While CyberLink PowerDirector 18 or newer can handle HEVC/H.265 files, it has a habit of crashing when ingesting HEVC files produced by Go Pro and other recording systems.

LibreSpeed on FreeBSD
I needed a mobile speed test server for my network diagnostics laptop recently. I have been using LibreSpeed in the office for quite some time so along with iperf3 on the same laptop, it was the logical choice.
freebsd-update 13.0 caveats
By: Jason Tubnor @tubsta We have been performing some extensive and edge case updates from FreeBSD versions earlier than 13.0. While in most cases, there have been no issues and most users will have a smooth upgrade process when we finally have 13.0-RELEASE hit but there are some issues that we hit which will need …
Upgrading to FreeBSD 13.0
By: Jason Tubnor @tubsta An email hit the freebsd-stable mail list the other day that reminded me with the upcoming release of FreeBSD 13 that includes OpenZFS 2.0, there is a bit of housekeeping that is required post upgrade, especially if you want to take advantage of the new zpool(8) features.
FreeBSD 13.0 – Full Desktop Experience
By: Jason Tubnor @tubsta With the release of FreeBSD 13.0 on the horizon, I wanted to see how it shapes up on my Lenovo T450 laptop. Previous major releases on this laptop, using it as a workstation, felt very rough around the edges but with 13, it feels like the developers got it right. I …
Camera SD card under OpenBSD
As file sizes increasingly become bigger in cameras such as Go Pro and Canon EOS D, the FAT file system has become unfit for purpose. As such, instead of looking to an open source file system (probably due to no support in the Windows or Mac platforms), these camera manufacturers have just done a bump …
OpenBSD and SNMPd
OpenBSD comes with a SNMP v2c and v3 daemon in base. Simplistic and privileged separated, this SNMP service is easy to configure and secure – putting Simple, backing into Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). Recently, I have needed to flick on snmpd(8) to provide data to the Cacti logging service. The default configuration in /etc/examples/snmpd.conf …
Swiffy plugin for WordPress
I have just moved a WordPress instance from a standard cPanel installation, into a custom OpenBSD host. Everything ran smoothly from a data point of view but when I went to test the installation I got a 500 error. Turning on php error logging gave me the information I needed to start debugging the issue.
OpenBSD on Digital Ocean
For OpenBSD users, it has been pretty disappointing that Digital Ocean didn’t launch other BSDs with introduction of FreeBSD, even though the technical barrier had been removed to allow it. Today, I thought I’d try doing an OpenBSD load again (I have tried before without success due to CPU feature issues) and the results were …
OpenBSD audio in virtualisation
While some use the documentation correctly and search the mailing lists, sometimes the answers don’t come up correctly due to formatting or google having issues indexing. As I use OpenBSD more and more as a daily driver (be it still in VMWare Workstation on one machine and Virtual Box on the other), I still don’t …
