Announcements and News / Website / Forum / Mail Back online (20-Nov 2019)
« Last post by Mathias (Author) on November 20, 2019, 18:24:08 »
The MultiCommander website and forum and mail system is coming back online.
It all when down after a internet provider network change. It should have been down for only an hour. But because of some very strange and annoying reason it took them 3day to fix it.
(Everything that could go wrong did)

Everything is starting to work again. It might take up to a day until everything for everyone, since the IP was changed the domains was updated and since the domain is cached in many places on the internet it can for some people take up to a day before the are provided the correct IP address.

Yes times are presented in local time. But that are converted only in the UI for presentation.

Not sure what the problem is or how to recreate it

All filetimes on NTFS are UTC
Yes, but at display is the sumer time. And while running as Admin something is different, for the dayly work is it not recommendable because there are some other problems. Maybe the last Windwos Update changed something.....

1. No that will not work since it is not really dead code.. it is just unused code. It will not be able to removed it.
2. But as I said. Windows is able to get that information. And I think it will be possible to ask windows about it. However it does not support as much as that MediaInfo.
3. Maybe later a option downloadable plugin to MC can be added that exposes all properties in MediaInfo to MC. BUT it will be optional and installed separately

Hi Mathias,

Thank you for your quick & helpful answer :)

1. Wrt DCE, I know what you call "bloat" in MediaInfo is not dead code in absolute terms, it's just unused code (from the point of view of MC). I was just suggesting that you use DCE techniques which would work in this case (because MC would call into the MediaInfo code only the "length" routine (and maybe a few other ones) and all the MediaInfo code that is not used by the "length" routine would be left unused by MC and hence can be viewed as technically dead from the point of view of MC).

I know about DCE and I use it a lot. Problem is that MediaInfo is not written in a way so that each property you ask for have its own clean code path, so the compiler can't detect what is used or not based on what is called. Because a lot of the evaluation of what the the MediaInfo code will do are decided in runtime.

What DTS problem ? All filetimes on NTFS are UTC

It do remember previous size and position unless you turned that off

Close MultiRename Window . ehh ESC key does not work for you ?
7
And possibly make Start the default button when you press Enter, or give it a shortcut key.
And please also some means of closing the multirename window by keyboard. So that when i'm working with it don't have to switch to the mouse.
Thanks.

When copy to a protected Folder. But the Daylight Savings problem when run MC completely as Administrator is fixed now. Good Work. We have Winter Time and the Daylight Savings Problem was maybe in winter time but dont know it was with winzter time files or summer time files.

Or to put it another, simpler way, I'm looking for something that applies to no just the focused file, but all selected files.

Hi Mathias,

2. You could probably use Windows API/libs indeed as it seems MS Explorer provide the multimedia file length info in most case (although on my Windows 7, around 10% of multimedia files do not show a length in MS Explorer (and neither in some other 3rd party file managers that also probably use Windows API/libs)). Using Windows API/libs would not be perfect for that purpose but that would definitely be an improvement.

3. Providing a separately downloadable plugin to MC that could expose all properties in MediaInfo to MC would be simply amazing :) :) :)
As previously mentioned, in addition to exhaustively providing the time length of almost all possible multimedia files, it could also provide information about file codecs for example, which is extremely useful for anybody trying to play multimedia files on various devices :)
This would definitely give MC a big advantage over all existing file explorers that I know :)
You could then maybe even ask the MediaInfo team to kindly put a link from their website to your website which I am sure would bring in quite a few new MC users for you as well :)
Fingers crossed, you'll be able to implement that soon, that would be so useful & mind-blowing :) :) :)

Thank you again Mathias and have a nice week-end :)
