    Project mention: Is there a new limit on the size an mp4 video can be before it doesn't embed itself? Never used to have this issue, even when sending longer clips. | | 2022-09-23

    For reference, I personally use FFmpeg for most, if not all, of my media. Maybe Premiere does something special, but all I know is that FFmpeg is reliable in a way that it's extremely transparent in what it does and how it does it, and what it does is 100% standard, nothing special ever being applied.

    State-of-the-art ASR, like what you get on smartphones, has unfortunately high resource requirements. Some recent smartphone models are able to run ASR on-device, but more typically, ASR is done by sending audio to a web service. Check out the (currently experimental) Web SpeechRecognition API in a Chrome browser. Here is a demo of the API in action. For something open source, check out Kaldi ASR.

    I'm also a programmer, and what I found very exciting is :

  • BlackHole

    BlackHole is a modern macOS virtual audio driver that allows applications to pass audio to other applications with zero additional latency.

    Project mention: Routing Audio Driver to an app | | 2022-09-27

    What I have is a small macOS app that takes the input from a system default device (MBP microphone) and routes it to a custom driver (think BlackHole ExistentialAudio-BlackHole). I can record the sound perfectly fine through audacity (when the app is in its recording state) ONLY when I manually select the default output device (in the Audio MIDI Setup, or sound preferences) to the BlackHole driver. What I want to achieve is to route the audio to the custom driver independently of the currently selected output device (in the settings), think Discord app and their settings panel, where you can select any output device that you want without changing the output manually in the Audio MIDI Setup, and all of the "audio passthrough" will be unaffected.

  • AudioKit

    Project mention: Xcode 13: "Add packages" doesn't do anything | | 2022-05-12

  • OpenFrameworks

    openFrameworks is a community-developed cross platform toolkit for creative coding in C++.

    Project mention: Apple rendering system | | 2022-09-25

    No big secret. I'm using openFrameworks for the creation of this 2D world with a custom implementation of a very basic physics engine but there are plenty of libraries you can use to achieve something like this. The simulation is in real time (let's say capped at 60fps) and then I render a video or the frame sequence of the process. SD takes them sequentially as input images for the diffusion process.

There’s a also bunch of different frameworks you could use for game development and they each have tutorials and documentation that’ll help get you started. I recommend checking out SDL ( or GLFW ( or SFML ( Also maybe try out Raylib ( I personally use GLFW but it’s a bit more bare bones than other frameworks and may not be the best to begin with. Hope these links help!

    Uses to play sound. It's actually surprising how hard it was to find a cross-platform Python module to play sound that doesn't require an external dependency like ffmpeg. Even then, modules like don't support features like seeking/scrubbing, which was a must-have for my project.
