I'm going to show you how to record video in OBS that will import directly into Davinci Resolve (free edition) on .

That said, there's a catch.

fun with linux 

Amazing.

I have the Zoom client installed on my computer (the only things I use it for don't need encryption). And every time I leave the computer for any length of time, when I come back, the Zoom client has started on its own.

It's not a specific interval. It's not a specific time. It just seems to be any time I'm away from the computer for more than 15 minutes; when I wake the computer back up, Zoom's sitting there, waiting.

I check running daemons, I poke at background tasks - nothing.
Finally, it occurs to me: "when I wake the computer up". So on a hunch, I check xscreensaver - which has an oooold screensaver called "zoom". I don't have that screensaver installed, but it's listed in the possible screensavers, so xscreensaver checks for it - and it doesn't just check the screensavers directory, it checks $PATH too.

I remove the "zoom" line from ~/.xscreensaver - and the problem goes away.

So I decided I would code along however I would refactor the code with the best of my ability do it in a modern C++ fashion as well.
Hell even a partly just good C++98 practices, using RAII for starters and also standard container if possible due to working with a C API like OpenGL.

Now I'll push each lesson I've completed to my GitLab repo: rb.gy/fbt9mu

I got this video series/tutorial in a recent humblebundle: rb.gy/gcywcf

And this seemed like a good testing candidate of my NAS, so I downloaded the zip and extracted it to my NAS mount point. So far so good.

Then I started watching the videos on my phone with VLC, and the C++ style the instructor was using infuriated me. Within the basic setup the instructor "leaked" the gui teardown after just a few lines before "ensuring" it was cleaned up before exit. rb.gy/5nzbc9

Not bad for a personal NAS either. I have 4 newer dm-smr 6TB wd red using raidz1(~RAID5) in a freenas mini xl. That I use pretty much the same way and run a few services like dns, pi-hole, quassel and a minecraft vm for the home network.

@strider
Lunduke did give me an idea, one should make an app image of the LGP version with glibc and gtk1.2...

@Adam_Stambaugh
Yeah for me it's about $30 price increase for replacement drives.

But that might not be all, since my nas is more of a personal storage I only do massive io occasionally. However there do seem to be timeouts when I rsync large numbers of files.

Thanks wd now I have this to worry about with my NAS, red's were supposed to be what you use in one's RAID to get better and more storage.

Well the brightside, at least it's not 4 4TB Red efax drives in my FreeNAS mini
