Well seeing as we get a stat for Friday, it's long weekend time for me. There may already be a weekend Yuk, but I am too impatient to look for it.

Not one video player?

by Oz_Media In reply to booo - hiiss

All of mine do, it's just a friggin codec!

I can play 6 hrs of WMV (full colour video) on my MP3 player!

But not one player supports WMV?

EDIT: http://flavor8.com/index.php/2005/10/22/wmv-codecs-for-mplayer-linux/

Do you have MPlayer for your penguin?
You know, modern computers come in colours other than black and white. Tuxuedos are only cool for the the odd appearance, most of the time they just stop you from playing and having fun wih the others.

Mplayer..

by Jaqui In reply to Not one video player?

says it supports older wmv format.
the newest format requires the MS dll for it to play it.
and the only way to actually use the codec in mplayer now is actually against the laws, that is why the codec isn't available through the ditribution sources.
[ heck apotheon and I were talking about it last night, before you posted the link, the codec was removed from ALL debian repositories because of legal restrictions.

So while there is limited support, for pre wmv9 [ media player 9 version ] it's actually an illegal codec as the codec was never released or licensed for linux by MS.

If that concerns you, then don't bother. It's only a vid clip.

That link doesnt work

But since it is friday (almost) ... Here's a laugh

One day three men were hiking and unexpectedly came upon a large raging, violent river. They needed to get to the other side, but had no idea of how to do so.

The first man prayed to God, saying "please God, give me the strength to cross this river".

Poof....

God gave him big arms and strong legs. Despite almost drowning a couple of times he was able to swim across the river in about two hours.

Seeing this, the second man prayed to God, saying "please God, give me the strength ... and the tools to cross this river".

Poof....

God gave him a rowboat. Despite almost capsizing the boat a couple of times, he was able to row across the river in about an hour.

The third man seeing how it had worked out for the other two, also prayed to God, saying "please God, give me the strength and the tools ..... and the intelligence to cross this river".

Poof.....

God turned him into a woman. She looked at the map, hiked upstream a couple of hundred yards, then walked across the bridge

Edited to add: Happy Holidays everyone. Its going to be a looong LAN party weekend for me.

by Oz_Media In reply to Sorry Oz

Still works for me, so do the other hundred or so vids they have?!?!?

For a bunch of 'IT Pros' you sure aren't that well versed in codecs! Not just you stargazer but others too I see.

Almost feel sorry for her

by Oz_Media In reply to Funny

To actually leave the ice once and come back for another go at it, then fall in front of the entire Hockey team and all the fans, you would want to curl up in the fetal position and disappear.

Well....

I can understand stage fright and all, but you should not sing 'THE US NATIONAL ANTHEM' if you can't remember the words!!

Heck, I learned most of the song in 15 minutes when I worked at a camp, and sang it at a camp banquet. I forgot the words too (but I covered it up by making everyone sing up)!!
