Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Default File information ?

When i search for audio-files i ONLY see (bitrate) information when i found audio-files from Bearshare sources.
Is it possible to show file-information (audio & video) from Phex sources (and other sources) in a new Phex release?

That would be very nice!

I put my hand up for this one too. It is handy being able to see audio id3 tag information for (a) downloads (b) search results (c) library files

What id3 tag information can do:
Show audio file duration (time length of song)
Bitrate
Artist
Album (if any)
Description
Genre

With this information it helps to (1) know you are getting what you are seeking. (b) analyze the details to check the data is correct & is not a spammed corrupt file or a mistitled file, etc.

With ability to see id3 tag information, the above information can be compared between one's library files & search results to be sure you are not downloading the same file. I find this is an issue for same title song, different version from different concert for example. It's almost impossible to know unless the file name incorporates that information, else id3 tag information can be seen.

Bitrate is more important than many people realise. Being able to see bitrate also enables you to be able to choose a good quality encoding (in hope it was not recoded from another mp3), and as suggested above, compare to be sure it is not a deliberately corrupted file.

As it is, there is no show bit-rate options for the columns.

I just went digging a bit for java id3 libraries.

The ones which sound best to me and are still active are jaudiotagger and entagged:

- https://jaudiotagger.dev.java.net/
- Entagged | Developer

The License is LGPL in both cases, so they can be used directly.

I didn't list myID3, as its license (Apache) might conflict mith the GPlv2 - to be able to use it, Phex might have to switch to using the GPLv3 which add compatibility to the Apache license.

Entagged also gives option for lossless formats such as FLAC & APE (I didn't realise FLAC had some vulnerabilities.) It seems Entagged has some compabitility with WAV, I hope that also includes AIFF.
I did not read the full details of jaudiotagger since I need to register at Java.

I presume with both the first two types that m4a/aac support means it also recognises Apple's Lossless format which has the same file extension. AAC support 'might' also give some information with video files. A "might" I suggest in "hope". lol

I would greatly look forward to this being incorporated into Phex in the future. Which one chosen is the question I guess.

Edit: Looked at some of jaudiotagger details. Glad to see the mp3 id3 tag abilities appear to be full & up to date. Also has WAV, ogg vorbis abilities.

Any idea if or when these abilities will be added?

Bumps this topic. I wondered if any initial works have been tried out yet experimentally into adopting any of the above audio tag readers for both search results & library?

I just heard from Gregor, that he's currently stomped with real-life work, so I think it will take some time till he gets to try it.

But while we're at that: Here's something new for Phex, written by Tamara for her studies: Pootle for Phex

Bump !

A file description tool which could handle multiple files at once would be golden in my opinion.

Why multiple file descriptor? Example: 300 photos from a camping trip in mountains. Can describe 130 files as being waterfalls. Describe 100 as being forest pictures, 70 photos as beach, etc.

Being able to view description of a file in search results should accompany this.
