I need help with my presentation for my class regarding a powerpoint file that has a slideshow of pictures, video and music for each section of pictures/videos.

My problem is, when I use a music file for a section of pictures, it will play throughout and it will be fine. When it comes to the next section and a different song to be played, the next song plays but the previous song continues to play and overlaps the next section.... and every section overlaps and it sounds like a mess.

I clicked "play in background" and that's what I want - but I don't want every song to overlap. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong so hopefully I get some answers here.

You should really consider assembling the portions of the presentation that have sound into a video instead. The problem you'll face with your current approach is that audio/all other content sync will fuck itself if ANYTHING about your playback situation changes.

Playing from external storage (like an idiot)? Your photos will be read slower. Playing back on a laptop that's not exactly the same as the one you created it on? Sync is fucked. Guaranteed.

Just bite the bullet and use Windows Movie maker for this shit. Put it through Handbrake on a normal/low profile preset for max compatibility and smooth playback, then drop it into the powerpoint in the appropriate place. Go to the animation tab and set it to play "with previous."

Test your shit repeatedly. Make sure your aspect ratio matches the screen you're going to present on.

Sincerely a guy who watches people give presentations every damn day.
>>
>>63439823
I was initially going to create it via movie maker, as I have done so many times in the past with YouTube videos. The jerk off in charge of the presentation said that powerpoint has the "best" quality due to it being projected onto a screen... which is bullshit, because I expanded my video clips and it just becomes pixelated... however, not my problem.

I was asked to make a class presentation and I did it. It's up to them to quarrel over it if they want to.

>That's C++ for you:
Go back to the wrapping libraries part. Most of these languages can't wrap C, so even if shit is written in C++, there ends up being a C wrapper to interface it to other languages: See for example jack2, which is written in C++, but its API is still a C api.

Nobody is rewriting gtk (or writing their own widget kits) in their toy language because it's a huge amount of work. If every language was going to write its own toolkit people would get nowhere. Having it in C gives it largest exposure, which is why people will use it instead of the superior Qt. They can't wrap Qt because their language only has a FFI to C.

Choosing any language other than C for a plumbing program is basically a way to determine that it'll never be successful. Consider Wayland, in it's attempt to displace X. Do you think it would be taken seriously if it were written in Python or Java?

I'm not trying to argue in any way that C is a great language here, just that it is impossible to avoid because the entire *nix operating system is build around its calling convention. For as long as we're using these operating systems it'll be alive and kicking. Even new kernels being written now are mostly C, although some are using C++ or mix of both.

>VGA doesn't really have a limit since it is analog.
The cable design itself does, though; especially the connector. If you wanted to push VGA signalling higher, you would've most likely wanted to switch to something with coaxial color cables, akin to picture.

What makes the sound in old, bad CRTs isn't anything related to the h-sync signal, it's that the flyback transformer can go bad and make winding noise. I don't know if there's a reason for them to tend to operate in the audible spectrum, but that's where the noise comes from.
>>
>>63440074
During horizontal blanking, output is cut to make it as invisible as possible.
The difference in load is what ties the sound to the horizontal frequency.
>>
>>63438487
BFI lowers light output which is no good for HDR. Once they can get NITS above 1000 maybe they will consider BFI.

Anyone remember a post about the possibility of embedding malware in a machine learning algorithm? I remember the poster saying something along the lines of the malware being impossible to detect because the algorithm is opaque to the operating system. Is there any truth to this or was he full of shit?

I work for a company that does IT for dozens of small businesses and these are pretty much standard for Windows Server Backup. We have maybe one or two of these fail a year out of probably 100 (we usually put two or three in rotation). Not exactly enterprise-tier reliability but as long as we have at least one good backup who cares?

But I definitely wouldn't recommend these (or USB flash drives for that matter) for storing important data.

External HDDs, in my experience, fail due to rough handling.

SSDs fail totally randomly.

>>63433650
Every laptop is a meme, just get one that isn't overpriced. If you are looking to play games on it try to save about $600 and snipe one on cyber monday. Do some research and see if you can find one with a battery life longer than 1hr, gaming laptops unfortunately suck the life out of their batteries. I know Nvidia has a GUI that will let you change from running their card to using an intel GPU to save power, I'd look into that.
