(almost) up to date daala builds for windows
64-bit for now, if anyone need 32-bit just contact me

Daala Websites
Website - GitHub - Demos

Compiler Details:

  • Cygwin64 1.7.32(0.274/5/3)
  • libogg 1.3.1-1

Usage

Source: ffmpeg -i any-video.webm -pix_fmt yuv420p input.y4m
Encoding: encoder_example -v 20 input.y4m -o daala-video.ogv
Decoding: dump_video daala-video.ogv -o output.y4m
Playback: Play outout.y4m in MPC-BE

Use between 0-55 (0 being lossless), daala supports upto 511 but thats pointless in my testing

Issues

Only use same build for the encoded file.
daala is not finished. so file decoding will break between builds

Download

Nice TV, but it has alot of small annoyances

Subtitles

  • Subtitles and Smart LED is a mess!? its not that smart, it will boost backlight on lower parts of the picture when the subtitles shows up
  • not possible to change primary subtitle language, its greyed out on mkv content (!)
  • not possible to turn off english subtitles on english language
  • or turn on english subtitles on japanese/non-english content only

DLNA

  • When browsing DLNA media server and sort by date, it will go back to root path and sort everything(this take ages with alot of media), would have been more useful and alot faster to do it on a per folder basis, so i can set sorting after date on "my pictures folder" but in the underfolders it can keep sorting a-z

Matroska

  • no FLAC in mkv support (it does play Music FLACs via DLNA)
  • no OPUS in mkv support (vorbis works however)
  • if the audio is unsupported, would have been useful if it tries another audio track? some of my files have both flac and dts/ac3
  • no H.264 High Profile 10-bit in mkv support (what? it is a 10-bit (12-bit?!) UltraHDTV for crying out lound)

will update as i notice more, some things might work but i havnt find out how, will try more testing of files

Did not find a simple way to setup network on arch, so here is a realy quick and easy guide to setup network on arch

wlan0 dhcp

nano /etc/netctl/wlan0
and put this inside

Description='wpa wireless'  
Interface=wlan0  
Connection=wireless  
Security=wpa  
IP=dhcp  
ESSID='MyNetwork'  
Key='WirelessKey'

now you can
netctl enable wlan0 && netctl start wlan0

dhcp eth0

nano /etc/netctl/eth0 and put this inside

Description='eth0'  
Interface=eth0  
Connection=ethernet  
IP=dhcp  

now you can
netctl enable && netctl start eth0

create smb-users group

sudo addgroup smb-users sudo chgrp -R smb-users /disk2/data

create user
useradd -c “name” username

add a current user to smb-users
sudo usermod -a -G smb-users someuser

set a samba password
smbpasswd -a username

Samba config file
*add this to /etc/samba/smb.conf *

[global] 
workgroup = HOME  
netbios name = SAMBA  
server string = Samba Server %v  
map to guest = Bad User  
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m  
max log size = 50  
socket options = IPTOSLOWDELAY TCPNODELAY  
preferred master = No  
local master = No  
dns proxy = No  
security = User 

[mydata] 
path = /path/to/mydata  
valid users = @smb-users  
read only = No  
create mask = 0777  
directory mask = 0777  

its pretty easy all you have to have is uck and a ubuntu cd iso from here
