Here's a quick report back on work that got accomplished today. Lots of code, coffee, and keyboards.
Here's the report back from the beginning of the third day of the media sprint here in NYC. You can see some improvements to the GUI. Today we're going to be working on several pieces- admin, formaters and stream wrappers.
This is a quick demo of the functionality that we've been developing here at the media sprint. This is obviously not polished, but it does show some of the pieces of functionality that we want to finish- functionality that we outlined earlier today on the uploader proposal on the interface group.
I generally use linux as my development environment and use OSX for everything else- all of my Mac hardware has always had issues running Eclipse- whether it is Java that is the memory and CPU hog or it is compiling all the dependencies for FFmpeg, I just have not found OSX to be suitable for my main development needs (though I do mange on my laptop).
Moving my office back home this month, I realized I would be faced with four monitors on my desk, something akin to having having a serious mission control look, which while amusing, feels way over the top for me. So I started scheming about how to just keep two monitors while having OSX for my daily tasks and linux for my work.
I contemplated doing a a dual dvi KVM switch with a USB video card for my laptop, but two problems arose with this- one, I use a bluetooth keyboard and mouse, which can only pair with one machine at a time, making the switch back and forth challenging, two, this was going to cost upwards of $400 US which I was not really prepared to spend.
