ds.jar

I've just discovered ds.jar after a long and infuriating experience with PVAStrumento. The question I have is do I need to have the complete j2re installed to run it? I have just done a fresh XP install and I want to keep things lean.

Whoops. That was the SDK... I just got the RE. Sorry to waste your time.

You may be interested in x08, the successor of ds.jar, too. Just to mention it, if you didn't already know.

@bb
Could you perhaps put ds.jar and project X08 into perspective. There has been a lack of clarity in the past. Feel free to provide a developmental overview or at least a link to it.

Hi,

It seems that the forums have moved to another location. The new forums are here:

Cheers.

I was aware of it's new location and its new GNU GPL status but my German language skills are poor. It is a good thing that the project is coded in English but bad that how to use is only in German. It is a excellent piece of software and a credit to the author/s talents. Herr BB can you help. What are those German forums saying about Project X08 (formerly ds.jar)

Thanks BB, I am aware of 'X' but not sure what it has to offer over the old DS. I, too, only speak english unfortunately.

Joe_Bloggs,

if you look at http://forum.lucike.de/viewtopic.php...acfe6e59fb84c2 you'll find that the changelogs are in English.

As I already mentioned "Project X" is the successor of ds.jar. Currently it's new features - besides bug fixes - are:
- new cutting function
- a preview window

Hope that helps.

I have been here before in a locked thread.

Situations change!
I just wanted to know if
everyone agreed that it was GPL and was
legitimately published and set free by the author.

In the 'Windows XP' update section there is this: -

Q810243 Update: Watch television shows recorded by Media Center PCs on other Microsoft Windows XP PCs
Download size: 587 KB
This supplement is an update to Microsoft® Windows® XP Service Pack 1 (SP1). Users who want to play Media Center PC digital recording files (.dvr-ms) in any other Windows XP SP1 system should download this update. You must use a player that supports DirectShow® and have a Windows XP compatible DVD decoder installed. Windows Media® Player Series 9 is an example of a DirectShow player that can support .dvr-ms files with this download.


Can somebody please explain what '.dvr-ms' is?

I assumed that, but in fact I don't know... Seems like I have to collect some more information.
