In dit 2de deel gaan we verder door de audio te importeren in Virtualdub. Het eerste deel vind je hier terug.
2.2 Audio importeren

We kiezen voor “Audio -> Audio from other file…” en selecteren het aangemaakte mp3 bestand. In het daaropvolgende dialoogvenster selecteren we “Autodetect”.


Opgelet !

Het kan zijn dat je onderstaande melding krijgt:

 

 

 

 

 

In dat geval is er nog geen mp3 encoder geïnstalleerd.

We kiezen voor de Lame mp3 encoder, dewelke je op volgende manieren installeert:

Windows Xp

  1. Extract het zip bestand
  2. rechtsklik op het bestand LameACM.inf en selecteer installeren

Windows Vista/7

  1. Extract het zipbestand naar een locatie bv; C:\lame
  2. Zorg dat je een commandprompt als administrator start en geef het volgende in:

32bit:

rundll32.exe setupapi.dll,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 0 c:\lame\LameACM.inf

64bit:

C:\Windows\SysWOW64\rundll32.exe setupapi.dll,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 0 c:\lame\LameACM.inf


2.3 Video instellingen – filter

Nadat de audio in orde is gebracht moeten we nog een paar wijzigingen doen aan het beeld. We beginnen met een filter.

Kies “Video” en zorg dat “Full processing mode” aangeduid is, waarna de keuze “Filters” beschikbaar wordt.

Hier kiezen we voor de filter “Border-control. Je kan deze installeren door de het bestand BrdCntrl235.vdf afkomstig uit het vdfilterpack te plaatsen in de plugin folder van Virtualdub.

We stellen in dat de border aan al de kanten 10 pixels groot mag zijn. (Dit om eventuele ruis te bedekken).

Uiteraard kan je nog veel meer filters toepassen zoals ruisonderdrukking, verbeteren van analoge beelden, kleur, contrast enz. In dit gedeelte focus ik mij enkel op een basis gebruik van filters en compressie.

2.4  Video instellingen – compressie

We gaan verder met de volgende stap: klik op “Video – > Compression”, indien je x264vfw correct hebt geïnstalleerd dan zie je die in de lijst staan. Klik erop en kies “Configure” .

Een scherm met een aantal opties komt nu tevoorschijn, het eerste wat je doet is in het “Rate control” dropdown menu  kiezen voor “Multipass – 1st pass”

Multipass codering betekent dat de compressor meerdere keren kijkt naar de video, zodat het beter zou weten waar en wanneer er in je video een hogere of lagere bitrate toegewezen moet worden.

Bijvoorbeeld: een scène met veel beweging en intense actie zou  een hogere bitrate  vereisen  dan een donkere scene  met weinig aan de hand.  Tijdens de 1e pas zal de compressor aantekeningen maken en deze bevindingen in een. Stats-bestand plaatsen. Bij de de 2e poging zal de echte codering beginnen en aan de hand van het .stats bestand de bitrates goed zetten.

Over de bitrates: ik kies hier persoonlijk voor 2000.

De rest van de instellingen mag je zo overnemen. Bij een mouse-over van een element krijg je een woordje uitleg.

2.5 Alles aan het werk

Klik op “File -> Save as Avi

Geef een bestandsnaam op en wacht totdat de eerste pass (analyse) klaar is. Nadien ga je terug naar ” Video – > Compression ->  x264vfw -> Configure”.

Selecteer Multipass – N-pass (ook voor zorgen dat de stats file locatie overeenkomt met die van de 1ste pass) en vervolgens weer “File -> Save as Avi“.

3. Besluit

In slechts een paar stappen hebben we onze analoge video omgezet naar een digitaal formaat. Zoals meermaals gezegd kan je met allerhande filters de beeldkwaliteit van de video serieus verbeteren zodat het materiaal als nieuw lijkt. Voor meer informatie omtrent werken met filters verwijs ik graag naar www.doom9.org

 

Iedereen heeft ze nog wel liggen, de befaamde 8mm video cassettes, ofte Hi8 genoemd.

In dit eerste deel laat ik zien met welke software ik de analoge beelden opneem en  het geluid uit het videobestand extract voor wat aanpassingen.

Mijn eerste probleem was het materiaal dat ik ter beschikking had om dit te verwezenlijken. Mijn gebruikte sony camera (de  CCD-TR713E) beschikt enkel over een A/V uitgang, oftewel de bekende rood-wit-geel/zwarte tulp aansluitingen.

Om dit probleem te overbruggen schafte ik mij een Logilink aan dewelke mij toeliet om de camera te verbinden met de computer.

Gebruikte software

  1. Dscaler
  2. Virtualdub
  3. Virtualdub plugin: Bordercontrol
  4. x264vfw compressie plugin
  5. Audacity

 

Allereerst zorgen we ervoor dat onze werkomgeving klaargezet wordt.

We sluiten onze camera aan op de pc en zorgen dat het beeld zichtbaar wordt op het scherm.

1. Dscaler

Quote van Dscaler website:

The DScaler TV Viewing Application (also known as DScaler 4) is a piece of software that captures video, processes it, and scales it for presentation on a projector or computer monitor. DScaler implements highly sophisticated algorithms that work in real-time to provide PC owners with image quality matched only by very expensive equipment.

DScaler performs a variety of functions:

  • Grabbing video from a DVD player, game console, laserdisc, or VCR in a reliable fashion, in either analog or digital form
  • Deinterlacing video source, such as sports and news produced with a video camera, as well as console games
  • Detecting and removing 2:2 pulldown (PAL) and 3:2 pulldown (NTSC) for movies and filmed television programs
  • Reducing video noise on analog sources
  • Automatically calibrating video capture cards for optimal brightness, contrast and color
    Manipulating video through gamma, sharpness and other filters
  • Viewing still images
  • Reducing judder and other video timing anomalies
  • Presenting all of the above in the desired resolution and aspect ratio.

Na het opstarten van Dscaler controleren  we of onze video herkent wordt, alsook of de output goed staat. We kiezen hier voor PAL_B. Standaard kan het zijn dat dit op NTSC staat.

Dit doen we door in het menu “Sources – > gewenst device” aan te duiden

 

en bij “Dshow -> Video Standard -> Pal_B”
bij “Resolution -> 720×576”

Pal_B settings

We spelen nu onze video af en controleren of het beeld wel degelijk klopt. Nu moeten we alleen dit beeld nog zien te bewaren zodat het bewerkt kan worden in Virtualdub.

We doen dit als volgt:

In het menu “Actions -> Recording -> Options” stellen we in waar de video bewaard moet worden, alsook welke compressie etc toegepast wordt. We kiezen voor uncompressed.

Ook kiezen we van welke geluidsbron opgenomen moet worden.

Een beetje uitleg over de gebruikte instellingen.

Recording Format:  YUY2

Quote Virtualdub:

Two common YCbCr FOURCCs are UYVY and YUY2. They are interleaved, meaning that all YCbCr components are stored in one stream. Chroma (color) information is stored at half horizontal resolution compared to luma, with chroma samples located on top of the left luma sample of each pair; luma range is 16-235 and chroma range is 16-240. The formats are named after the byte order, so for UYVY it is U (Cb), Y (luma 1), V (Cr), Y (luma 2), whereas the luma and chroma bytes are swapped for YUY2 — Y/U/Y/V.

On Windows, it seems that YUY2 is the more common of the two formats — Avisynth and Huffyuv prefer it, the MPEG-1 decoder lists it first, etc. Most hardware is also capable of using both formats. Ordinarily I would consider supporting only YUY2, except that the Adaptec Gamebridge device I recently acquired only supports UYVY. Now, when working with these formats in regular CPU based code, the distinction between these formats is minimal, as permuting the indices is sufficient to accommodate both. (In VirtualDub, conversion between UYVY and YUY2 is lossless.) When working with vector units, however, the difference between them can become problematic.

Quote htforum.nl:

YUV comes in two basic flavors: packed and planar.

In packed the Y (brightness), U (aka: Cb = Chroma blue) and V (aka: Cr = Chroma red) samples are packed together into macropixels that are stored in a single array. Planar YUV formats store them in separate arrays. What about Chroma green? That’s calculated from the Y, U and V channels.

Both YUY2 and UYVY are packed YUV formats and are most often both available in codecs that use either. The main difference is that YUY2 has a slightly different component ordering within the UY_INT32 macropixel.

Both also use a 4:2:2 “colorspace”, meaning that in a 720 wide frame there are 720 brightness samples and 360 color samples, with Cr and Cb being spread across each pair of horizontal pixels. The vertical pixels are all at full resolution. These sample spacings are called the fourCC’s “sample periods” and they are given for each sample in both the horizontal and vertical planes.

This basically means that the B&W samples are at the frames full resolution while the color samples are spread across 2 horizontal pixels. Since the eye is more sentitive to B&W than color this cuts the video data rate with little visible loss while maintaining a high level of “edit-ability”.

In terms of MPEG encoders UYVY is the second most popular YUV format used after YV12, but they don’t use 4:2:2 as an output colorspace. 4:2:0 is the order of the day for that, but how that’s organized is a whole other post.

Bottom line: there is very little, if any, practical difference between the two.

Aangezien de meeste videobewerking via YUV zal gebeuren, kiezen we voor dit formaat om zo weinig mogelijk te verliezen bij een bewerking. Ook zorgen we voor geen compressie om zo “raw” mogelijke data verkrijgen.

Voor de video resolutie zijn er 2 gewenste mogelijkheden:

  1. 720×576 25fps in PAL of
  2. 720×480 29.97fps in NTSC formaat.

We kiezen voor het dvd formaat van 720×576 en sluiten de instellingen af.

Nadien drukken we op play op de camera en zorgen via de toetscombinatie “Shift-R”  dat de opname opgenomen wordt.

Na een poosje krijgen we het videobestand dat de volgende eigenschappen heeft volgens MediaInfo:

Merk op dat bij Audio er 2 channels zijn, later in Audacity zul je zien dat er slecht 1 audio kanaal is (het rechtse), terwijl het linkse gewoon lichte ruis bevat.

2. Virtualdub

Quote van virtualdub site:

VirtualDub is a video capture/processing utility for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows platforms (98/ME/NT4/2000/XP/Vista/7), licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL). It lacks the editing power of a general-purpose editor such as Adobe Premiere, but is streamlined for fast linear operations over video. It has batch-processing capabilities for processing large numbers of files and can be extended with third-party video filters. VirtualDub is mainly geared toward processing AVI files, although it can read (not write) MPEG-1 and also handle sets of BMP images.

Dmv van Virtualdub kunnen we de video inladen en bewerkingen doen zoals knippen, geluid extracten, filters toepassen en compressie.

Virtualdub gebruik ik hier voor 2 bewerkingen:

  1. – audio extracten en bewerken met audacity om een stereo spoor te creëren
  2. – borderplugin en compressie toepassen

2.1 Audio extracten

Via “File -> Open video file”  en “File -> Save wave…” gaan we onze audio scheiden van de video en importeren in Audacity.

Wanneer dit bestand geïmporteerd is dan merken we dat er wel een stereospoor aanwezig, maar enkel langs 1 kanaal. Dit gaan we dus aanpassen.

We klikken op het pijltje naast “Dscaler – “ en kiezen voor “Stereospoor splitsen”. We kunnen dan het bovenste kanaal apart selecteren en verwijderen. (Merk op dat er nu een gele kader getrokken wordt tussen de 2 kanalen)


Het onderste spoor  kopiëren we naar het bovenste zodat een “stereo” effect ontstaat. Uiteraard kunnen we nog een aantal dingen aanpassen zoals het volume, ruis weghalen enz, maar dat is nu niet van toepassing.


Nadat dit in orde is gebracht, bewaren we het bestand als een .mp3; kwestie om de bestandsgrootte wat in te perken, via “Bestand -> Exporteren..” 

Deze file gaan we nadien in Virtualdub terug importeren in het bestaande videobestand. (Zie Deel 2 )

 

A new surprise rose when working on a mac today.

When copying a folder to a location where a folder with the same name already exists, the only option is to replace the folder (and loosing all files from the replaced folder) or stop the copy/move operation.

1) We create the following folder structure:

2) We copy/move “Data” from the rootfolder to “Main” and receive a notification about an excisting item.

3) If your windows-minded, like me, you’ll assume that existing files/folders will be renamed/merged. Guess again.

4) Our “Main -> Data” folder is fully replaced with the Data folder from our root, which means that everything is removed.

I guess a simple merge option is not user-friendly….

A (beta) version of Messenger live is available.

Download Windows Live Messenger 2011:

http://explore.live.com/windows-live-messenger

On a side note:

The new Windows Live Messenger, differently from previous WLM versions, doesn’t give you the opportunity to modify and alter your nickname or display name . What’s worst is that Windows Live Messenger 2011 will only display your real name and surname which you previously set in your profile when you signed-up. Let’s see together how you can easily modify and add your nickname thanks to this little trick!
The only way to add a nickname to Windows Live Messenger 2011 is to modify your real name and last name. No other ways are possible at this time.

  • Open and login Windows Live Messenger 2011.
  • Click your user name using the small arrow on top of the messenger’s window.
  • Click Edit your Name in the menu.
  • A Windows Live Profile web page will be automatically opened in your browser. Modify or change the First Name and Last Name.
  • Click the Save button.
  • Done!
 

This little script helps to locate a (cisco) switch which has multiple connections on one port.
The result is a txtfile with the name, ip and port of the switch.

Software used:

  1. cut.exe
  2. sort.exe
  3. uniqe.exe
  4. tst10.exe aka Telnet Scripting Tool

The first 3 files can found in the CoreUtils archive.

The Telnet Scripting Tool can be found on Jerry Mannel’s blog

Preparations:

  1. Create a folder and place the files
  2. Create a file, eg switches.txt
  3. Save the source code, which can be found at the bottom of this article, as something.vbs

– Switches.txt should be in the following format:

ip-address;serietype;fullname (in most cases serietype=2950)

10.10.10.1;2950;switch-01
10.10.10.2;2950;switch-02

To run: open a commandprompt and type “wscript something.vbs”

The Code:

We begin by setting up our environment.

set wshshell = createobject("wscript.shell")
set fso= createobject("scripting.filesystemobject")
set switchlist = fso.opentextfile("switches.txt")
 
if fso.fileExists("result.txt") then
	fso.deleteFile "result.txt", true
end if
 
set result = fso.openTextFile("result.txt",8,true)

We loop switches.txt until all items are processed and make sure that previous created files are removed.

do until switchlist.atendofstream
 
	'--- Remove all previous files ---
 
	if fso.fileExists("output.txt") then
		fso.deleteFile "output.txt", true
	end if
	if fso.fileExists("temp.txt") then
		fso.deleteFile "temp.txt", true
	end if
	if fso.fileExists("double.txt") then
		fso.deleteFile "double.txt", true
	end if
 
	switch = switchList.readLine
	matrix = split(switch, ";")
	ip = matrix(0)
	typeswitch = matrix(1)
	switchname = matrix(2)
 
	if fso.filEexists("script.txt") then
		fso.deleteFile "script.txt", true
	end if

Since not every IOS uses the same commands, we split our code up.

if typeswitch = "2950" then
 
	set script = fso.openTextFile("script.txt",8,true)
		script.writeline ip & " 23"
		script.writeline "send " & """<passwd>\m"""
		script.writeline "wait " & """>"""
		script.writeline "send " & """term len 0\m"""
		script.writeline "wait " & """>"""
		script.writeline "send " & """show mac-address-table | include Fa0/\m"""
		script.writeline "wait " & """>"""
		script.writeline "send " & """quit\m"""
	script.close
 
	else 'type=2948
 
	set script = fso.openTextFile("script.txt",8,true)
		script.writeline ip & " 23"
		script.writeline "send " & """<passwd>\m"""
		script.writeline "wait " & """>"""
		script.writeline "send " & """set len 0\m"""
		script.writeline "wait " & """>"""
		script.writeline "send " & """show cam dyn | exclude 2/49\m"""
		script.writeline "wait " & """>"""
		script.writeline "send " & """quit\m"""
	script.close
 
	end if

The code above is necessary for using the Telnet Scripting Tool. More information about its use can be found on this blog.

commandoTelnet = "TST10 /r:script.txt /o:output.txt"
	wshshell.run commandoTelnet, ,True	
 
	wscript.sleep 3000
 
	if typeswitch = "2950" then
 
	commandoGrep = "cmd /c " & """grep -e " & """DYNAMIC""" & " -e " & """STATIC""" & " output.txt > temp.txt"""
	wshshell.run commandoGrep, , True
 
	commandoCut = "cmd /c " & """cut -c 39- temp.txt > test.txt"""
	wshshell.run commandoCut, , True
 
	else '=2948
 
	commandoGrep = "cmd /c " & """grep -e " & """[ALL]""" & " output.txt > temp.txt"""
	wshshell.run commandoGrep, , True
 
	commandoCut = "cmd /c " & """cut -c 39- temp.txt > test.txt"""
	wshshell.run commandoCut, , True
 
	end if
 
	commandoFindDuplicates = "cmd /c" & """sort test.txt |uniq -d > double.txt"""
	doubles = wshshell.run(commandoFindDuplicates, ,True)
 
	if fso.fileExists("double.txt") then
		set readDoubleTxt = fso.openTextFile("double.txt")
		do until readDoubleTxt.atendofstream
			routerOpPort = readDoubleTxt.readline
			result.writeline switchname & "(" & ip & ")" & "->" & routerOpPort
		loop
	readDoubleTxt.close
	end if
 
loop
result.close
Wscript.Echo "Script finished !"

The resulting output is:

switch-02(10.10.10.1)->Fa0/45
switch-02(10.10.10.2)->Fa0/46
switch-03(10.10.10.3)->Fa0/2
switch-06(10.10.10.4)->Fa0/33
switch-07(10.10.10.5)->Fa0/41
switch-08(10.10.10.6)->Fa0/24

Although this script can be further optimized, it does the job for me 🙂

The fullcode :


 

When receiving popups as mentioned above, your not really infected, that is if you don’t put a fake antivirus program in account.

Quote from Wikipedia:

Security Tool is a rogue antivirus program that displays false scan reports intended to convince the user that his or her computer is infected with various forms of malware. This misleading software will tell the user that he or she needs to purchase the full version of the software to remove these threats. These so-called infections do not actually exist, however, as they are only attempts to frighten the user to purchase the full version of the software. This rogue is designed to scam the operator into giving the fake purchase panel their credit card number and information.

In other words: Security Tool displays fake security alerts. Once running, Security Tool will scan the computer and randomly select various files and labels them as malware. Also it blocks the ability to run legit programs.

1. How to remove ?

By using a combination of the following software:
Malwarebytes Anti Malware – Superantispyware

  1. Boot to Safe Mode with network (press F8 while rebooting.)
  2. Install Malwarebytes Anti Malware and do an update.
  3. Install  Superantispyware, you can use the portable edition which does NOT install anything on your Start Menu or Program Files and does NOT need to be uninstalled.
  4. After Malwarebytes has been updated, let it do a full scan.
  5. When the scan is complete, click OK, then “Show Results” to view the results. Check everything and click “Remove Selected”. Reboot if prompted.

To make sure your computer is completely clean, do another scan with Superantispyware, using the latest version and definitions.

2. How to avoid ?

It’s one good thing on how to remove rogue programs, but it would be far better if these can be avoided in the future.

  1. Make sure you have an updated virusscanner.
  2. Verify your sources when downloading updates, software, etc
  3. Use common sense; e.g. don’t click on everything that seems legit
 

File In Use or Folder In Use

The operation can’t be completed because the file/folder is open in another program.
Close the file/folder and try again

One of the most annoying experience when using Windows is the message above. When a file is in use or accessed by a running program, or a folder that contains a file that’s been accessed, opened, written or used by other user or program, Windows will fail to delete or remove the file or folder with this error message.

One way to resolve this is by:
– Open a CMD window
– Close the explorer.exe process
– Navigate to the file/folder location and delete it

However, this doesn’t always work, because another program could be responsible for the “file-lock”.

Another and perhaps easier way is by the use of LockHunter.
It is a free tool to delete or/and unlock files blocked by something you do not know, by simply right-clicking on the desired item.

We can choose to unlock it, or delete it. Other options are “Close locking processes” and “Delete locking processes from disk

Key Features

  1. Shows processes locking a file or folder
  2. Allows to unlock, delete, copy or rename a locked file
  3. Allows to kill locking process
  4. Allows to remove locking processes from hard drive
  5. Integrates in to Explorer menu
  6. It deletes files into the recycle bin, so you may restore them if deleted by mistake
  7. Supports both 32 and 64bit Windows
 

When adobe CS4 master collection is installed and you use Exact Audio Copy on windows 7 (or Vista), the application EAC can suddenly close via the standard open file dialog:

For some unknown reason EAC has started crashing in Vista x64 when opening any file via standard Windows open file dialog — the dialog opens, shows the folder tree panel and then… EAC is gone without a trace, no error messages, no processes left in device manager, nothing. This happens if you try to set default folder in Directories tab, split a wav file by cue, provide a path to external compressor in Compression options, etc.

I can confirm that Adobe Drive CS4 is the problem. I had the same problem you stated plus I am also using Vista Business 64-bit as well as Adobe Master Collection CS4.

2 solutions:
– Remove Adobo Drive CS4
Easier said than done. Adobe Drive CS4 x64 is installed as a dependency of Photoshop CS4 x64. It cannot be uninstalled without removing Photoshop; at least, not using the Adobe installer anyway.

Not to be deterred, I uninstalled Adobe Drive manually. First I unregistered the DLLs by running (as administrator)

regsvr32 /u “%CommonProgramFiles%\Adobe\Adobe Drive CS4\ADFSMenu.dll
regsvr32 /u “%CommonProgramFiles%\Adobe\Adobe Drive CS4\AdobeDriveCS4_NP.dll

Then I ripped all references to “Adobe Drive” out of the registry using regedit, and finally I deleted the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Adobe Drive CS4 folder.

And now EAC works again, and Photoshop seems to get by just fine without Adobe Drive!

– Change Compatibility setting
check “disable visual themes” under EAC, Properties, Compatibility tab

 

Recently I decided to use outlook 2007 instead of Windows Mail. I assumed that this was like a walk in the park,  it became an obstacle course.

Follow these steps: (In my situation I went from pc A (vista) to pc B (win7))

1. Export the messages

Choose a location where the messages will be stored and select the desired folders.

After a while, depending on the total of mails, this process is done.

2. install outlook 2007

Speaks for itself.

3. Install Windows Live Mail

Windows 7 does not come with any mailprogram, so I had to download this via the  Windows Live Installer.

4. Import Windows Mail

After the installation we open Windows Live Mail and choose File => Import messages and browse to our previously exported Windows Mail folder.

mail-import

We see that our mails are imported, although the folders could be messed up. Not a problem, afterwards we put them in the desired location.

mail-import-1

5. Export Windows Live Mail
Now we export the mails (again), but we choose for Exchange.

mail-import-2

6. Open Outlook 2007

When you open outlook 2007 you’ll notice an extra folder: Storage Folders. In here we find our imported mails.

mail-import-3

Notice how the folders are a little bit “scrambled” and do not have the same architecture (Inbox in imported folder in imported folder, etc). Just move the folders to your desired location.

As you can see; just 6 ‘simple’  steps to store your mails in their new environment.

 

You can protect a word document against editing, so that it can only be read and printed. Occasionally you’re allowed to edit certain sections.

There’s an easy way to circumvent this protection or if you forgot the password 😉

Step by step:

  1. Open the file and select in the menu File: Save as…
  2. Save the document as RTF-format and close it
  3. Open the RTF file. Choose the “Review” tab and the “Protect Document”
  4. word_protect

  5. Click “Stop Protection”
  6. Close the “Protect Document” section

Now you are able to edit the document.
