Video Recording Bugs

From 24C3 Public Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Because of a tight release schedule there is currently no extensive pre-release quality control. If you find any problems or glitches with the recordings, please report them here.


Which Videos?

Please mention the place where you got the video from, and its filename and other information.


  • Why the heck do you squeeze the PAL video to VGA resolution ? You had PAL, stay with PAL ! Don't mess the quality by shrinking the resolution ... If I wanted quirky video's I would have recorded the streams ...
  • Video files have annoying clicks at start/end of startcredits
    • yep, but we don't know why (maybe a buggy /dev/zero ?)
      • Hint: the silence is not at zero, but rather at one (seems your /dev/zero returns 1?).


    • we'll try different intros/outros starting from day3 (sak)
  • some video files (I tried mkv) are async
  • 24c3-2356-de-computer_popsongs.mkv in the official recordings should be labled "en"
  • "Programming DNA"

(ID 2329) needs to be renamed. Right now the file is called "24c3-2329-en-change_me.mkv"

  • 2247: at 13%: Too many video packets in the buffer: (4098 in 1176016 bytes). MPlayer 1.0pre7try2-3.4.4 24c3-2247-en-breaking_a_vm.mkv (30 Dec)
  • 24c3-2255-de-wahlchaos.mkv ab ca. 0:39:00 kleine audio bugs (ton weg) --Martl 23:18, 2 January 2008 (CET)
  • 24c3-2402-en-lightning_talks_2007_day_4.mkv (md5: 86cc3708e774970d4a4181c8ea4c0ff0, via torrent hash dff4150b7bab1e8c9ebd5628ce4334d05a4fbf50) suddenly stops after 23 minutes, missing end? conspiracy? --Foobar 23:37, 3 January 2008 (CET)
    • fixed (see fefes blog) --AgtMulda 13:23, 4 January 2008 (CET)

A missing Video is no Bug

Hopefully all Videos except the Rule34 Contest will be released soon. We had a hard work and very little sleep@congress so give us some days to calm down a little bit.

  • Will the following videos (or videos to the following events) be placed online? (yes I attended the conference, it's just that I would like to review them): 2133, 2254, 2257, 2277, 2281, 2335, 2351, 2359, 2366, 2379, 2385, 2401

Some events on the last day are still in the queue since the guys from FeM left quickly after the finishing event, and are taking some days off. --Niere 23:34, 1 January 2008 (CET)

Thank you very much, for your hard work loading all that videos up! I do enjoy them.

Not a bug per se

For the sake of bandwidth preservation, I have noticed that many of the videos have a black border encoded into the video around the actual content. The mpeg format creates a lot of bytes when it has a transition from colour to black. This is most common when it is from the overhead projector as opposed to the camera, the camera always seems to fill the entire frame. However, if things were sized properly, so that the black was cropped out the resulting mpeg files would be smaller, and thus not require as much bandwidth to download or disk space to store. It does not matter (to me) if this is done on the existing videos, but I think it would be a good thing to make a note of for next time. Yes bandwidth and disk is getting cheaper and will continue to do so in the future, but why waste it? :) Trixter 17:33, 27 January 2008 (CET)
