Uhm...

(already proposed but NOT accepted in the FU forum)

Well, AFAIK FairUse is a standalone-player oriented backup tool.
I can't understand why it can't do (K)VCD/SVCD by using QuEnc/FreeEnc.
I hope to see a theora-only based version (that means REALLY free backup) too.

Anyway good app.

Maybe you should ask Wilbert to add these features, he seems to be very active lately on the FairUse project...

You can always ask me, but I'm not a coder If the FU folks don't add it, it won't be added in the near future.

Done! See first post. Btw, we didn't have to test it yet.

@bourtzovlakas

what's the problem ? I run a short test encoding with success.
Rar archive will put out a FU.exe.

I suggest you to launch first fu_le.exe just one time and then exit. Next time launch fu.exe and all is ok.

best regards

BHH

Tried that also.....no luck....(after uninstalling,re-installing of course).
I get the error message about light edition not being able to produce files larger than 700 Mb.....
I must be doing something wrong,but i can understand what....

Thanks

Ok, I replaced it a few minutes ago (see first post of this thread).

Could you check it whether it really produces encodings > 700 Mb.

There is no "trick" in the code. If FU allows you to set higher than 700 MB file size, then it's ok.

Please note there is a bug that will produce really small file sizes if you ask for a size over 3.5-4GB. This will be fixed in the next release.

I didn't allow you to. Perhaps you forgot the remove the restriction in the code (that you uploaded to the website)?

UMP, are the original authors (fu2k) mentioned somewhere in the documentation?

The available source code is the one used to build the publicly available release, as required by the GPL. But you already know this, osn't it ?

I always had the feeling that fu2k doesn't like "advertising" around his name. I have the feeling I should't name him unless he explicitly asks to be.

If my presence on this forum is no longed desired, please feel free to shutdown my account.


@Wilbert:

Obviously you don't like the way things have gone with FU, but you should remember what happened after the source code was released : nothing.

It appeared that no one was willing to bring the FU project back to life. I then did my best to update FU and bring it where it is today. Had you rather the project to stay in an idle state forever ?

Here is a quote of a discussion I had with fu2k :
Quote:
fu2k: As long as you stick to the GPL (ie. keeping source code available), then you can decide whether you want to charge or not, I don't mind either way.

However, if you decide to charge a fee, I expect that one of the following will happen:

(a) The fee will discourage people from using the software, and the userbase will shrink substantially, or

(b) Someone else will get the source, build it and host the downloads themself without charging.

You need to think about this and do what is right for you. As long as the GPL is respected, I am not too worried about what happens.

fu2k


ump: To be honest, I really hope to see (b) happen, which would allow for wide distribution while some people will get it from the FU website. Of course, the source code will still be available.

Of course, if I had to definitely stop working on the project, I would make the latest source code and build available for free download.
Now the point is, I'm still having lot of pleasure to work on FU. Unlike the author of AutoGK, lack of motivation is not the reason why I decided to charge for the download. I decided to charge because I had and still don't have no other choice ATM.

This said, think what you want to, it does no longer much matter to me, I'm getting used to see past FU enthusiasts spit on me and my current position.

Regards,

ump

Fairuse 1.1 is out (see first post). Please check it doesn't add the logo to your encoding.
