🤨

Edit: Thanks all for the troubleshooting advice but this occurred on a channel that is known to me that regularly posts 4k HDR content. At the time I tried to play it, the video had 14k views and had been up for two days. It's probably just a transient thing. I mainly thought this was funny because I'd never seen such an anemic selection of resolutions. Perhaps you guys can try to enjoy the post in that spirit.

Edit #2: I know I said we weren't troubleshooting but if anyone wants to try it out, the video is here. I tried on my phone this morning and there are only the two crappy resolutions.

Edit #3: Credit to [email protected] here. I think they came the closest to explaining the problem. After I tried this on my phone, I tried it on the laptop and all resolutions with and without HDR were available. This may indicate that something like H.264 High Profile was used for encoding which (depending on the level) may not be supported on mobile device and it would seem, set top boxes like my Roku Ultra.

Edit #4: Some others had commented about the same problem in the video comments on YT so I told the content creator what I knew and (politely) asked how the video was compressed. Will report back if I get a response.

Edit #5: Clarified a point in Edit #3. Some mobile devices may support some levels of High Profile, or at least that's my understanding.

I really really don't understand how people are either so tiny brained or so fkin inconsiderate. Probably this is the wrong community to post this, as my infuriation levels are far from mild.

Like... you look up a tutorial on a specific thing. You see a list of videos describing the very thing that you want in perfect English. You open the video to see that it is in a completely different language (usually Hindi). You then feel like personally going on a mission to assassinate that video creator. /s

Like come on... I understand that English alphabets are more readable to people who speak languages other than English. FINE. I GET IT. But would it be too much to ask to at least put the name of the fkin language that your video is actually in, in the title?

Like... it would so much better for a video title to be "(Hindi) Ranked Retrieval model explained" instead of "Ranked Retrieval model explained" and it turning out to be in Hindi. Like... do these people not think? Or do they not have a brain? Or do they just not care?

I scoured through SO MANY VIDEOS and all of them have this nonsense going on. Like come on....

Lately, I have been getting the following popup when I share various links to democratic petitions and take actions on Tribel, and it hasn't happened to me before.

So far, it has happened with trying to post the following:

  • A link to a petition to pass Automatic Voter Registration
  • A link to telling Congress to support Healthy School Meals for all
  • A link to a petition to remove Judge Aileen Cannon from Jack Smith's classified documents case against Trump
  • A link to a petition to demand the Supreme Court denies Trump’s immunity claim
  • A donation link to Stopping Third-Party Candidates Like RFK Jr. From Handing Trump Victory
  • A link to standing with Bernie Sanders in his fight to save Social Security
  • A link to telling Congress to pass the Black Maternal Health Momnibus
  • A link to a petition to demand felony charges against Cody Roberts for Animal Cruelty
  • A link to a petition to stand with President Biden and SAVE Medicare from Mike Johnson’s GOP House Majority
  • A link to Protect Pets And Wildlife From Agonizing Death in Heavy-Duty Rat Traps
  • A link to Urge Congress to pass Community Schoolyards® legislation
  • And now a link to telling your U.S. House representative to support the Plastic Pellet Free Waters Act

These links so far are from the following organizations.

  • Change.org
  • Democratic Training Committee
  • Greater Good
  • Moms Rising
  • MoveOn Political Action
  • Progressive Turnout Project
  • Public Interest Research Group
  • Stop Republicans
  • Trust for Public Land

I have tried contacting support over there numerous times already to find out what is happening, but I haven't gotten any response from them at all about it. The only answer I had gotten so far over there is from a user stating they have gotten it on occasion when I try to post a new post and think the site might have been hacked by Conservatives, or the site owner Omar may have gotten bought out by Conservatives for this to begin happening against Democratic links to help Democrats.

Right now, I'm not sure where I could be allowed to begin posting the links that are being blocked by the popup on Tribel, since I thought and it seemed like that site was left leaning. If anyone has any ideas, feel free to let me know here.

Edit: Added that it is also happening with a MoveOn donation link.

Edit: Added that it is also happening with standing with Bernie Sanders in his fight to save Social Security.

Edit: Added that it is also happening with telling Congress to pass the Black Maternal Health Momnibus.

Edit: Added that it is also happening with a petition to demand felony charges against Cody Roberts for Animal Cruelty.

Edit: Added that it is also happening with a petition to stand with President Biden and SAVE Medicare from Mike Johnson’s GOP House Majority.

I mean, I get annoyed when I see the same thing posted to two communities back to back, but 5 is ridiculous and extremely poor fediquite.

Edit: Seems the poster is some kind of spam bot. As one commenter pointed out, they seem to have spammed this to any community with "music" in the name. And it's more than shows up in the screenshot. A LOT more.

Was in south Ontario, the sky was clear for about an hour before totality, and then about 15 minutes before, a big dark cloud came in and ruined it.

Just so tired of almost every time a doctor submits stuff to insurance, we have to be the ones to make multiple phone calls to both the doctor's office and insurance to iron everything out, figure out what the issue is (it's always a different issue), and basically be the go-between for the office and insurance. What am I paying $500+/month for?! It's like paying for the privilege of having an exhausting part-time job.

And yes, I understand that insurance wants to weasel out of paying anything, but this isn't even shadiness, just straight up incompetence and lack of communication/following procedures. The amount of emotional energy we have to spend untangling this stuff leaves us drained.

Waiting for 30 minutes to access the Web site of the Road Safety Authority, the Irish equivalent of the DMV. Too bad they don't have physical offices where I could queue personally...

Please do not give me shit for using Facebook. It's how I keep in touch with relatives, most of whom live abroad, and my brother, who is has ASD prefers to communicate with me that way.

I would rather not use it, but I would prefer keeping in touch with my brother.

That said, I would not let AI keep in touch with my brother for me.

I -was- going to find a community who might help me with my problem, but then I found this place and it's obviously much more constructive to bitch about it than to actually try to fix it. Shame on me for not seeing that right away.

So my HDD died on me, and after some fussing around I ordered a shiny new replacement. So after waiting for the mailman like a proper doggo, I installed my shiny new toy, booted my pc and... on of my monitors now doesn't work.

I don't know why. I tried a new hdmi-cable, I tried a new monitor. my 2nd monitor works perfectly. I updated my drivers and tried a handstand. nothing. For the rest my pc works fine. The new hard disk works like a charm. But why doesn't my monitor work? If I fix it, will my mouse stop working?

I will still chill and play games tonight, but I will be mildly furiously staring at the black screen next to it every chance i get.

Thin Car Paint (lemmy.sdf.org)
submitted 2 weeks ago* (last edited 2 weeks ago) by [email protected] to c/[email protected]

I bought my first new car about a month ago. I found out car manufacturers basicaly put only 1 or 2 coats of paint on cars these days, so that if you even look at the car wrong, it will scratch and you'll have to take it in for touch up.

So I'm gonna do that, but then also shell out for PPF on the doors, fenders, and hood. When I shouldn't have to, and never worried about on my older cars.

I just got a bill for a Wayfair credit card that was issued by Citi bank that I did not apply for. I never even shopped on that website.

I tried contacting both Citi bank and Wayfair, but since I don't have the full account number, I couldn't get past Citi's automated phone menu.

Wayfair's phone system was a fucking nightmare getting transferred to various departments, but eventually transferred me to a foreign call center where they insisted that they needed my social security number and birth date to file a report, but I'm not giving them that.

The best thing is that the scammer managed to get a higher credit limit than I was able to get on my own card.
