map, unless you get some big sponsors and with the echonomy situation as it has been opensource does not pay the bills.
Right now the only way to handle this is donate cash or time to whatever projects you have.
the reason audacity and 7zip are probably ok for now is because they are getting donations and maybe have large communities maybe sponsors with big pockets.
Its why we must take care of the projects we love.
Before the malware thing came in and this was a few years ago projects either stopped or just went silent.
look at draggonunpacker 5 or winlame, both are not updated in ages.
look at izarc, its full of malware now to.
Then look at things like powerarchiver, it was free now it isn't.
Point is opensource is really great, its not a lifetime fund making venture which is what I think a lot have realised and may still are realising.
Truth is that free doesn't pay the bills, adds do, malware does, spam does, scams do, actually selling it does, anything else bar free.
A good way to describe this is the free net revolution in new zealand or the rest of the world.
I know for a fact we had free net for a couple years, done off the back of big communications companies.
I know for a fact that even with advertising, quality was poor, and eventually it was not worth keeping it free, so it died.
If your project is full of malware, chances are its not getting the funds it needs.
Chances are that it may allready be dead.
Ofcause contact those that make the projects and ask them what would be needed to remove their adds, chances are you will find out that their funding is really low.
While I don't do opensource projects I do actually do university research projects and other projects for a local game company in nz.
Funding for things is a really big problem, next to getting those to do the work, projects to work on, and people to test.
Funds make it to just about every meeting with my bosses.
Its hard all round.
The net as a lot of people have realised will not make you rich, not immediately anyway and if you don't attack it the right way it won't.
Ok you can join the malware stream but while you will survive its not the way I would choose to live.
I have had people who I have listened to video casts for years suddenly have adds on their videos and sites, then they get videos and promos saying they really need cash to continue to survive.
I usually don't give it for those that put malware up since I won't use anyone that will put viruses on pcs, I do think opensourcers and those that give free software because they want to, because the net is turning away from free anything these days.

Re: very good news about audio conversion soft ware

 

Jean cdex has for a while included adds, sadly a lot of sourceforge projects are full of them.
Obviously donations are not enough.
Its why I quit the dvdvideosoft stuff because of this.
Sadly the applian stuff I heard about and brought is not accessable at least I have never been able to edit the interface for the video capcha or other converters or anything at all and it cost me a lot.
It is obvious though that unless you have youtube dl-g or pontes media which while ok can not do playlists you are prity much in the poopoo.
To much free software has opencandy related stuff with it and while you could disable it I'd have to potentially have a batch file for every install.
At the end of the day none of the free software I use is that important for me to have adds on my system and these things can screw up the system, install malware and even if they work the software in question for me has no value.
That isn't saying I don't mind software bundles especially if you can buy packaged software but a lot of programs are loaded with random stuff including uniblue stuff which is reguarded as bad so I decided ages ago to buy software.
goldwave has a good enough cd reader.
cdburner xp does my cds though I must say I did donate to it.
7zip does my zip files.
The only free apps I have that for now are not full of software are the old winlame and audacity.
Which I hardly use either.
Thing is if any app above had a buy link so I don't get adds I would, some of them I did use a lot but oh well its life I guess someone needs to make cash somehow I just wish that malware was not the way.
Sadly I do know some sourceforge projects have died so opensource is not everyone's cup of tea either.
Nothing is for free I just don't want to get dammaged in the process of free.
Even java and codecguide have adds now but at least you can turn them off.
I have unchecky installed in all my computers now though.

Re: NVDA still freezing, don't know what the deal is

Also, I wonder if you can remove the Braille tables that are provided and put in tables from an older version of NVDA.  I don't know anything about this but again, this might be a topic of value that someone else might discuss here or that you might be able to discuss with developers.

Maybe it's good that you tried a snapshot.  You may have comments that would be of value to developers.  I believe there is a developers list or perhaps a way to leave comments for developers on the web site but someone else will have to comment on that further.

...What HAPPENED to the espeak voice? It sounds choppy and distorted (at least Linda does) and it was honestly hurting my ears.


And the Master snapshot doesn't have the braille table I'd prefer to use, which is why I got that other snapshot when I did. The newer more experimental table fixed the problem of emdashes being replaced by eight cells of nonsense that took up more space than necessary, and formatting representations, and missed contractions...


I can't use this.

I believe the new production version will be released in about a month.  However, I would expect the master snapshot to be probably stable or reasonably stable.  You can use a portable version if you want to evaluate it without installing it.  I haven't used new snapshots fir a while but my experience in the past has been that the snapshots I've used have been stable.  That doesn't mean that they all are.  They are versions still in development and not beta tested.

Hi,


The reason the driver was still trying to do something was that I had
used the old snapshot I had in conjunction with my display to read for a
bit, then had disconnected the display without resetting the "display"
setting in Braille Settings to "No Braille". As I said, it lasted
longer, but still locked up at the most inconvenient time...


Can I have a link to this master snapshot? And is this building toward
the next release or are some things not ready for that yet? If the
former, when is the next release? Is it some time this month, or next?

Re: very good news about audio conversion soft ware

Goodness gracious, yall! Why not just use ITunes to rip for crying out loud! Is it mainly because ITunes doesn't support the formats you all wanna rip into? If so, then OK, point taken, but otherwise... really?

Re: NVDA still freezing, don't know what the deal is

Maybe it's good that you tried a snapshot.  You may have comments that would be of value to developers.  I believe there is a developers list or perhaps a way to leave comments for developers on the web site but someone else will have to comment on that further.

...What HAPPENED to the espeak voice? It sounds choppy and distorted (at least Linda does) and it was honestly hurting my ears.


And the Master snapshot doesn't have the braille table I'd prefer to use, which is why I got that other snapshot when I did. The newer more experimental table fixed the problem of emdashes being replaced by eight cells of nonsense that took up more space than necessary, and formatting representations, and missed contractions...


I can't use this.

I believe the new production version will be released in about a month.  However, I would expect the master snapshot to be probably stable or reasonably stable.  You can use a portable version if you want to evaluate it without installing it.  I haven't used new snapshots fir a while but my experience in the past has been that the snapshots I've used have been stable.  That doesn't mean that they all are.  They are versions still in development and not beta tested.

Hi,


The reason the driver was still trying to do something was that I had
used the old snapshot I had in conjunction with my display to read for a
bit, then had disconnected the display without resetting the "display"
setting in Braille Settings to "No Braille". As I said, it lasted
longer, but still locked up at the most inconvenient time...


Can I have a link to this master snapshot? And is this building toward
the next release or are some things not ready for that yet? If the
former, when is the next release? Is it some time this month, or next?

Re: very good news about audio conversion soft ware

 

Well cdex and a few other programs I use to use are full of opencandy stuff.
you can add /nocandy to the end of the install string to get past the adds.
However for an extracter I spent 40 bucks on goldwave which has a cd reader and accesses freecddb like nero 6 used to do.
While not as good as gracenote and while tracks are not numbered freecddb gets them most of the time unless its vary new or old.

The last time I tried getting a new version of CDEX it had all kinds of
malware attached to it that it wanted to install. After rejecting about
7 screens of this junk, I aborted the install and am just keeping the
version of CDex I currently have. It works just fine for me.

Well, I just tried running it, and after the standard stuff about licensing and where and what components to install, then it went into its routine of asking me to install this, that, and the other thing. At the 3rd screen of and the other thing, I bailed out of the install. Sorry, it's still plagued with attached malware.

In case the site doesn't throw a fit, and prevent hot linking, here is the direct link for the latest installer, though it's easy enough to follow links on the website to get to it anyway:

Did it just do a clean install, or did it keep asking you to install this, that and the other thing? If not, then this is good news and I'll try this newest one.

Re: NVDA still freezing, don't know what the deal is

...What HAPPENED to the espeak voice? It sounds choppy and distorted (at least Linda does) and it was honestly hurting my ears.


And the Master snapshot doesn't have the braille table I'd prefer to use, which is why I got that other snapshot when I did. The newer more experimental table fixed the problem of emdashes being replaced by eight cells of nonsense that took up more space than necessary, and formatting representations, and missed contractions...


I can't use this.

I believe the new production version will be released in about a month.  However, I would expect the master snapshot to be probably stable or reasonably stable.  You can use a portable version if you want to evaluate it without installing it.  I haven't used new snapshots fir a while but my experience in the past has been that the snapshots I've used have been stable.  That doesn't mean that they all are.  They are versions still in development and not beta tested.

Hi,


The reason the driver was still trying to do something was that I had
used the old snapshot I had in conjunction with my display to read for a
bit, then had disconnected the display without resetting the "display"
setting in Braille Settings to "No Braille". As I said, it lasted
longer, but still locked up at the most inconvenient time...


Can I have a link to this master snapshot? And is this building toward
the next release or are some things not ready for that yet? If the
former, when is the next release? Is it some time this month, or next?

Re: very good news about audio conversion soft ware

It did a very clean install.  The program never asked me to install any thing at all.

Re: very good news about audio conversion soft ware

Kwork
 

For me, it did a clean install. I do have unchecki installed, but it didn't tell me it blocked anything, and I didn't see anything odd being installed at the same time. Of course I'll scan and check for viruses and malware, but the problems that have plagued previous installers seem to have not been present for me with this one.
In case the site doesn't throw a fit, and prevent hot linking, here is the direct link for the latest installer, though it's easy enough to follow links on the website to get to it anyway:

Thanks Gene! Downloading now. :D

I believe the new production version will be released in about a month.  However, I would expect the master snapshot to be probably stable or reasonably stable.  You can use a portable version if you want to evaluate it without installing it.  I haven't used new snapshots fir a while but my experience in the past has been that the snapshots I've used have been stable.  That doesn't mean that they all are.  They are versions still in development and not beta tested.

Hi,


The reason the driver was still trying to do something was that I had
used the old snapshot I had in conjunction with my display to read for a
bit, then had disconnected the display without resetting the "display"
setting in Braille Settings to "No Braille". As I said, it lasted
longer, but still locked up at the most inconvenient time...


Can I have a link to this master snapshot? And is this building toward
the next release or are some things not ready for that yet? If the
former, when is the next release? Is it some time this month, or next?

Re: very good news about audio conversion soft ware

erik burggraaf <erik@...>
 

Actually, flac support could be built into 1.5 in a number of ways, but it was in 1.7 natively.  The only drawback to the native support is that it only went to flac level 8.  If the new one goes to flac level 16, that would be a huge bonus.

Best,

Re: very good news about audio conversion soft ware

erik burggraaf <erik@...>
 

based on what I'm reading from the home page, windows 10 support is the major selling point along with upgrades to various encoders, localizations, improvements to tagging support, and something they describe simply and repeatedly as "bug fixes".  No actual feature improvements though I can only think of a few minor detales I would like changed or added.

Did it just do a clean install, or did it keep asking you to install this, that and the other thing? If not, then this is good news and I'll try this newest one.

Re: very good news about audio conversion soft ware

I wouldn't doubt it at all that there might be malware attached to this. The last time I tried getting a new version of CDEX it had all kinds of malware attached to it that it wanted to install. After rejecting about 7 screens of this junk, I aborted the install and am just keeping the version of CDex I currently have. It works just fine for me.

but even the unchecky information from the developer says that unchecky doesn't know about everything.  Using unchecky can protect you from a good deal of potentially unwanted programs.  It doesn't give you license to indiscriminately install anything.  You still should use caution and good practices.

It may simply be one more case of a free program now incorporating potentially unwanted programs in it, which is becoming increasingly frequent.  Whatever the case, is there any reason to use the new program?  those who have used it might be able to advise if anything has been added that matters.

Uh oh.  That's the official site.  For sure.  When I went to the old site http://cdexos.sourceforge.net it redirected me to that cdex.nu site which looks exactly like the old cdex source forge site.  Maybe our hopes are dashed and the entire project has been highjacked?  It's been at least 10 years since the last upgrade as far as I know.

Hi,


You might want to be careful about getting software from this site.  I too have used cdex for many years and wanted to ghet the new version.  However, when I clicked on the link Sophos stopped my browser and said that some mal ware had been found on that site.


I am now pondering whether or not I want to get it from there.

New website address as well:

Do not use filehipo or some other third party source like that or you will risk your computer getting extras you didn't ask for.

I just wanted to tell you all about an old converter and cd reader called c dex.  Cdex is the fastest audio converter and they just came out with a new version today.  You can get this progran at filehippo.com.  Let me know what you think of it when you get it.

What antimalware programs are you using.  If people are going to report and compare experiences, it is important to know what programs are being used and whether any of them have real time protection that is running.

no our hopes are not dashed at all because I just got the new version.  The new version is cdex version 1.81.  I never got a message about malware.  I have the program and it works very well and faster than the older versions.
