Well that would be twice the width of a standard video, so 32:9. Basically make a video twice the width of a standard HD video.

United States ray - May 21st, 2015, 4:40 pm in Vintage Macs

Hi,
How do u print from an older mac when u no longer have an apple or other printer that had adb?? And without usb??? I tried using Ethernet via a Linksys router but couldn't get past the router for some reason. Any hints or tips for printing from the Ethernet port. Is there an adb to usb converter available?? Any other suggestions??? Also is there a way to hook the older mac up to a G4 somehow and transfer to the G4 and print from there??
Ray.

OP: ray … Nobody has replied to this topic yet. Be the first.

.mov is just a container, not a codec. A .mov file can contain video tracks of any variety of codecs (and audio track, which have their own selection of codecs). As I said before I have no experience with other software so I can't really speak for that, but H.264 is usually okay if you're only playing one on a computer. H.264 is extremely resource intensive so having multiple ones going never works out even on brand new high end Macs.

As for Macs vs. PCs, it's really about OS X not the hardware itself. A 5,200 RPM Mac Mini will play and sync an AIC-encoded video more reliably than most any Windows PC I've tested. Best advice I can give: don't be spec-obsessed.

1: There is no "headless" server option yet, although that's oft requested and I plan to implement it sometime in the future.

2: Not at this time.

3: I have no idea.

60fps would probably be fine on a newer Mac using Apple Intermediate Codec and flash storage. Haven't tested it myself.

Now is probably a good time to mention that there will not be any further updates to ArraySync, but rather a complete rewrite from the ground-up (and a rename/rebranding). Among the many improvements, I hope to switch the PC version to Windows Media rather than QuickTime, which should improve behavior on PCs greatly.

Hi Ray,

I programmed Hyperscripts for more then 10 years, and wrote externals for PPC.
Can you describe what you want the script to do?

You’ll want to get familiar with the offset functionality. This thread is a good explanation of how it works: viewtopic.php?f=274&t=22947

ArrayShaker had a lot of issues that honestly were too difficult to solve. You’re better off making your videos manually in Premiere or Final Cut, or making one big video and setting the proper offsets in ArraySync as explained above.

I usually recommend people don't rely on computer-to-computer networks but rather use a dedicated wireless router or access point. They can be gotten for so incredibly cheap these days and solves a lot of headaches. Here is one for only $20.

Better still would be to not rely on WiFi at all if possible. It's always best to hardwire the machines into the router if that's possible for you.

Yes, ArraySync will use both display ports of each Mac Mini. So you'd need three Mac Minis to power six displays over a network.

ArraySync will be able to do this. You can try it in demo mode before you buy for up to 10 days.

Quoting Mazze:

Thanks for the quick reply and the explanation. It's working now (even if the video is stuttering sometimes, gonna play with video settings a bit to tweak it)!


Try using Apple Intermediate Codec for video and AAC for audio. Might work better than H.264 if that’s what you’re using (H.264 is extremely resource intensive).

Hmm that’s interesting. There is not a way to do that currently however a complete rewrite is in planning/creating stages so I can try to fit that in.

Thanks!

I'm doing some testing with trial version of ArraySync to make sure that this will work for my company. However, I am having issues with getting video to play on the external screen which is attached to my Retina MBP.

Any ideas?

That I could not explain, it's one of those situations where I'd have to be there to inspect all the devices and try to ascertain what's happening.

How about some specifics on the computer? CPU, RAM, HD, Year of manufacture and if you did a backup before updating (presumably to Yosemite)?

Thank you Turboladdade and Mark for your suggestions. I did check the System Preferences suggestion and there was nothing listed there to start up iTunes. I do have Applecare and am planning to take it to a Apple Store close-by. Thanking you for your input. Bernard

If you've chopped them up into five separate videos they should play fine. Is there anyway you can send a pic or video of what's happening exactly? Because I don't really understand what you're saying.

Also, are you using any video splitters like Matrox Triple Head? Because those probably won't work with ArraySync.

Netherlands Joanna - August 18th, 2014, 9:12 am in Mac OS X

OK so this topic can be closed now.
I had to buy a new "Apple Magic Mouse" and the new one works.
Sometimes things do get broken. I did everything possible to avoid spending money, insulting reinstall of Mac OS from Recovery partition, installing upgrades and changing settings and following all other suggestions I could find, it didn't work. Even after installing (upgrading) memory from 4 GB to 16GB and upgrading OS to Mavericks then installing all the updates, this one problem persisted. I had a haunch it was a hardware problem because it worked partially.
But by trying to solve this one I did solve a lot of other problems on the way, like my printer which wasn't printing. I had to fix a wifi connection at home, upgraded the memory and OS, reinstalled another computer and solved problems there (laptop, Windows) so, all in all, something positive came out of it...I cleared all my IT-related issues. During this whole process, a lot of new countless issues came up and I solved them all so I learned a lot, but in reality, it is never ending learning process.

OK, this topic can be closed now.
Here are steps I've done to help other users:
Reinstalled the printer software.
1) download the latest printer software (including drivers) from Epson website (only found it on UK website, NL website didn't have it, I am in the Netherlands).
2) choose between wireless or via usb cable - in my case usb cable; plug it in and switch on the printer
3) removed the printer using "-" button (uninstall it temporary)
4) add the same printer using "+" button - it will show on the bottom, the least of available printers nearby
5) test print a page - it works

No, each computer only recognizes its own displays. They talk to each other over the network to synchronize video playback.
