ALVIN And The Chipmunks

While I try to find an update to play HD BD, it came with an ordinary DVD copy.
So while I find updates to play Blue Ray, I placed it in.
Instantly wet eyes. When that happens, I am enjoying the movie.
I am having problems writing this, so it's quits.    :D

I just downloaded Alvin and the Chipmunks 3 and watched it.  It wasn't in HD though, as my computer plays HD at about one-fifth of normal speed. It does standard DVD, but just barely.  If I so much as move my mouse, a DVD will skip frames. I'm that close to the line of not being able to play them.

Anyway, The movie was pretty good. Getting to see Simon in his wet hoodie, and Theodore in a dirty hoodie was a bonus.  I was stopping the movie, zooming in, and admiring their cuteness one frame at a time during some scenes.  I plan on buying this one, as I do with any good movies I download.  I download first and decide if a movie is something I really like.  If it is, then I add it to my list of ones to buy. That gets me the bonus features and commentaries, which are almost always missing in downloaded movies.

AHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!
1.5GHz x 4 runs Really nice.
There's plenty of speed in this notebook, but PowerDVD isn't yet setup for my video card.
So, in order to play a BD HD in here, I need compatible software to the hardware.
I probably could have ripped, and encoded one of my movies by now, as I only really care to watch them.

They all look great. All I already wanna do, is yiff em one at a time. Starting from Alvin, and then Theodore, ending with Simon. If I could, I would let them sandwich me between Alvin and Theodore.
Their pick in positions, I'll screw either one of them two.

This movie I just bought, and enjoyed right off the bat.



PS


If you know of compatible software, please let me know.

Video is what isn't fully going through.
AMD Radeon(TM) HD 6520G
It's plenty fast, but PowerDVD isn't compatible.
It's a bloody pain.

I've always used Media Player Classic (open source).  It plays DVDs perfectly fine without needing to add any codecs.  It claims to play Blu-Ray as well, but I never tried to download one of those, due to their insane size.  I have verified that Media Player Classic will handle HD at 1080p, that I downloaded from YouTube. Unfortunately, my video card is so slow that they just won't play at the proper speed.  They are very clear though.  I've never seen a DVD that Media Player Classic couldn't play. I often use it to play my store bought DVDs.

If you prefer a different player, then you'll likely need to run your DVDs and Blu-Rays through a program called DVD Decrypter.  It will strip the Region and RCE codes, so that the videos with play freely on anything that can handle standard mpeg-2. That pretty much means any player made in the past 15 years.

One of these days I really should get a newer video card. The one I have is extremely slow. It's ok for browsing, but playing large dimension videos is not going to happen. By that, I mean anything much over 864x480p. That allows for playing anamorphic DVDs, but no more than that.

This I know, as does the one with (Combined Community Codec Pack.) which comes with their own version of MPC.
mpc doesn't play BD files, but will load directly DVD files. Since most discs have chapters, it doesn't matter if you can always return or not.

Damn it FoxWolfie, we are both such geeks. I haven't yet attempted DVD Decrypter, I am just not sure how well it would handle a BD. Eventually I probably will be interested in ripping, but I always gotta keep in mind a BD's size.
(LOTR; The Fellowship Of The Ring) is 38.1GB
A 1TB drive, doesn't sound so big anymore, does it?
It's one of the things which discourages me from wanting to rip a BD. (Blu-Ray Disc. - BD. The first B, and the D in disc.)
Region coding is (A) instead of (1). it means the same thing.

MPC can actually do higher then 1080p, as I have had it playing 1920x1280 already. (BD is 1920x1024.) Sure, it's not much bigger, but it also proves AMD decodes well. I done this on the Dell, running a little over 2GHz, with only a single core.
AMD Decodes at high speed. It takes Intel a bit more on some sides, to decode the same thing.
Back in the Slot A days, is where you see this most. The suggested Intel speed for DVD Rom was higher then that of an AMD.
It took back then 1GHz to run a DVD on an Intel, but only like 850MHz on any AMD. But start encoding stuff on an Intel system, ans compare it with the same speed AMD. It's a shame no one will build a one of each, dual server board.

If you are gonna do it, you outa just get a new, newer used, already yesterday's news, HD compatible computer.
4 core yesterday's news CPU, and then wait to get the next part. I wanna do that, as I hopefully but a Tax house.
Some of them are even half nice. The only thing I care about that much, is a good and solid foundation.
Lately, Lebanon is doing a good job of Condemning.
Anyways, lets go onto the next thing.



Again, get a yesterday's news piece at a time. Like a socket 939 or 940. Get like only a 2GHz like what I have in the Dell.
Hell, for what I am using it for, I could be running a Slot A with PCI Sata cards. Since it's currently just being used for network, I could have it running Windows 98Se, and it would still be just fine. Win 98Se will do Ethernet.
My Dell could probably run Win98Se, if I formatted the drives to FAT32.
Just because they are SATA drives, doesn't mean they can't be formatted for FAT File system.
Just that, you would have to split certain sized drives.


For you, that wouldn't be that big a deal, I know you pretty well.
Well?
You would rather up your collection to 2200 plushies, rather then 2000.
How much though could you get the processor that's in my Dell for?
10$ or less.
A compatible board?
30$ or less, probably.
I don't even think it's the processor which makes it worth anything, but the gold in the pins.24K

I ran myself out of characters.
24K gold or something, on the fragile pins. The only part that retains any value.


Anywho, please give it some thought, as you could almost get the parts for the same as a handful more plushies.  ;-)

DVD Decrypter definitely rip BD discs. It's one of the built-in menu functions.  Then there are programs like Shrink9to5 and Shrinkbd2dvd. That first one converts dual layer 9 gig DVDs down to single layer 5 gig DVDs.  It's actually closer to 4.77 gigs.  Those loss in quality is not visible on anything less than a 40-inch screen.  The other one converts BD files down to DVD size, either in single or dual layer format.  There are dual layer bd discs that are approaching 50 gigs now!

MPC even plays 4096p perfectly fine.  That's 7,200x4,096!  The program should work all the way up to 32,000x32,000, if someone had such material to play, and a system that could keep up with it.  One of my friends played an h264 encoded video at 7200x4096 on his quad core computer. It played, but dropped a frame here and there. He has some $600 gaming video card in it though.  Blu-Ray is actually 1920x1080.  4096p HD crams 15 times as many pixels on the screen at the same time!  You think BD files are big?  How would you like to download a 650 gig movie!  By the way, the movie, Avatar, was mastered in digital 4096p, and it is starting to be a standard in the movie-making industry.  I doubt most home users will ever need it, since a monitor that can display it without remapping the image runs for around $80,000 right now.  Only the movie making industry can afford that sort of thing.

Generally, if a movie is over around a gig, I won't bother to download it.  Most DivX or Xvid encoded movies in DVD quality take up about 500 megs per hour, so most movies tend to fall under a gig.  For special movies, I might download an actual ISO file of the DVD, which I've seen range from can run from 3 to 8 gigs, depending on if it came from a dual layer disc or not. Even with good DivX compression, a BD is going to be in the 6 gig range and BD ISO files are usually between 20 and 45 gigs!

I have a terabyte drive, and it would be filled with just a few dozen movies, if I did HD. As it is, with standard DVD resolution, I have over 700 movies on the drive and it still has almost 300 gigs free.  Needless to say, I'm in no big hurry to switch to HD for downloaded files.  My TV is full 1080p, and all of the over the air stations are in HD, so I know what it looks like. Though I easily see the difference, it isn't worth the cost of replacing my collection of over 400 DVDs, or even turning on cable service.

Not only will Win98se do ethernet, but plain DOS and also Win 3.11 will as well. I ran an ethernet network between my Win 3.11 system, a DOS system, and my roommate's win 95 system, back when Win 95 came out.  It was actually more responsive and reliable than when people connect to my current network from a vista or Win 7 system.  XP and 98 still seem to be the best for speed, capability and reliability, when doing networking.

I can imagine partitioning an 80 gig drive into smaller FAT32 drives.  I believe 32 gigs is the limit for FAT32.  It would be a nightmare to try that on a terabyte drive though!  You'd quickly run out of drive letters.  Remember that A: and B: are reserved. You'd need one reserved for your DVD drive, and also a few for network drives, if you ran a network.  That leave maybe usable 20 letters at the most.  Of course nothing says someone can't make just one or two partitions FAT32, FAT16, or even FAT12.  I'd have to look it up, but I believe FAT12 allows up to 4 megs par disk! Not a problem when it was used on 1.4 meg floppies of course.

My processor is a dual core 2.9 Ghz Intel.  That is not the bottleneck here. It's definitely the VIA/S3G UniChrome 1GP video card.  The card can drive a monitor up to 1920x1440 at 75Hz.  That's better than Blu-Ray.  That's great for browsing and word processing.  It's a dreadfully slow card though, and it could never keep up with a video of that size, and modern gaming would be completely out of the question.  Luckily, I don't like gaming. I may swap it out one day, when I feel the need.

I couldn't find that with DVD Decrypter, like it actually matter that much to me currently.

when it's practical having a like, 50 foot screen in your house, then maybe. otherwise, I doubt seriously, there's any noticeable difference.

this depends, but most people don't understand it.

720x480 1,000 or so KBits is usually plenty. most times, you can get away with less then 1,000.
720p 1,000 - 3,000 KBits. It seems to fit well in the middle someplace, as I have encoded a few.
And 1080p, seems to still fit under 5,000.
I toyed with it more then a few times, as I got a pretty good idea what's actually needed on bps.
You can nearly always fit a 2 hour movie into 800 bps, and then it's still under 1GB.
You could probably go as low as 700, and then near fit it on a CDR, or perfectly fit it.
Since there's little on rules there, you can always bring it down to like, 500 x 300, and then it's still larger then vcd.
560 600x 320.
It'll still look pretty good.
can't seem to convey that message to a lot of people on the net, or even off the net. The point to a DIVX file is smaller, and then still decent quality. that's the whole point to divx.

i just placed Alvin And The Chipmunks 3 in... having problems typing this reply.
here's something interesting. FAT32 isn't 32 GB, it's 127gb I believe.
don't ask me, I don't understand it.
kinda interesting, considering blu-ray doesn't exceed the upper end of FAT32. I don't rightly know honestly how far NTFS 64 bit can go, but it's better then 1TB I believe. I may be wrong though, it might only be twice 127.
my sd card is only a low fat system, and it's like 4GB. I believe it's FAT16 or something.
32 Units?
I believe it works something like that.
Like FAT12 is 12 units of a particular size.


Anyhow huggles... and laters.   ;-)

He's cute in the movie, but the plushies of him that I've seen were all of poor quality, and didn't capture his cuteness.  I have a Master Shifu plush from the same movie, and he's seen plenty of my messy attention!  :)

I wish I could find some good quality Chipmunk plushies from the new movies, that I could afford.  I keep seeing them with non-removable hoodies or no fur. I want chipmunks that actually look like their movie versions, and where the hoodie is at least separate from their body fur, so I have a fun place to slide things between!  I'd surely have the messiest plush chipmunks around.  :)

just like that little mickey, is little pants comes off, and his tail is like Fievel's.



I need to know something, can you read Acrobat 10 Docs? If so, the story I am finishing up now, I would like to share a link, which will allow you to be able to read it. It's not allowed on here, as it's Human and Animal (Fievel) mixed.
I mentioned someplace, in PM? That I suddenly was inspired to write it, so, so I have been since yesterday.
Today, currently, i am working on Chapter 3, which I believe I am gonna change the name to, Eight Times A Charm.
As Fievel loses an 8th load, and got seven of them sucked out.
Lets just say, I swallowed one of those loads in a different way.
I will be adding to the file, on both a google free site, and on SF, as a mostly blank submission... announcing that I have written it.
It's longer then some of my works, probably because Fievel and I are in it together, and able to do anything our hearts desire, without interruption. Of course, we do somewhat have to worry about Fievel's parents.  hehe.


I love writing Fievel into my stories though, as I feel like writing faster that way.  :D

Actually, I have a hard time with any Acrobat/pdf files.  They view as I imagine most people would like, but since I require zooming to around 300 percent to read them, I have to be constantly scrolling left to right and down all the time.  It's the most annoying way to read I've ever seen - all because Acrobat files don't reflow text to wrap at my screen width.  Even simple HTML will auto wrap at the screen width, no matter what size I happen to use.  All of my plain text viewers do too, but Acrobat insists on presenting things the way the writer wants them, instead of how the reader needs them.  On top of that, they can be 4 to 100 times the size of the same file in plain text.

I have a 9-inch Mickey with blue pants and a red shirt that are removable. I've cummed on him a lot, right on his face and clothes, since they are soft.

If you can read stuff on here, then you are in luck. I may be changing it to work with the rest of (An American Tail; The Mystery Of The Pirates Treasure.) as that was the original name of my mixture sex mixture story. The reason I may be changing it, is because it originally started DennyMouse. I do that,, then both main characters are mice, and within the rules here.
In addition, if I can find the original long story, I am gonna share it here.
Weight Booby-trap door. Only with the paw the size of a cat, and more then one mouse, can open the Treasure room door.
Unfortunately, if this would ever be turned into a G-Rated story, and a movie, Tiger's original voice character hasn't been with us any longer in years.

My Mickeys didn't any longer have their original colors, as I had peed and came on them.   xD
Gawds I sometimes wish I still had them.
