Smplayer is my fav player for linux.

Other / AV1 Video Playback funky
« on: April 29, 2023, 01:19:46 PM »
Got a funky one for you, may be simple too.

Playing back any videos with the AV1 video format flickers / skips heavily when using just about anything but VLC to play it.

Sound playback is fine in all the media players though.

Using kernel 6.3, tried other kernels with same thing.

System should be PLENTY fast to do av1 playback (not even encoding).

System Specs:

CPU:  Intel 13600K
Mobo:  ASRock Z790 Riptide
RAM:  32GB DDR5 6400
GPU:  AMD 6950
Sound Card:  Asus Strix Raid

On Topic / Security Keys Like Yubikey and such
« on: April 29, 2023, 09:32:51 AM »
Curious if anybody else uses a hardware based security key for linux and other things for mfa stuffs?

I'm not talking about the 2fa programs on the phones but actual hardware keys like Yubikey and such.

I just bought the Yubikey 5c NFC and its fantastic!

Fooling around with it right now.

Thanks for the heads up.  I'm in no rush.  Just curious.

Off Topic / New Thunderbird v9x?
« on: November 07, 2021, 05:21:58 PM »
Just curious if I should just download this from the thunderbird website or wait for LL to update their package to the 9x version.

It has a ton of new exchange, and webdav/caldav/etc... sync things in it which is useful for me.

Should have this strange device in within a day or 2 and will be attempting to put linux lite on it.

I'll let you know how it turns out or any questions as I am not a linux expert but can hobble around better in linux than I was last year :D

They do have an Ubunut image to put on it but rather put LL on it.

I bought the i7 model.

Easiest way is to open up a terminal and type this in.

sudo apt install skypeforlinux

Replace it with a real SSD drive.  Those hybrid drives are weird.

On Topic / TLP for Laptops in Tweaks still recommended?
« on: May 24, 2021, 08:34:49 AM »
I'm curious if TLP is still recommended to be installed on laptops?

Older or newer or one or neither anymore?

PDF Studio

Fantastic scanning / PDF program for linux.

Full suite like Adobe Acrobat (not the reader). 

There really is no competition to it just yet.

On Topic / Lenovo 13 AMD Laptop works flawlessly!
« on: May 23, 2021, 10:39:16 AM »
Just a heads up.  I get a lot of laptops in my shop and its hard to find one that works 100% or almost 100% with linux right off the bat.

Just wanted to let you know that the Lenovo 13 AMD Ryzen 4750 Pro works flawlessly with LL.

Even some of the dell ones they say are fully compatible are not but this beast is.

Sound / Weird Sound Internitent Issue
« on: April 09, 2021, 09:43:06 PM »
I have a very weird intermittent sound issue.

When I play youtube no issues at all.  Sound plays without interuption.

When using smplayer or clementine or anything else I get very intermitent sound.  It stops every so often.  Then if I go to a youtube page and play it plays great.  Then go back to smplayer or whatever else and it starts playing for about 20-30 seconds then stops again.  Then I hit play on youtube and stop it for a second.  Then it works on the other programs for a random ammout of time again.

Very weird.

Sound Card: Creative AE7
