OpenSim news: warning sign ;)A lot can happen in a week’s time. Especially if it involves OpenSim: green dots on the mini-map get fixed, avatars now look in the right direction when staring at a fellow avie, physics is enabled and a lot more solid/stable and megaprims holding entire regions are born imported using XML.

So? Time to celebrate and throw an OpenSim party at Zion/Ruth. (That it’s a great way to test performance as well, well… :p)

Short ‘Vintish’ machinima from the OpenSim crash party (and there are rumours that other - probably better - machinima’s are being filmed/processed as we speak):

Icky, ugly, YouTube compression! :( :( :( Anybody knows a better video hosting thingie with embed functionality?

For those who need a recap on how to login to OpenSim Ruth: if you want to try Ruth out for yourself, and test the OpenSim, Testa User to Testz User are available for your exploration pleasures. This is how you do it:

  • If you have a shortcut to the Second Life client on your desktop, copy it and name it ‘Second Life OpenSim Ruth’. If not, create one.
  • Right click it and look at it it’s properties. Normally under ‘Target’ it says: “C:\Program Files\SecondLife\SecondLife.exe” -set SystemLanguage en-us. Just add -loginuri http://ruth.petitbe.be:9000/ to the end of it, so you get “C:\Program Files\SecondLife\SecondLife.exe” -set SystemLanguage en-us -loginuri http://ruth.petitbe.be:9000/.
  • Use that shortcut to open the Second Life client. You should automatically connect to Ruth. As user name you can choose from Testa User up to Testz User, and the pass for all is ‘test’.

And the second option, which is my prefered one:

  • Go to ‘Start’ and then choose ‘Run’.
  • Type cd c:\program files\secondlife\ (or whatever path your SL client is located).
  • Press enter.
  • Type secondlife.exe -loginuri http://ruth.petitbe.be:9000/ .
  • Press enter.
  • See the Second Life client starting up and login with Testa to Testz User and password ‘test’ or bug Dalien (gently!) to get a private, personalised account.

If you see any Vint Falken running around, you can assume safely that’s me, so say ‘hi’. ;)

Awww, wish I could’ve joined… My ISP didn’t fix the packet loss yet. I should really yell at ‘em… By the time it’s perfectly fixed, they mess it up again with double losses! Ugh…

Try

DVD quality embedded.

Thank you, Gaynor. I will check it out! =)

I think (not entirely sure) that link I gave you needs the DivX plugin, which not everybody has installed.

So try this one…..
http://www.veoh.com
though if you check out the Add To Bog Link it only seems to support Blogger, Wordpress and Myspace. Is this a Wordpress installation?

Teehee - I wrote Add To Bog!

Gaynor, I’ve tried it, and it gives the same ugly compression squares. :(

That’s a shame - I’ve watched some high quality video from the stage6 site - you might have to translate it to the divx format first for best result.
That does site does have some problems though - it crashes IE7 (at least on my computer) - I installed Firefox purely so I could watch some old TV shows from their site.

Does Windows Moviemaker have that option? *looks sheepishly*

There’s a free trial of a convertor here…..

And for the best quality, convert from an original avi file if you can, rather than from something that’s already been compressed.

[…] see you there! ;) I’m in a pretty nostalgic mood now, as this reminds me of my first ‘Crash Test Party’ on an OpenSim back in 2007. Which seems like ages […]
