MultiMedia Applications

Multimedia applications are those programs that integrate more than one media at a time; browsers are the most obvious. However, the term has come to include the use of programs that enable the use of any component that isn’t simple text and static graphics, such as audio, video, animation, virtual reality, conferencing and monitoring.

Saw a youtube link (which I've now misplaced) that Bluestack software could
replace VCE exam dumps player:

I've installed it on my Windows but doesn't seem to find any option that could play it.
Anyone knows?  Or any other freeware player to play VCE dumps on Windows (not
for Android)?

flicker how to make album and photstream privagte only to me

I tried below steps

Method 7 Flickr Desktop - Batch-editing Photos in an Album
Select “You”.
Click “Albums”.
Click on the album you want to edit.
Select “Edit in Organizer”. ...
Select “Batch Edit” the “Change Permissions”.
Choose “Only you (private)”.
Allow your friends and/or family to see your images. ...
Click “Change Permissions”.

It showed progress bar 100% and said thanks which make me think it is done

but when i go back it is still showing as public instead of private

how to make all my albums private rather than exposing them to entire world

also how to make my videos under photostream private

i wasted already 3 hours on this excersise but not solution yet

above link says it cannot be done

"when I went back to the set in organizr, they were still marked as private."

You can't check the permissions in Organizer. It will only ever show you your account default setting.

also how to make auto uploader on my cell phone and windows desktop/laptop to make all photos automatically uploaded as private rather than public?

Please advise
Help configure a video editing rig for Windows most  likely using Adobe Premier. I am looking at the Dell precision and the budget is in $2,500 t o $3,000ish range. I would appreciate reasons for any recommendations that get added on to to this or another brand/option.

I have already checked the specs from Adobe for minimum requirements but real world experience  here will really help.  I know you can keep throwing  money at memory and other hardware and rendering videos takes up a lot of resources. At some point there must be diminishing returns though.
There is a Google app that can be used on a phone whereby someone speaks English and the interpretation can be in Spanish and shows on the screen.

There is also a physical device on Amazon where you can type English and Spanish version appears on the screen.

What we need is a technical device or app that lets us speak English through a small microphone attached to our shirt and the Spanish version of what we say is shown on an overhead large screen.

Need more brain power than I have to get it done.
I would like to recognize sounds within an audio stream.  For instance, a doorbell.
Basically it would be the equivalent to using OpenCV to identify a face within a video stream.
So I am looking for the equivalent of an OpenCV library for audio (rather than images/video).  Or perhaps some cloud-based solution -- although I have not see anything on AWS or Azure.
This is my command: vlc --width=1920 --height=1375 --video-x=0 --video-y=1175 video.mp4 --no-video-deco --no-embedded-video

No matter what I change the --width= setting to, it doesn't make any difference. The video window is always the same (very large. Am I missing something? I'm using version VLC 3.0.2 for Windows.
I am looking for a way to automatically run a MP4 or MOV video file every 15 minutes on my tv while it is playing live tv.  I am not sure how it would work, maybe there is a device that can run a scheduler to automatically interrupt live tv with my video file every 15 minutes or maybe some software running on a computer that is attached to the tv?  The other issue is how to automatically change the input of the tv to show my video and then go back to the live broadcast input when done?  I hope I have explained this clearly enough.  Please ask me questions if you need to.  Thank you very much for any help with this.
I am working on this program from last 4 days. But still I can't find any solution.
I want to create a organizer program. Which will be move images from one folder to another.
So here is my Code.
    import os , shutil
    path = open(r"/home/ironman/Desktop/lists.txt","r+")
    save_name = open("/home/ironman/Desktop/files.txt","w+")
    insp = ['inspiration', 'motivational']
    names =['girls','fitness','women','girl','Kids','friend','life','gym','exam','daily','religious','swami']
    for file in path:
        for Folder , SubFolder , Files in os.walk(file.strip()):
            for files in Files:
                ff = os.path.join(file, files)
                x = os.path.abspath(files)

                for sr in insp:
                    if files.endswith(".jpg") and sr in files:

                        global full_path
                        if not os.path.isdir('/home/ironman/Pictures/'+sr):
                            os.mkdir('/home/ironman/Pictures/'+ sr)
                    for filename in names:
                        full_path = ("/home/ironman/Pictures/%s" % sr)
                        if filename in files:
                            src = os.path.join(full_path,files)
                            srt = os.path.join(full_path,filename)
                            if not os.path.isdir(srt):

I have a lot of photo and movie files in our company. I would like to setup a server where our employees can login to, and find & download media files.
These should be cataloged in groups and contain metadata.
Does such a webserver exist which I can setup upon a Ubuntu server (or Windows server) ?
I prefer open source, but if we need to buy one, this should be no problem is it is affordable. No monthly subscription.

I am more looking for suggestions.  We are a portable church, meaning we setup and tear down every week, but we have use of multiple rooms in a building.  We want to be able to "stream" our service from the main auditorium to another location in the building.  I was planning on doing this via Facebook Live, but there are those above me that do not want to do this.  They prefer to keep it local, meaning we have the camera and we stream it internally.  I have access to physical cabling, so I could set this up to at least run over a network, but can anyone provide me some guidance on how I would "stream" without putting it on the internet?
Hi All,

I am using 6 Sonos speakers in multiple rooms at the same floor.
There are 2 accespoints with the same channel and same SSID .

When one accespoints is online the most 2 far removed speakers stutter sometimes or loses connection, the other speakers wont stutter or lose connection when this happends.

If I connect both accespoints then only 1 or 2 speakers keep working while it has the same configuration as the other accespoint.

I tried several things like changing the channels or disable mesh encryption but Sonos keeps failing.

I searched online for multiple options but it seems a lot of people have issues with the Sonos speakers with multiple accespoints in the same configuration.

Does anyone here know a solution so i can use all my Sonos speakers at once over 2 accespoints?

Kind Regards,

I can't seem to play Blu Ray discs on the my laptop anymore.  I pop them in and nada,  Toshiba Blu Ray Disc player opens but nothing after that it just wont play it.  had this before But can't remember how I fixed it. I think its a codec issue.  how can I update it?

It's Win 7 64-bit Toshiba Qosmio X870  laptop.    toshiba blu ray disc player

I don't want to buy a new player either.  

says this in the manual  

6.2 AACS Key Update
AACS key is essential part of Blu-ray disc playback, new AACS key is required when old AACS key expired. When that happens, Player will prompt to download new key from internet. Please make sure your PC is connected to internet at that time.
If old key is used, new release Blu-ray title may not play in your player.
It is highly recommended to download new AACS key to keep playability of your player.

How can I do that never seen a popup for one.  constantly connected to the internet as well..

What services can be restarted in Windows 7 if audio fails when joining a WebEx
conference? My system audio for mic and speakers tend to work fine for Zoom meeting
and Skype. WebEx has had problems and I have to have it call my cell phone instead of
just using the headphones on the laptop.
I have a video clip that is 15 seconds long. (film grain) stock footage. My goal is to overlay this (film grain stock footage that is 15 seconds long) over another video that is ..lets say 2 minutes long. I would like to know, in Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2018 how do I adjust the length of the 15 seconds video clip to 2 minutes long, without adjusting the speed? I would like to keep the speed the same but only adjust the length of the video clip to something longer. Can this be done in Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2018? I remember VEGAS doing this so easily.
I know this is a long-obsolete utility but DVD Shrink v3.2 is still a very good utility for shrinking the size of a DVD.   I've used it for at least 15 years, and it works perfectly on all versions of Windows, up to and including the latest build of Win 10.

HOWEVER ... as I've moved it from machine to machine over the years, it always got faster at the process of shrinking a DVD.    Things that used to take close to two hours (on a P-IV) evolved to where they'd take less than 10 minutes on later CPU's.    For example, one DVD I tested takes ~ 14 min to shrink on an i5-2500; but only about 9 min on an i7-4770; and 7 minutes on an i7-6770.   BUT on a brand new build I just did with an 8th gen CPU (6 core i7-8700) that same DVD takes ~ 35 minutes to shrink !!    Looking at the core temps & utilization, it is clearly only using one core on this CPU, whereas it has always used all of the cores available on the previous generations.     I've confirmed the affinity is set to all cores are available; and set the priority of the task as high as possible ("real time"), but all to no avail.    It simply uses one core with this CPU.    This is the first CPU I've used it on with more than 4 cores -- I don't know if that has some impact on it or not, but even if it's limited to 4 cores, I'd expect it to at least use 4 of the cores.    

I suspect that's simply "the way it is" -- and clearly there's no support for this program anymore, but I'm just curious if anyone has any ideas as to…
Recently I got this installed & it worked ( one day). Tried it today, can't get it to work. I change tv input ( on the cable remote)  to HDMI. DOESN't stick. Remote from firestick doesn't respond,

What do I have to do to make this work?

I have a trouble with Dolby Voice from BT , the below error appears and couldn't  do the meeting :
can't conntect to meeting there are issues with the network connection to avoid missing your meeting, please join by phone BT Meetme Dolby

I was wondering if they is a media player that support multi instances which I can open each instance with a different settings.
What I am trying to do is to open for example VLC player over and over but each time with a different audio playback device - but it  always opens it with the last saved settings...Tried some more players and they work the same

Is there a player that support this? or is there a parameter to define maybe via command line to open each instance with a different audio setting?

I’m looking to either buy or make a very simple screen that can be controlled over the internet.

The screen will serve one simple purpose... show whether an office is VACANT or ENGAGED (i won’t go into the reason we need this :-)

Unfortunately a simple paper flip sign will not suffice.

I’m not even sure what to search for on the internet. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hi everybody,

We currently have a student led live feed that runs in the morning and then at the close of school.  We are using a sony camcorder on a tripod that takes the input from a mic that the kids use and then a logitech webcam that captures the video.  We send these to a laptop running VNC and stream the production to the classrooms via vnc over the LAN.  I know this is a crappy setup, but it works.  We are looking for something more reliable and user friendly.  Possibly even having it streamed over the internet so parents can watch.  Does anyone have any experience or suggestions to accomplish something like this?
Is there any recommended /trusted software to manage contacts/ photos/ files for Oppo handphone?

I need to transfer those files from a PC to a Oppo handphone.

Thank you.
We use a Sony Handycam camcorder to record amateur sports team matches.

We have been using the software that has come with this camcorder called PlayMemories Home to merge these videos together.

This was done on a Windows 10 PC.

The problem is that we have experienced a lot of problems trying to merge videos together using the PlayMemories Home software.

This software does not seem to work with merging videos if the formats of videos are different.

What would you recommend as a better product than the Sony PlayMemories Home software for merging videos.

hi techs,
I am trying to play videos and pictures from my Note 5 to my Apple TV and suddenly it's not working in the last one year or so. The last time at work successfully was about a year ago and I was using allcast.  this week I've been trying to connect my phone again and no matter what I try my Note 5 will not detect the Apple TV and if some of the apps do list it it will not connect. I also tried my work Android phone which is I think an S7 and it wouldn't connect either. I have reset the network connections several times on both units and tried repeatedly with no success. I'm starting to wonder if Apple has made a change that everybody but me knows about. at this point what I think I'm going to do is buy the Chromecast and plug that in right alongside the Apple TV to see if I can use that to interface with my phone since all of the apps I've downloaded aren't working at all. My Note 5 is up-to-date with the most recent software and the Apple TV is also up-to-date with the most recent software and it is only about one year old. Any assistance with this issue is appreciated.
 thank you
