Mir gefällts, allerdings…
$ ffmpeg -vaapi_device /dev/dri/renderD129 -i source.mp4 -vf 'format=nv12,hwupload'
This results in ~8x realtime encode speed at 1080p.
You can skip the `format=nv12` but then the speed drops to ~2x realtime.
intel-gpu-top reports only ~35% "Video" engine utilization, so perhaps the encoding itself is not a bottleneck?
I will need to play around with the bitrates and compare with SVT-AV1
Many years overdue for a GPU upgrade, I caved in to "Black Friday" deals and got myself an #Intel #Arc 750 GPU. My main use-case is not just (occasional) gaming, but mainly compute (goofing around with LLM / SD) and #av1 video encoding.
I could also not yet find the right spell for #ffmpeg hwaccel AV1 encoding.
One of the more challenging parts of my current book release is being ghosted by most #ARC readers, at least compared to my other books. So I’d like to turn to the #fediverse and ask if there is anyone out there who would like to receive an ARC copy of my young adult book in exchange for a #bookreview before it comes out next week? #review #bookblog #authorsofmastodon #author #reviewer #writingcommunity #books #bookstodon @bookstodon
Features I like:
- Spaces and Profiles
- Air Traffic Control
- Support for Chrome extensions
- Boost ‼️
- Split View
Features I'd like to see added:
- An option to have tabs be at the top of the window (I know, I know…)
- A mute button in the PiP player
The sidebar has its advantages (like favourites), but I just haven't gotten used to it yet 🤷🏼♂️
RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARC
I realized my typo later and decided it wasn't a typo so much as an entendre for what I intended and also "losing the plot" so it stands as written.
ALSO: I'm quite happy with my Sonos ARC sound bar and its companion SUB (subwoofer). The sound bar has some media server features that I've always been curious about. Will probably experiment as hubby and I gradually reclaim control over all our media.
263: La saga de OpenAI
Core Ultra 7 155H: Im OpenCL-Benchmark liegt Intel auf Augenhöhe mit AMD Phoenix https://www.computerbase.de/2023-11/core-ultra-7-155h-im-opencl-benchmark-liegt-intel-auf-augenhoehe-mit-amd-phoenix/ #Intel #Arc #MeteorLake
Simultaneously, #Iranian militias operate unchecked.
Against pentagon & Military leaders criminal defendant trump took US out which was a victory for #Iran & Russia, and a betrayal among #Kurdish and Arab opposition forces. Experts: the move provided “Iran with solid control over the entire #arc of the #Levant from #Baghdad to #Beirut” and allowed Russia and Iran to emerge as the dominant players in #Syria.
The decision to withdraw was abrupt & led to a combat zone growing more unstable by the hour. Despite warnings from senior US officials & commanders that the fight against ISIS was not over and that without more help and training from #American troops, #ISIS extremists did regroup and return.
The recent #arc #DiscoveryProjects announcements had 421 funded projects. About 10 of them didn't have a full professor or associate professor (i.e. Level E or D) in the team of applicants. That's less than 1 in 40.
I guess networking is everything, if one is working on something that is very new in this country and doesn't have senior people already working on it yet.
🆕 The Alliance of Responsible Citizenship conference: the most depressing show on Earth | Ann Moody
When will the right give us a break from cringing public displays of their existential crisis?
#ARC #statistics my proposal on statistical inference for data visualisation wasn’t funded. What happened? Three detailed reviewers ranked it 1st among their reviews, with letter grades two As and one B, two top 10%, one 10-25%. The ARC college of “experts” shifted the score to a letter grade of E, bottom 75-100%, no explanation, no reason. I want to thank the detailed reviewers for believing in the research, and this message is to make public what happened to it in the final stage.
Really, really digging #Arc from the Browser Company on MacOS. Hadn't really been into it during the betas, but am now coming to love it. Lots of features that definitely provide value for me. System-wide Little Arc, split views, some of the new AI features, spaces, the command pallette.
Canadian climate science denier Jordan Peterson’s new right-wing project, the Alliance for Responsible Citizenship, launched this week with claims that carbon emissions have “declined” and that the climate crisis is a “secular religion”.
Honored to be discussing #FindingTheRightWords: A Story of #Literature, #Grief, and the #Brain with members of #UCLA's #ARC (Americanist Research Colloquium) on November 9th from 4 to 5 pm. Thank you #ChrisLooby and the UCLA #EnglishDepartment for the invitation.

@idew @protonmail My #spam also went way down when I switched to #ProtonMail, and that was before I started using #SimpleLogin aliases. It's amazing what a good #SPF, #DKIM, #DMARC, and #ARC implementation can do.
Here it is! FigFix, a set of tweaks that make Figma’s layer panel easier to use with deeply nested layers.

@dpom I'm a weird one in that while i only use 1 browser for work, i use multiple on my phone (based on purpose), and have been trying #opera GX on my gaming laptop (so i can keep the browser open with minimal impact on performance). Once #Arc browser comes to #windows that will be hitting that computer too.
Honestly #chrome has become vanilla ice cream. But i still like the dev tools in it the most.
Had some time to finish up the best compromise (css only) so far. Digging the added outlines, not so much the selected rows’ background not extending to the edge.
But it's not nearly as nice as I had hoped.
It boils down to someone offering you an email that, according to DKIM and DMARC has been tampered with and should be rejected, assuring you he had to change a few things that broke security, but that it was all in good faith.
And you having to trust him...
You've made it this far, nice. I have to warn you that there's a lot more, some of it technical talk about email, some of it about trust.
Would you trust an ARC seal, on a message that doesn't check out, because the one offering it says it's OK?
If I recognise that seal as one of my own servers, or a colleague I trust: I would. If I recognise it as my ISP or one of my favourite mailing lists, I probably would, depending on the context. But a random -possible- spammer, phisher or "state actor"?
How do I know who's who? My mailservers get hammered by hundreds of different machines every day, how do I know if I can trust them if they offer me a message with smoke coming out?
That's basically the problem with ARC: who do I trust?
Now, some technical stuff to see what we're dealing with. Say, we have two small companies, one does plumbing, the other runs an office and needs some plumbing done. They both have their private email addresses; the plumber has his own domain at his ISP, the office uses GMail to forward mail to theirs.
Now the plumber mails an offer to the office, through his ISP, who adds a DKIM signature and has configured a strict DMARC policy for the domain.
GMail accepts the message, but to successfully forward it to the office's mailserver, they can't use the original envelope-from, because SPF says they're not on the list for that domain. So they use #SRS to circumvent that: they "wrap" the original "mail from:" address, firstname.lastname@example.org, in one of their own, like:
That satisfies SPF (somewhat), because their servers are allowed to send from addresses within the @google.com domain.
But it breaks alignment for both SPF and DKIM, because now the envelope-from doesn't match the from-header anymore. Those are two indicators that something fishy could be going on.
The DKIM signature itself is still valid though, so DMARC is fine and the office's ISP accepts the mail.
But what if Google were to change stuff in the actual message? That would break the signature. Like what mailinglist servers do: they change the body, for example by adding an unsubscribe-URL to it. That's legit, but it does break the DKIM signature, causing DMARC to reject the message.
Let's say, they want to add a link to one of their advertisers ("you need a plumber? pick me, pick me!") as an "added service to both parties".
The plumber's DMARC policy would tell the office's ISP to reject that message: exactly what should happen to forged/manipulated messages, that's what DKIM and DMARC are for.
But then there's ARC...
Google adds an ARC seal to the message that basically says "although DMARC says this message stinks to high heaven, we guarantee that it's ok; we had to change a few things, all with good intents. Trust us, we're Google"
BAM! "Approved by Google".
Would you trust that seal?
I think most parties would. If you're in the email business, you can't just go about and refuse email from Google, that would basically excommunicate you. You'd be out of business in a few weeks, but more on that later.
But would you trust others?
Would you trust some unknown server in a country with a dubious reputation when it comes to cybercrime and spam, if it tried to deliver a message that DMARC warns you has been tampered with?
Would you trust your government's seal..?
Would you trust those ARC seals enough to override DMARC's verdict, just because that server says it's ok? If so, why? Because they were tech savvy enough to add it?
Before you accept an ARC seal, you should know who's behind it, and that you trust them enough to ignore the alarm bells. DMARC is there for a reason: if every forwarding/relaying system can override it with its own ARC seal, what's the point of having it?
Winston: "Charles, why have we got that cage?"
Charles: "Er, security?"
Winston: "That's right, that's right: security. So what's the point in having it, if we're not gonna fucking use it?"
#^Lock, Stock and 2 Smoking Barrels - Cage scene
So, by the time the world starts to be really careful with whose seals they're trusting, the big ones will have theirs on every allow-list on every system in the world. They can offer mailinglists and email forwarding that "just works", while at the same time being able to manipulate the email flow and getting away with breaking signatures.
The smaller shops that run legitimate mailsystems but can't get the whole world to trust their seal, are going to see some of their forwarded messages being rejected. For every rejected message they should contact the receiver and convince them to add their ARC seal to their "trusted ARC sealer" list, as Microsoft calls it:
So their customers, when confronted with email delivery problems, will hear the same advice over and over again: just use Google or Microsoft, that works.
As a small mailadmin from the Light Side, I don't think I like ARC very much.

Intel works for Linux gaming | Vulkan sparse support for newer games on Arc GPU's ℹ️
This one's needed for running many new DirectX 12 Windows made games via Valve's Steam Play using VKD3D-Proton.
Own an Intel Arc GPU and game? These'll work now then:
►Street Fighter 6
►Assassin's Creed Valhalla
So happy to finally have the Safari / iCloud Passwords available in Arc (or any other Chrome-based browser)
Projects I hope to release in the next year include:

...It is aimed mainly at people with a link to the county of Somerset in England, e.g. living there or nearby, being born there, having Somerset ancestors etc. But I hope anyone can enjoy it!
My book differs from others in its focus on women, its timescale from pre-Roman times to the 20th century and its inclusion of Somerset’s incredible diversity in terms of ethnicity, religion, culture, sexuality and so on.
#somerset #localHistory #book #arc
I'm looking for readers for my upcoming book about women in #Somerset through the ages. Details in comments.
You get to read it in advance in exchange for a review (and any short feedback you'd like to give me e.g. typos).
Reviews can be on Amazon, Smashwords, Google Play, Barnes & Noble, Apple Books etc. And the book can be sent as an epub, mobi or PDF file.
DM or comment below if you're interested!
No need to let Google track your potential ad interests baked into a browser. The times of “don’t be evil” are long long past.
Saying good bye to #Arc browser. After several months of trying to use it, it just doesn’t mesh with my brain. The only feature I liked as the slim border, which made presenting a site in a zoom call quite nice. Otherwise, Arc and #Chrome are gone. #Safari and #Firefox remain in. It appears that the Firefox made Multi-account containers add-on will do roughly what Arc profiles did. Bon chance Arc!
Been using #ArcBrowser since March, but now I’m kind of fed up with it. I’m sure its amazing and I’m probably using only about 5% of its potential but the learning curve has been pretty steep.
I often have to go back to Safari because “it just works”, where the #Arc experience is so different that I find my productivity being reduced because of it.
Also it less well integrated than Safari with the Apple ecosystem, but that I knew from the start.
Made an #Arc boost to get this beautiful dinosaur into my Gmail.
I used to have it back in Atlantean times when I was running SquirrelMail on DreamHost.
@Syltti @matt @ayeayerobot OK my initial findings: The Arc interface is very different to Chrome, very quirky and takes a while to work out. On initial load there are a lot of annoying howtos that may be useful. There are some useful things beyond themes, like the notes (Markdown) and the little Arc browser. I kind of like it, if only it wasn't Chromium underneath (bonus your extensions can load and be imported from other Chrome based browsers). #arc #arcbrowser
For all its advantages, I find the opaque nature of #Arc’s business model concerning, given its heavy VC funding. See https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2023/07/the-browsing-companys-unconventional-browser-arc-releases-publicly-on-mac/
Say what you like about #Brave, but their monetization is transparent and you can opt out with a click. #Vivaldi is bootstrapped and seems to be making enough with search engine deals, automotive, etc. to sustain themselves.
But Arc? Who knows? Time will tell, but the possibility of eventual #enshittification seems very real.
Der alternative Browser #Arc ist jetzt allgemein verfügbar (also ohne Einladung). Ich benutze den Browser – der wie viele andere auf #Chromium basiert – schon seit einer längeren Zeit und er macht einiges anders und teilweise auch besser als andere #Browser .
Some good ideas, like pinned tabs. (Will soon be copied I would think.)
Some concerning: lots of data apparently gets sent to Google, unless you turn if off/
Some features I would miss from Firefox, particularly containers. I have walled off some companies (like Meta) and use them to easily access multiple accounts at others (like Mastodon.social)
But the biggest question is: what's their business model? They have venture investment.
"Arc browser is now available to download for everyone"
No, it is only available for iPhone users and Mac users, who are not everyone.
In fact, most people are on Android (mobile) or on Windows (laptop/desktop).
When will these writers realize that Apple users are still a minority?
Just boosted #Arc's reader view to set my own fonts, font sizes, and paragraph max-width. 🥰
Projects I hope to release in the next year include:
IMAGINARI - a sci-fi and fantasy poetry collection
TAVERN TALE - a sapphic fantasy novella inspired by RPG side quest set in cozy autumn
