Title: Help with MLV File: Won't open because corrupted by 7D shutting down
Post by: PaulHarwood856 on October 12, 2016, 07:00:37 AM
Hello ML Community,

     I was shooting raw video on my 7D a few months back, and during recording a long file my battery died.

     I cannot open the file, and don't have much experience with MLV_Dump. I have read a forum post about this issue and MLV_Dump possibly figuring out what the problem is with the file:

     http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=16126.0 (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=16126.0)

     Here is a link to the file via Google Drive if anyone wants to take a look: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0Bz5n0qYxIkVOZHo4STFMTzVGdUE?usp=sharing (https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0Bz5n0qYxIkVOZHo4STFMTzVGdUE?usp=sharing)

     I appreciate any help that can be provided. Thank you.

Title: New server - Forum info center (bottom)
Post by: Kharak on October 12, 2016, 10:12:45 AM
First of all congratulations on the move to a new server. As i understood the old one was not coping very well anymore.

The news feed says to report stuff that used to work. Well i usually check the bottom 'info center' of the forum main page for new posts and threads, i am sure i am not the only one and as you might have noticed, it now posts each new post in a thread as an individual post in the info center, so it looks like spam because there are 10 of the same 'RE: ...' To a tread In the info center. This only leaves room for about 4-5 different threads in the info center.

Would be nice to have it the way it was before where only 1 of each tread depending on post date would be shown in the info center. Top ones being most recent and bottom oldest.

Thanks

Tapatalk users -- check to see if you have anything in your "PARTICIPATED" tab. Looks like mine and @DeafEyeJedi don't have any items there.
Title: Re: New server
Post by: DeafEyeJedi on October 15, 2016, 01:35:10 AM
Seriously this is a big bug with the new server. At first I thought it was a Tapatalk issue but then I checked with other forums which then shows the enlisted participate section.

Even after replying to this thread -- still doesn't show up under participate section. I find this very useful for me to track down all my participation with you guys on certain threads.

Here's what the empty participate section looks like from ML:

Here's what the participate section looks like from within another Forum:

okay this was quite an odyssey
had to reinstall tapatalk addon (no clue why, i copied databases and sources from original server...)
so i have manually undone the patches tapatalk installation made to the sources (i.e. edit all source files and search for tapatalk's modifications)

and then reinstall the plugin:
but this required to allow FTP access for chmod and file operations.
but the vsftp didnt allow SITE CHMOD for the current chrooted user (although it was enabled and rights were correct plus it worked from cmdline)
and with the in.ftpd chroot needed all binaries in chrooted environment too.
non-chrooted didnt work due to SMF not wanting to accept the "root path" to prefix to file operations.

but finally it works ;)

aaaaaaah!

I hope this might help.

I have finally managed to access the forum But, I can do that only if browsing while using a VPN.

my PC runs windows 7 pro + Service Pack 1

On chrome version 53, while running Betternet 4.0.7
Same for Firefox 49 + Browsec 2.0.3
I can access the forum. Without the VPN i get:

Code: [Select]
Data too long for column 'ip' at row 1


On Opera Stable 40 I get the same line of code if I try to access the forum

if it is so and ipv6 is not supported by forum, you should disable ipv6 on server and/or remove aaaa from dns.

Not sure why/how some of us are still effected by this so called 'Data too long for column 'ip' at row 1' bug which has to do with these running IPV6 via through internet/wifi at home (my current workaround to bypass is to use my iPhone's hotspot and connect to it's wifi) otherwise I cannot use the ML forums.

After a few researches online and came across to this (http://stackoverflow.com/a/21523073)...

Quote
You are trying to insert data that is larger than allowed for the column logo.

Use following data types as per your need

TINYBLOB   :     maximum length of 255 bytes 
BLOB       :     maximum length of 65,535 bytes 
MEDIUMBLOB :     maximum length of 16,777,215 bytes 
LONGBLOB   :     maximum length of 4,294,967,295 bytes 

Use LONGBLOB to avoid this exception.


and I'm not even sure if this would give you a hint or two @g3gg0.

A workaround on mac is to change to link-local only.
You find it under system preferences - network - Advanced - TCP/IP

I can confirm this did the trick -- Thanks a bunch @Danne!

And as pointed out from others youtube and vimeo embed buttons are gone.

Just noticed this as well but if I place the URL link from Vimeo on here it'll just automagically embed it online for viewing purposes. Not sure about YouTube.

Here are the examples below:

Post by: dfort on October 25, 2016, 09:32:03 PM
Not sure about YouTube.

The YouTube tag still works for embedding video though there's no button on the editor. Note that you need to change https to http for the youtube tag to work.

This works:
Code: [Select]
[youtube]http://youtu.be/ZzcMQuLAXKs[/youtube]

But this doesn't:
Code: [Select]
http://youtu.be/ZzcMQuLAXKs

Like you said, vimeo works fine just like this:
Code: [Select]

On the top right of this forum page there are three links: Home Page, Downloads, and Userguide.
When I click user guide, it redirects to the Nightly Builds page. The URL says https://wiki.magiclantern.fm/, though.
If i'm not wrong this is a bug, because I used to be able to read a wiki page there.
Thanks

Not sure why so many new videos posted in "Share Your Videos" don't show up in the users post not even after logging in just to watch a video, yet others are replying to videos after viewing so not having the issue. Win 10 64bit Firefox, MS Edge and Chrome. Just logging in and refreshing doesn't solve it. I have to close the tab having first logged in then start a new tab and revisit the thread then the video appears.

I'm not sure if it's a problem or intentional, but I can't find any way to be notified of new posts in threads I've participated in. (I only use the forum through a web browser, not the Tapatalk app)

I can see the notifications tab in the modify profile page, and I've turned notifications on, but the section for "Current Topic Notifications" is blank. The SMF help pages suggest that I can click a Notify button on any thread I want, but it doesn't appear to be visible anywhere on the Magic Lantern forums.

Second 'problem' - are profile pictures limited to Hero users? I've tried adding a link through modify profile before but it never actually saves.

Not sure if this is the right spot to report but for awhile whenever we paste Vimeo URL links (without the s in https://) and not need of inserting proper embed links to make it appear doesn't seem to work anymore which then would require us to use proper embed links such as 'Not a valid vimeo URL'?

However, there's also another annoying issue when it comes to using Tapatalk apps via iOS devices -- has anyone notice when using proper URL embeds it doesn't show the vimeo player upon using the app unless we either go into 'Webview mode' via Safari or just simply paste the normal vimeo URL without the embed link (really frustrating for our reading experience) so not sure if this has anything to do with the new server that you guys currently use to host this forum site?

Because in the past it was all working fine like normal in 3-ways like literally. This very issue also applies to normal OS X viewing (Safari, Firefox, Chrome) if I were to use a normal vimeo URL which would then usually show up as a video player (like as if I had used an embed URL when not needed) as this also no longer works hence the above reports -- could these issues be related altogether at the very least?

Because in the past it was so easy just to copy the normal vimeo URL (only required to eliminate the 'S' in https://) which was not only much easier to copy/paste and it also worked like wonders when it comes to viewing online whether it's on Mac OS X via Safari or iDevices iOS via Tapatalk, etc so something must have changed in between, hmm?

I have iphone and since yesterday the forum is all screwed up. Looks like it is trying to display in desktop mode, but the format doesn’t fit.

Did I click something by accident or has something been changed?

Indeed, I've upgraded the SMF theme to this one (https://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=4040), which is supposed to be a little more mobile-friendly. I don't use a smartphone, so I have little or no idea how this forum feels like, on small devices. Of course, I can simulate the look by resizing the browser, or borrow a smartphone to try, but... I don't know how it should be. Should I revert this change and go back to default theme?

Also, if you can suggest a SMF theme that works well on smartphones, I'm all ears.

Having trouble to use search within a forum post. Usually while being inside a forum thread you are able to use search from within the topic you´re in. Can´t get it working now. It goes out searching through all threads.

Where is the search bar anyway? On vacay?
Title: Re: New server - Please report any problems with the site here
Post by: a1ex on May 22, 2019, 04:40:23 PM
Seems to work fine here. For example, if I go into the big crop_rec_4k thread and if I type "download" (a pretty generic word) in the search box on the top right, I only get results from that topic. Or, right here in this topic, if I type "search", I only get 3 results (all from this topic). If I do the same from the main page, I get many pages with results from different topics.

I did enable whole-word matching, as I've searched for LED a few days ago and also got matches for "installed" and many other unrelated words. But that shouldn't interfere with the search-within-topic feature...

The search box is visible in Ilia's screenshot, btw.

Click on the little chevron on the top right; it should reveal the missing buttons.

This was present before the upgrade, too, according to archive.org (I've never noticed it before).

I prefer the forum like it was, everything is so crammed, like this reply box i am writing in now. This is the 4th line down already..(5th)

Videos on the forum dont fit, i have to zoom out very far or scroll far right to find the middle play button on Youtube vids.

I suppose i like that it was so similar to the desktop version on the phone.

@Kharak: no problem to go back: on firefox mobile, click the menu dots, then click "Desktop Page" (or similar). Then it looks like before. In chrome app there should be something similar too...

Indeed, videos are not resized properly. This is not new; the older theme had the same problem (but I guess the mobile browsers displayed a zoomed-out version, masking the issue).

Anyone good at CSS, to fix it? I don't feel like reverse engineering SMF themes...

For RWD 16:9 videos I always used this CSS, don't remember original source now:
Code: [Select]
.embed-container {
    position:       relative;
    padding-bottom: 56.25%;   /* 16/9 ratio */
/*  padding-top:    30px; /* IE6 workaround*/
    height:         0;
    overflow:       hidden;
    margin-bottom:  10px;
    border-radius:  2px;
    z-index:        1;
    }

.embed-container iframe,
.embed-container object,
.embed-container embed,
.embed-container div.embed {
    position:       absolute;
    top:            0;
    left:           0;
    width:          100%;
    height:         100%;
    }
Of course whatever is inserted inside has to have no width/height set. This worked at least for YT, FB and I think Vimeo videos.
And you may add max-width to .embed-container since it will fill parent (which was expected in my case)

Editing: solved, it was a permission issue.

Imgbb integration: no, not going to happen. Even if g3gg0 trusted them a while ago, I don't (https://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3869897) share (https://www.cnet.com/forums/discussions/imgbb-contact-and-removal/) the (http://www.cockersonline.co.uk/discuss/index.php?topic=118959.0) same (https://voat.co/v/pizzagate/2051044) opinion (https://www.pond-life.me.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=16283).

I am, however, considering other options - suggestions welcome. The easiest way would be to enable uploads on our server, but I want to understand the security implications first. I'd also like to re-host existing images (or attempt to restore them from archive.org where possible).

FYI, these upgrades are not done for the lulz. They should have been done years ago.

I agree. They require shady javascript. Using iframes linking to JS bloated websites is bad.
I've been using Pictshare (https://www.pictshare.net/) for some time and it works. They seem to require JS for upload, but they give a hard link after it and it loads only the file, nothing more (unlike imgur and imgbb).
Of course, if you want something trustworthy you need to self-host.

Another idea for more privacy would be to redirect youtube links to Invidious (https://github.com/omarroth/invidious).
Title: Re: New server - Please report any problems with the site here
Post by: a1ex on September 17, 2019, 08:27:22 AM
Thanks for the suggestions; Pictshare looks a lot more reasonable.

Maybe some automatic self-hosting bot, uploading things to our server after a moderator approves the post, could work without exposing us too much. There are plenty of spam images that I don't want to be hosted on this server. You don't usually see them, as new users have to be approved by moderators before their posts appear. The unfortunate side effect is that posts of new users appear with some delay, ranging from a few hours to a few weeks (as the moderators are also working in their spare time - like everyone else).

I also like the idea of no-JS video playback from Invidious. Now, to figure out how to integrate it with SMF...

Thanks @Luther for pointing this thread to my attention. Good to know!

I'll definitely refrain from using ibb.co going forward then.

Btw pictshare (https://www.pictshare.net) seems very nice. Will try that.  :)

I see a YouTube button, a Vimeo button and an i button.

Definetly better, privacy wise. But not perfect, as we don't own the server and can't know whats going on on their end.

Same as before @garry23, using "img":
Code: [Select]
[img]https://pictshare.net/xxx.jpg[/img]More correct version:
Code: [Select]
[url=https://pictshare.net/xxx.jpg][img width=800]https://pictshare.net/xxx.jpg[/img][/url]

In the past (about 1 year ago or a bit more) I could see a the tweets or a part of tweet in a box under "@autoexec.bin on Twitter" text and I could scroll between them and click on it to view the tweet I chose on Twitter in a new page , it was a fast and cool preview of new tweets , Who made that box disappear ?  :'(

wtf! I go to the effort of only embedding the image in my posts without wacky ibb links or javascript, but even my images are hidden, I think they went a bit too far with blocking it. Might as well block all images hosted on amazon or google servers.

The forum used to have an "add image" thing that went to imgbb, can that be added back but with some other upload site?

As for Twitter on home page, I accidentally posted this in EOS M thread  :-[

The code is there, but it's commented - so it was intentional.
Maybe it stopped working? I checked and current widget embed code is slightly different than one on site: https://publish.twitter.com/

Yes, it stopped working on May 25, 2018. Once I'll sort out that issue, I'll add it back :)

Almost figured out how to re-host the images. Still some edge cases not handled correctly, but... it's a start.
