The thing

Hello! I'd like to suggest The thing is considered for sysop status. His contributions have lots of reverts to previous versions (ie, spam removed), and this task is a million times easier with the ability to rollback pages. His user page is a bit strange, but other than that he's doing a great job. --H2g2bob 16:32, 28 May 2006 (CEST)

Well, uh of course I 2nd that. The thing 18:40, 28 May 2006 (CEST)
Done :) Thanks for the help -- Dionoea 21:20, 2 June 2006 (CEST)

Google map

I know you posted ages ago (sorry, was doing my dissertation like a crazy fool over easter) but if you still want to add me to Google map thing, I'm at:

<marker username="h2g2bob" fullname="David Batley" location="Exeter, UK" blurb="" lat="50.749056" lon="-3.530045" title="Developer"/>

I can't edit /team/team.xml myself - no SVN access :( It's interesting to see how many Europeans there are. Plus Xtophe is just (well 100km) down the road - how cool! --h2g2bob 18:08, 24 April 2007 (CEST)

Done. Thanks. Dionoea 18:05, 30 April 2007 (CEST)



On Demuxdump the following example is given :

vlc :demux=dump :demuxdump-file=output.mp3

You say that the ":" syntax is correct (by the way I didn't get anything out of you explantion in the Edit page). If it is, then can you explain to me why this actually does not work on my mac:

vlc :demux=dump :demuxdump-file=output.mp3

giving the following errors:

[00000278] access_http access: Raw-audio server found, mp3 demuxer selected
[00000281] demuxdump demuxer: dumping raw stream to file `/Volumes/Proton/output.mp3'
[00000281] demuxdump demuxer: closing /Volumes/Proton/output.mp3 (0 Kbytes dumped)
libdvdnav: Using dvdnav version 0.2.0cvs from
libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.9 for DVD access
libdvdread: Can't stat demuxdump-file=output.mp3
No such file or directory
libdvdnav: vm: failed to open/read the DVD
[00000283] main input error: no suitable access module for `:demuxdump-file=output.mp3'
[00000271] main playlist: nothing to play

while this one works:

vlc --demux=dump --demuxdump-file=output.mp3


Editing Guidelines

Hi Dionea! Sorry for that one. I just oversaw the Editing Guidelines. As I've got some spare time the next month, I'd love to contribute to VLC. As I'm (by now) not that good a coder, I thought I'd start with the wiki (which is a rather easy field). So, are there any tasks which are of high priority? Also, as I'm not that very familiar with the inner workings VLC, is there any particular developer I can contact when I stumble upon something I don't understand (j-b?)?
